Engagement Opportunities

Alumni in Residence

This program gives students and faculty the opportunity to interact with highly-accomplished alumni through guest lectures, lunches and informal meetings over the course of a full or half day. 

One-to-One Matched Mentoring

For college students, having a mentor or an experienced role model to cultivate their talent and provide ongoing support can make a life-changing impact on both their academics and post-collegiate futures. Through NovaNetwork, the College provides a robust mentoring platform to match students with available alumni mentors; the platform provides tools and resources to support both mentors and mentees.

  

Immersion Experiences

Connect with students during one of our week-long immersion trips. Villanova on the Hill brings students to Washington, D.C., to learn about the policymaking ecosystem, and Villanova on Set introduces students to alumni leaders in Hollywood.

BRIDGE SOCIETY

Join a networking event hosted by the BRIDGE society, a student-run organization that strives to build relationships between students and alumni. Events are held throughout the academic year to help students learn about a wide variety of careers.
