Turkey Drive

CPS Supports Campus Ministry Turkey Drive with Basketball Giveaway!

The College of Professional Studies, comprised of both the Offices of Part-Time and Continuing Studies is excited to announce its support for Campus Ministry’s Turkey Dinner Drive.

A Chance to Win!

We are all winners when it comes to helping others in need and this Thanksgiving the College of Professional Studies is adding a little bit of extra incentive. Every item donated qualifies for a chance to win a pair of basketball tickets to a Villanova Men’s Basketball game at the Wells Fargo Center – of your choosing! That’s right, you pick the date!

Did you say every item?

Donate one item, earn one chance. Donate two items, earn two chances. Donate three items… well, you’ll just have to donate to see what happens! The more you donate, the more chances you have to win the tickets.  Remember to include your name and contact information with your donation!

What and Where?

Starting immediately and running through Thursday, November 20, you can drop off canned goods (cranberry sauce, seasonal vegetable) or boxed stuffing to the Office of Part-Time Studies in Vasey Hall, room 108.  (Donations will be accepted until 8 P.M. each evening and from 9-12 on Saturday)

It’s about giving back!

Remember, basketball tickets are fun, but your donation goes towards helping a family in need this Thanksgiving. Let’s show the Villanova community just how strong Part-Time and Continuing students can give back. #NovaGiveStrong

National Non-Traditional Student Week 2014

Villanova University/ The College of Professional Studies

National Non-Traditional Student Week 2014 was celebrated from November 3-7. This was a celebration of the extraordinary lengths that part-time, evening, online, and/or adult students go through to complete their degrees. Though the terms and definitions may vary, there is no disputing the fact that non-traditional students constitute over one-third of all those seeking a degree.

Here at Villanova University’s College of Professional Studies our non-traditional students come from a variety of backgrounds. Whether it is a working parent, a military professional returning to civilian life, a career-changer looking for a non-credit certificate, or a working professional looking for a second chance, Villanova’s community of Non-Traditional Learners share both an ability to persevere and a desire to overcome and succeed.

Villanova University’s College of Professional Studies, including the Offices of both Part-Time and Continuing Studies, celebrated Non-Traditional Student Week 2014 with a number of fun and educational events. The goal was to both embrace our students and inform the Villanova community at-large in a fun and jovial way.

The calendar of events included a T-Shirt a-day raffle, a pizza/coffee event for our students, and an award for an outstanding non-traditional student leader. We will shared stories all week long of our students, and solicited stories from our students as well. Find us on Twitter and Facebook. Use the hashtag #NovaNTSW2014

National Non-Traditional Student Week 2014

Distinguished Student Award

And the vote is in...

We had a wonderful array of nominees for the Distinguished Student Award, (and we will continue to share these stories the rest of the week), but alas, there can be only one...

Actually, it was a tie for the Part-Time Studies student winner! Ann Marie Walsh & Julie Wallace are our first ever Distinguished Student Award Winners! Julie took home a pair of basketball tickets and Ann Marie took home a gift card to the bookstore! The Continuing Studies went to Cynthia B. Gamble who took home a gift card to the bookstore.

Their names will be engraved on a plaque in the office as well.

Let's congratulate them. And celebrate them!

Congratulations to Part-Time Studies student Stephen Kane, '14 (Media & Technology) on winning The Center for Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship (ICE Center) annual Meyer Innovation and Creative Excellence (ICE) Award for CLAS!

Kane earned the Meyer ICE Award through his participation as a radio host on WXVU and being a columnist for the Arts and Entertainment section of the newspaper at Villanova, where he wrote many articles pertaining to the nature of local musicians who struggle to promote their art. Through the newspaper and the radio station, Kane has created a vehicle for the less renowned artists of the area to creatively and openly exhibit their talent.
