The mission of Villanova University's learning communities is to enhance student learning by creating integrated learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom as students transition to college life. Learning communities have 3 main components, all of which will add to your experience as a First-Year Student at Villanova.
We are particularly interested in creating dialogue among students who are open to exploring relationships, who see the college experience as an opportunity to learn not only about things, but themselves, each other, and how all of these relate to God.

Senior Scholars Say:
"Our dinner dialogues were always like a breath of fresh air for me -- they helped me take a step back and consider my faith, something that I don't always make time for in my day-to-day life. Those moments became very important to me over the past three years."
"I have had the opportunity to meet a group of people all with the same focus of school and integrated faith. I never thought I would be able to connect with these students (and faculty) in one setting. I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to experience faith and learning these three years."
"I'm a more confident person. Not just in my faith life, though that's certainly true, but I feel like a more well-rounded individual for having participated in this program. I'm more open. I'm more comfortable talking about myself and my experiences."
