I’m Daniella Snyder, a first-year graduate student at Villanova University, and your ‘Cat in Falvey Library’s Stacks. I’ll be posting about academics– from research to study habits and everything in between– and how the Falvey Library can play a large role in your success here on campus!



Happy Earth Week, Wildcats! This week (and every other week, too!) Villanova University wants you to “Ignite Change” by going green!

As a Villanova student, utilize the Augustinian values of Unitas, Veritas, and Caritas. The mission encourages you to love thy neighbor, promote community unity, and live life in moderation.

Tonight, I encourage you to ignite change (and go green!) by attending Villanova’s Earth Day Keynote Address at 6 p.m. in the Driscoll Auditorium.

This year’s keynote address will feature Dr. John Balbus, Senior Adviser at the National Institute of Environmental Health Science at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dr. Balbus is a nationally recognized specialist in understanding the impacts of climate change on human health. He also leads NIEHS efforts on climate change and human health.

Dr. Balbus’ background combines training and experience in clinical medicine with expertise in epidemiology, toxicology, and risk sciences. He received his A.B. degree in Biochemistry from Harvard University, his M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, and his M.P.H. from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.
