This week’s “Throwback Thursday” (TBT) is a celebration of Villanova alumni! Check out this image of Alumni Hall featured in the 1938 Belle Air Yearbook (page. 11).

We celebrate our recent alumni, the Class of 2022, and the Class of 2020. This weekend, Villanova University is welcoming back the Villanova Class of 2020 (bachelor’s degree recipients) for a special celebration weekend, as this class did not have an in-person Commencement ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The full schedule of events for the celebration (June 3—June 5) can be found here.

Kallie Stahl ’17 MA is Communication and Marketing Specialist at Falvey Memorial Library.





#TBT: Sweet Times at the Oreo

The Oreo statue in 1991, The Awakening, and students

The Awakening, an abstract sculpture donated by artist Jay Dugan, greets students as they make their way through campus. The dome of Alumni Hall peeks through the trees.



Check out this throwback to 1991. Students walk on campus with The Awakening statue, or what is now fondly known as the “Oreo,” in the background. The statue has been a well-loved campus landmark since 1985.

For more information on the Oreo sculpture, check out this sweet blog by Alice Bampton.
