Reconnect, Reunite

Villanovans from all classes — especially those ending in 4 and 9 celebrating their milestone Reunions — came together for 2019 Reunion Weekend.

University President the Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, PhD, ’75 CLAS provided his vision for Villanova during the President’s Lecture, and other celebrations included class meetups, a Mass for married couples, a family-friendly outdoor festival and Supernova —Villanova’s annual Reunion dinner dance.

The Class of 1969 was honored at the Half-Century Dinner, where Nance Dicciani, PhD, ’69 COE, a former University Trustee and the retired president and CEO of Honeywell Specialty Materials, received the St. Thomas of Villanova Alumni Medal, the Villanova University Alumni Association’s highest honor.
