Photo Friday: Hidden Inspiration

Image of a post-it note on Falvey's second floor stating "You're doing great! Be proud of all you've done!"


Found this hidden on Falvey’s second floor. Thought we’d share as the semester comes to a close.

Good luck on finals, Nova Nation!

Walking through Falvey Memorial Library you’ll see two window display cases on the first floor. At the entrance to Holy Grounds, these displays welcome many patrons, often informing them about upcoming events and library resources. Frequently changing throughout the semester, there are many people that assist in the design, creation and installation of these displays. Be sure to check out the Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week (HHAW) display beginning Monday, Nov. 14. Allie Reczek ’22 CLAS (pictured above), Olivia Dunn ’23 CLAS, and Kelly McMahon ’22 CLAS, helped craft the banner featured in the informational exhibit.

For additional information on HHAW, running Nov. 14—20, please visit Campus Ministry’s website.

On Wednesday, Nov. 3, more than 60 Villanova University students, staff, and faculty gathered in Falvey Memorial Library’s Speakers’ Corner to check out “books” from the Interfaith Human Library. Engaging in dialogue about various religious traditions, attendees met with “books”—Villanova faculty, staff, graduate students of diverse backgrounds—for three 20-minute sessions.

Below is the list of “books” that hosted conversations on their faith background:

  • Dr. Gity Etemad (Baha’i)
  • Jaskirat Singh (Sikh)
  • Dr. Ruth Anolik (Jewish)
  • Rev. Carolyn Cavaness (African Methodist Episcopal)
  • Dr. Moeness Amin (Muslim)
  • Asheq Fazlullah (Muslim)
  • Rebecca Mays (Society of Friends—Quaker)
  • Fr. Art Purcaro (Roman Catholic/Augustinian)
  • Fr. Kevin DePrinzio (Roman Catholic/Augustinian)

Thank you to all of the “books” for sharing their traditions, and thank you to all of the Villanova community members who attended this discussion. This event was co-sponsored by Campus Ministry, the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, and Falvey Memorial Library. Stay tuned for updates on the next Interfaith Human Library event.

""It’s College Colors Day, so, of course, we’re reppin’ our blue and white!

 

Keep the celebration going and check out “Wildcats Past & Present: Moments from the History of Sports at Villanova.” The online exhibit features assorted and unique items representing the various sports played at Villanova College, and later Villanova University. Villanovans have always shown their school spirit–explore sport programs, basketballs, baseball, photographs, newspaper clippings as well as championship memorabilia from University Archives’ collection along with books and scrapbooks from Special Collections.

The exhibit, based on a legacy exhibit curated by Teri Ann Pirone, was curated by Susan Ottignon, former Collections Librarian, with assistance from Laura Bang, Distinctive Collections Librarian, and Michael Foight, Director of Distinctive Collections and Digital Engagement. Graphics provided by Joanne Quinn, Director of Communication and Marketing.

“Don’t underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”
—A.A. Milne

With finals in bloom, remember to take a break and enjoy the springtime!

Note: Alan Alexander Milne (A.A. Milne) is author of Winnie-the-Pooh (1926). Thinking of making a trip to the Hundred Acre Wood? May 3-9 is Children’s Book Week, the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Pause the studying and pick up your favorite childhood book for a brief recess.
