Photo Friday: Rock of Love

Image of the Falvey Memorial Library building sign taken outside on a sunny day. On the top left corner of the sign is a small rock with a red heart drawn on it.


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!

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!

TBT: Snowy Campus Scenes

With more snow forecasted for today, it’s only fitting that our TBT include another snowy campus picture. This picture can be found in Falvey’s digital library and shows the exterior of St. Thomas of Villanova church with snow leading up to the church. This photo was taken in 1960, although the snowy scene looks a lot like the snowy scenes we’ve seen on campus today!

TBT: Snow-Covered Campus

Campus, Snow scene with view of Grotto and Chemical Engineering Building, 1970

We have officially had our first (two) snow days of the semester! In case you weren’t able to wander around campus in the snow earlier this week, here’s a picture of the snowy campus from 1971. It can be found in Falvey’s digital library here. The picture shows a view of the Grotto and Chemical Engineering building all covered in snow.

What campus scene do you miss the most? I think I’m a little biased, but I definitely miss cozying up in Falvey for a study session!

Jack-O’-Lantern

by John B. Tabb
“JACK-O’-LANTERN, Jack-o’-Lantern,
Tell me where you hide by day?”
“In the cradle where the vapours
Dream the sunlit hours away.”
“Jack-o’-Lantern, Jack-o’-Lantern,
Who rekindles you at night?”
“Any firefly in the meadow
Lends a Jack-o’-Lantern light.”

Hundreds of pumpkins awaited the arrival of Villanova students to carve masterpieces on their orange canvases.

#TBT: Sweet Times at the Oreo

The Oreo statue in 1991, The Awakening, and students

The Awakening, an abstract sculpture donated by artist Jay Dugan, greets students as they make their way through campus. The dome of Alumni Hall peeks through the trees.

 

THROWBACK THURSDAY

Check out this throwback to 1991. Students walk on campus with The Awakening statue, or what is now fondly known as the “Oreo,” in the background. The statue has been a well-loved campus landmark since 1985.

For more information on the Oreo sculpture, check out this sweet blog by Alice Bampton.
