Coffee is a staple on Villanova’s campus, especially in the Connelly Center! Throwing it back to the 1992-1993 academic year, campus coffee shops were a great place to find confections and cappuccinos!

What’s your go-to Holy Grounds order?

Midterms week is almost over, you can make it to Spring Break! For today’s TBT, check out this photo of the Belle Air Terrace in Connelly Center from the 1990s from Falvey’s digital collection. Can you spot some of the differences from the way Belle Air is set up today? 

For the final push of midterms studying you can find perfect study spots all over campus, including any floor of Falvey and in the Old Falvey Reading Room. As soon as you’re done, you can fully enjoy break and hopefully some warmer weather!

This photo comes to you from the Villanova Yearbook of 1994, showing us what may be the best example of the division between those who play and those who do not. So, whether you play on mobile, console, or PC, take a moment to relax with a game, after you’re done your schoolwork, of course…
