Falvey Memorial Library student employee Kelly McMahon celebrates Family Weekend with her grandmother Carol White. Download the free Family Weekend App for the full schedule of events. A warm welcome to parents and families visiting campus this weekend!
Martin Ganda ’07 received a warm welcome during his return visit to campus on Thursday, Sept. 19. The Villanova alumni, and author of the 2019 One Book Villanova selection, I Will Always Write Back, joined students, staff, faculty, and community members for a book signing in Falvey’s Speakers’ Corner. As part of the St. Thomas of Villanova Celebration, Ganda delivered the keynote address to an eager audience in the Villanova Room.
Thank you to those who participated in the festivities. We urge you to keep the conversation going by participating in the Campus Pen Pal Program. Stop by Student Life in Dougherty Hall or Falvey Memorial Library and fill out a postcard with some fun questions about yourself. Leave your completed postcard and take a postcard from a fellow Villanovan. It’s an old school way to make a new friend on campus!
We look forward to seeing you at upcoming programs that will continue our conversation around themes raised in this year’s One Book.
We love a good book! To celebrate National Read A Book Day, pick up a copy of this year’s One Book Villanova selection, I Will Always Write Back. See which books Villanovans have frequented in our Holy Grounds display on the first floor…and be sure to grab a free Falvey sticker.
With this week’s #TBT picture we are taking it all the way back to the ’60s, when two students took advantage of the quiet atmosphere on Falvey Library’s third floor. Many students have studied in that same spot in the stacks over the years, especially when they have a paper due or finals looming!
This picture was included in the program for Falvey Memorial Library’s dedication ceremony, which took place on Saturday, Nov. 16, 1968. You can view the program in Falvey’s very own Digital Library.
