#TBT: Finals Stress Relief

It’s that time of the year when finals can leave students stressed and at their wits’ end. That is why Falvey Memorial Library organizes a finals stress relief event each year to help students get through these trying times. Let’s throwback to December 2016, when our “Finals Can Get Ugly” event included games, movies, and Will D. Cat!

This year, our finals stress relief event will feature a soundtrack from vinyl records, pizza, and games. Come to Holy Grounds between 1-3 p.m. on December 12 to have a bite to eat and relieve some stress.

#TBT: National Video Games Day

Throwback Thursday

Pick up them sticks! It’s National Video Games Day, not to be confused with the entirely different National Video Game Day celebrated on July 8th. This photo comes to you from the Villanova Yearbook of 1994, showing us what may be the best example of the division between those who play and those who do not. So, whether you play on mobile, console, or PC, take a moment to relax with a game, after you’re done your schoolwork, of course…

#TBT: Look how they grow up

Throwback Thursday

This photo comes to you from the Yearbook of 1994, when the trees beside Falvey Library were little more than saplings. Look for their leaves to turn a vibrant orange this fall.

#TBT Outdated Upon Completion: The Library’s Brief Two Decades in Austin Hall

 

 

Throwback Thursday

“The old Villanova College Library in the east wing of Austin Hall proved too small almost as soon as it was completed in 1924. Unfortunately, the Depression of the 1930s and then World War II forced the College to postpone the building of a new library for another two decades.” -Ever Ancient, Ever New Villanova University

We have come a long way since our brief stay in Austin Hall! Can you imagine working in such a small space without headphones to eliminate distractions? Or maybe the headphones are the distractions?

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

THROWBACK THURSDAY

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: Props to Vasey Hall

The Playboy of the Western World play bill, 1960 , at Villanova

THROWBACK THURSDAY

This week, our throwback pic features a playbill from the 1960 production of “The Playboy of the Western World” by John Millington Synge. The playbill is housed in the University Archives along with many other treasures from Villanova’s past.

Did you know that the Villanova’s Theatre Program has been around since 1958? Over that time the program has produced hundreds of plays and musicals in its beloved campus home, Vasey Hall. While Vasey is centrally located on campus, it is a bit tight as other academic offices are also located in the building.

In early 2020, the University hopes to officially open a new, larger space for the Theatre Program—the Performing Arts Center as part of Villanova’s Campus Transformation Project.

We are looking forward to visiting the new space and adding more play bills to our collection. Thanks for the memories, Vasey!
