CURRENT STUDENTS

Students in discussion

The Honors Program offers robust programming and various ways for students to connect with each other, with faculty and with program alumni.

  

GET CONNECTED

The Honors Program provides meaningful mentorship to students who have excelled and continue to excel academically. Fellow students, faculty members and alumni are ready to help guide you as you chart your own path—intellectually, professionally and personally. 

Peer
Mentors

First- and second-year students can be paired with upper-class Honors students who can help them navigate the program and Villanova at large.

Faculty Mentors

Faculty from across colleges and various disciplines are available to speak with students exploring their academic and professional interests.

Alumni Mentors

Honors alumni volunteers are available to help students and recent graduates navigate their post-undergraduate lives, both professionally and academically.

Vocare Summer Fellows Program

 

Encourages students to explore work or study experiences that promote justice—environmental, racial, social, economic, etc.—and supports them through summer grants

  

GET INVOLVED

Honors students have numerous opportunities to engage in leadership activities within the program. Students can begin participating in leadership as early as first year.

Honors Ambassadors

Honors Ambassadors represent the Honors Program at recruiting events such as Candidates' Weekends and the Academic Majors Fair, and on individual prospective student visits.

  

Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors guide other students, especially first-years and sophomores, through the registration process and become a resource for peers deciding on a major or help them plan their schedules for next semester.   

Each mentor is given a group of mentees, meeting with them regularly in the first year and later as needed. Students must be rising sophomores to apply; applications are generally solicited late in the spring semester.

Polis Magazine

Join the editorial board or contribute as a writer or artist to the program's student-produced literary magazine.

  

Student Advisory Board

Help shape the Program’s future by providing feedback on your experiences and Honors’ programming. 

This board, which meets two to three times per year, is open to students in any college or year. Applications will open to first-year students early in the fall semester, and will include a résumé and letter of intent.

STUDENT RESOURCES

Villanova University offers a wide variety of academic and professional support services to help students reach new levels of achievement, even in subject areas in which they already excel. University-wide and college-based resources provide specialized, one-on-one services intended to cultivate success.
