’Cat in the Stacks: Second Semester, Second Round

CAT-STAX4I’m William Repetto, a second-year graduate student at Villanova University. This is the “‘Cat in the Stacks” column. I’m your ‘cat. I’ll be posting about college life, about learning and growing here at Villanova, and, of course, about the Falvey Memorial Library’s role.

A refreshing winter holiday has once again given way to a new semester. While snow has blanketed campus for today, we know that soon spring will, well, spring, and April showers will once again bring mayflowers. One critical difference between this second semester and last: this one will be my last as your ’Cat in the Stacks.

Just two ’Cats getting ready for a new semester! (and an Eagles Superbowl)

I know; I know. To some of you this may come as very sad news, indeed. I won’t feed you some cliché like “all good things must come to an end,” but, unfortunately, this good thing must. It’s my last semester as a graduate student here at Villanova; I’ll write my thesis and take another walk across stage, but thus my graduate assistantship at Falvey will be up, and you’ll need to meet a new ’Cat.

Fortunately, however, this semester promises to go down as one of the best yet here at the library. In addition to our usual spring programming – e.g., Lit Fest, CONCEPT launch – it looks like we have Hispanic heritage events on the horizon as well as a celebration of diversity and inclusion (more details to come on those events via the blog).

But let’s focus on you for a moment, Wildcats. After all, you don’t come to this blog for me to browbeat you with shameless promotions. As we work to make this semester our very best at Falvey, I’d encourage you too to make this your best semester yet. Set new goals! Make new friends! Sign up for that new club or activity – you won’t regret it.

2018’s looking bright for Peek at the Week author, Hunter Houtzer, as well! She’ll be finishing an M.A. in communication.

Whether it’s the second semester of your first year or the second semester of your senior year, you still have time to achieve new heights, find new hobbies, or discover a new passion. Between our subject librarians and exciting programming, our databases and the faculty/staff hard at work in circulation, Falvey is here to help you make this your best semester yet.
