Photo Friday: Chair-ish The Memories

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!

Graduation Doesn't Mean Goodbye: 8 things you may miss about Villanova

Congratulations, Class of 2014 ! Now comes the hard part!  Before you leave, let’s review a list of some things you might actually miss from Villanova.

 

1. Free Printing

Say goodbye to that $60 in print quota, and hello to notion of buying a home printer.

2. NovaBucks

Remember when you felt like a king with all of the NovaBucks you had…

3. Waking up Late

Picking out your own schedule and avoiding sunlight as if you were a vampire.

4. 3×5 Index Cards

That feeling when the ACS professor lets you use a 3×5 index card for your final.

Doesn’t really work like that in the real world.

 

5. Wearing whatever you want

Deciding between bell-bottoms and Uggs or gym shorts with stilettos was a tough choice. Now comes the realization that 95% of your wardrobe is not business appropriate.

6. Free Gym

Using the gym on campus was convenient and modern. Now you have to resort to more dangerous tactics.

 

7. Living close to your friends

All of those friendships you have built up over the college years are basically cut in half, with friends moving home or to another city for a job.

8. Summer vacations

Say goodbye to those 3 month vacations, unless you are becoming a teacher, of course. If you have the money for a vacation, it will probably be just 2 weeks.

 

But one thing you do not have to miss out on…access to an award-winning library.

Falvey grants courtesy memberships to alumni, making it possible for you to access our entire collection and online databases (while on site). No need to break the computer to find out more information.

Just come to the front desk and we’ll be happy to help! And remember to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube to keep up with events and information from your Alma Mater.
