FOOD FOR THOUGHT is a lunch-and-learn program that connects you with a faculty member from the academic program to which you are admitted. In the spirit of St. Augustine, Villanova faculty and students are partners in education, learning from each other.

You will experience this relationship firsthand as you join Villanova faculty for an intimate lunch with engaging conversation about Villanova’s vibrant and distinctive community.

We are eager to share our Villanova stories with you,and hope that this experience begins an exciting Villanova chapter of your own.
