Recent photo of Belle Air Terrace

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!

TBT: Old Falvey Reading Room

As we officially head into March and the temperature starts to pick up (at least a couple degrees!), it seems as though our coursework does as well. For this week’s TBT we travel to the 1960s and the Falvey Hall Reading Room. Falvey still offers great study spaces 60 years later, so make sure to come in and find the perfect spot to get your work done. 

This photograph comes from the University Archives and can be found in Villanova’s digital collection.

Photo Friday: Reading is Not Canceled

Students Reading in Old Falvey

Just a reminder, no matter whether you’re wrapped up in blankets with your favorite story, sussing out the deep meanings in St. Augustine’s Confessions for your class, or studying a textbook in Old Falvey (as seen here), reading is not canceled.

So, after you text to check in with your friends and family, try self-isolating with your favorite book this weekend.

#TBT: 1951 Commencement

1951, 1951 commencement, mendel field, villanova. alumni reunion weekend

THROWBACK THURSDAY

In honor of Villanova University’s upcoming 82nd annual Alumni Reunion Weekend, here’s a throwback pic of the 1951 commencement ceremony. The crowd pictured is standing on Mendel Field, in front of the Villanova College library (what we now lovingly refer to as “Old Falvey”). Check out that 50’s fashion, peeps.

This photo and many more gems like it can be found in the University Archives. It is part of the online exhibit: Villanova College to University: 150 Years of Augustinian Tradition and Promise 1842-1992.

Falvey Library would like to wish alumni a wonderful weekend on campus. Welcome home, Wildcats! Additional information about Reunion 2019 can be found here.
