A special thank you to the Idea Lab in Falvey Library for hosting a coffee brewing workshop for the Villanova community on Thursday, April 7.

Falvey staff members—and coffee lovers—Jutta Seibert, Director of Research Services and Scholarly Engagement, and History, Art History, Global Interdisciplinary Studies Librarian, and Kallie Stahl, Communication and Marketing Specialist, learned how the coffee roasting process works and roasted their own beans in a popcorn maker. Stahl roasted a Columbian blend, while Seibert selected an Ethiopian brew.

Check out more programming at the Idea Lab here. Have a brewtiful weekend, Wildcats!

Photo Friday: Spring Is (Almost) Here


“January. February. Villanova. April. May.”

I’m sure you’ve seen Maura White’s t-shirt design featured on The Nationer [if you haven’t already, check it out]. As if Villanovans need another reason to celebrate March, spring officially begins in two days! Signs of the shifting season have already begun to blossom on campus. This photo of Driscoll Hall was taken on this beautiful, sunny morning.

Have a great weekend, ‘Nova Nation—Go, Cats!

Photo Friday: Icy Mornings

Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning …

Wm. Wordsworth (1770-1850)

If you were lucky enough to be on campus this morning, you would have seen thick, magical ice, worn like a winter coat on every branch and shrub. When students return to campus on March 7 after Spring Break, morning scenes like this may be rare until next winter, so enjoy it while you may.

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.

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.
