Join the Class of 2020 Facebook Group

We invite you to become a member of the official Villanova University Class of 2020 Facebook Group. This group consists of a few current Villanova students and members of the admission staff and most importantly, you, the newest members of the Nova Nation.  This site will serve as a place where you can ask questions, keep up to date with what is happening on campus and connect with those Wildcats who will be part of your Villanova story. (Please note that by joining this group you agree to uphold the student code of conduct.)


Attend a Summer New Student Send-Off

A New Student Send-Off is a great way to start your college journey and begin building a Villanova network before stepping foot on campus! Join alumni, current students, families and staff to learn more about college life at Villanova. Enjoy food, gifts and advice while meeting other Wildcats from your class!

These events will be held across the country during the summer of 2016.  Please visit the Villanova Alumni Association's website or alumni.villanova.edu/sendoffs for the schedule and more information.
