Foto Friday: The Songbirds are Singing

“Hope” is the thing with feathers

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.

A Golden-crowned Kinglet stopped to sing a song at Falvey Library.

Photo Friday: Happy First Week of Classes!

By Shawn Proctor

One week into classes on campus, and it’s heartwarming to see all of the friendly half-faces and know that underneath those thousands of masks are thousands of smiles. On Sunday, we caught up with one of the amazing counselors that make Villanova Orientation a special tradition.

She was kind enough to pause in the rain for a Photo Friday snap and tell us about her Falvey Favorite spot!

“While I love all of the resources and study spots in the Library, I have to shout-out the Writing Center. The one-on-one structure of tutorials guarantees an individualized, valuable experience for all student writers. As a tutor and Undergraduate Assistant at the Center myself, this second-floor destination holds a special place in my heart. :)”

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.
