#TBT: Dorm Days

As we inch closer to the start of a new academic year, Villanova is beginning to prepare for the busy days to come. Dorm days are on the horizon again as we approach Orientation and Move-In Day in August.  Enjoy this fun throwback to 1991, when corded phones were all the rage and the dorm room décor looked a tad different.

If you are looking for more flashback photos and information about the history of Villanova, check out the book Ever Ancient, Ever New: Villanova University 1842-1992. It’s available at Falvey’s reference desk for in-house viewing.
