Photo Friday: Colorful Cat

This art mural was outlined and painted by Betsy Z. Casanas and numerous Villanova community members during the University’s first-annual Inclusion Week (September 27, 2022—October 1, 2022.) The Inclusion Week Mural Celebration was sponsored by the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Department of the Villanova University Student Government Association. If you haven’t seen the finished project, stop by the West Campus basketball courts on your next visit to campus.

If you look closely, you’ll see that someone left a rock of love on the Library’s sign.

Have a lovely weekend, Nova Nation!

Campus is beautiful every spring, but this week it always seems to exude a certain charm. The excitement radiating from graduates travels from all corners of the University. From Commencement weekend preparations (shown above) to seniors donning their academic regalia for one more photo in front of the St. Thomas of Villanova Church, the days leading up to graduation are truly special. Grads, cherish these final moments as a Villanova University student.

Congratulations to the Class of 2022! Falvey Library wishes you all the best in your future endeavors. Be sure to come back and visit—Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat!

Thank you, Coach Wright.

Thank you for the wonderful memories these past 21 years. Thank you for your dedication to Villanova basketball and the Villanova community.

Over the past few days, many have commented on Coach Wright’s legacy; just ask Jessica Bianchi ’20, who quantified Wright’s greatness in her honors thesis for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. ‘Nova Nation is thankful for Coach Wright’s leadership and attitude—both on and off the basketball court. His values and principles have had a lasting impact on all Villanovans, inspiring us to be leaders in our own lives.

As the Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, PhD, Villanova President, says, “Jay taught us all the true meaning of attitude.” That mindset will stay with us all, whether we’re playing for a team, learning in the classroom, or upholding Villanova’s Augustinian tradition.

Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat.

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.

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.
