Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat!

Welcome to the official homepage of Villanova's Young Alumni! Whether you graduated this past year or ten years ago, the Alumni Association is here to help you reconnect with fellow Wildcats, meet new friends, and explore interesting opportunities that your Alumni Association has to offer.

Career networking, attending alumni events, accessing discounted products and services, and volunteering are just some of the benefits of your Alumni Association.


Our Young Alumni gather frequently at all kinds of events, from networking to game watches. View a list of all upcoming events on our Alumni Calendar.

  • Homecoming - Reunite with friends and classmates on campus during Homecoming Weekend! Graduates of the youngest alumni class are welcomed back to campus to celebrate their Zero-Year Reunion, and all Young Alumni are invited to Young Alumni Pub Night to kick-off our Homecoming Weekend festivities
  • Reunions  - Celebrate your past at Villanova during Reunion Weekend! In particular, Young Alumni can reunite with classmates at their Class Dinner Parties Friday night, class tents at the Reunion Picnic Saturday afternoon, and at Supernova Saturday night.
  • Villanova Day of Service - Each year, the Day of Service brings together nearly 5,000 Villanova community members working with neighborhood agencies to perform service throughout Greater Philadelphia. Register to join our Young Alumni Service Team where we will volunteer with our community throughout the day and enjoy drinks at a location near the service site afterwards.
