Welcome to the Villanova University Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps, part of the Philadelphia NROTC Consortium commanded by Col. Stephen Marchioro, USMC.
Located in John Barry Hall on the university's campus in Villanova, Pennsylvania. The battalion consists of more than 90 Navy and Marine Corps midshipmen, under the advisement of a staff of highly trained and motivated Sailors and Marines. Known for its dedication to excellence, motivation, and pride, the Unit has provided our nation with the finest Navy and Marine Corps Officers for over 50 years.
A testament to this is that Villanova NROTC has produced 22 Navy Admirals and Marine Corps Generals. The mission of the NROTC unit coincides with Villanova University 's credo 'Veritas, Unitas, Caritas' or 'Truth, Unity, and Charity.'
