#TBT: Falvey Friends are Here for You in Times of Stress

Sadly, the sun is setting on summer break. Students, faculty, and staff are making a mad dash to prepare for a lively campus once again. While students are busy packing for their return to Villanova, the new dorms on Lancaster Avenue are receiving finishing touches, and materials for campus orientation events are being prepared. It’s a lot to accomplish in a few short weeks!

To help ease stress in frantic times such as these, we are happy to feature a furry friend from Pals for Life in our weekly #TBT. This photo was taken in December of 2017 at the semi-annual Stress-Free Happy Healthy Hour event in collaboration with the Office of Health Promotion. Sometimes all you need is a good friend to remind you that everything is going to be OK.

Falvey is looking forward to having all of our “pals” return to campus soon!

#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.
