Tips from Our Student Chairperson: Hannah Murphy, CLAS ‘23
Hello, Class of 2026! I hope you are excited to begin your time as a Villanova student and we are excited to see you soon. As you begin your college experience, my advice is to be patient with yourself—you are going through a variety of transitions in your lifestyle, academics and social life—allow yourself time to acclimate to these changes and take the transition day by day. The Orientation staff is preparing to welcome and support you through your first days, weeks and months ahead at Villanova and we are thrilled to meet our newest community members!

Villanova University and New Student Orientation are looking forward to welcoming you to campus. If you have additional questions regarding Orientation, please contact us at, and follow us on Instagram at @NovaOrientation.
