UNITAS Weekend: July 8-10

During UNITAS, you will have the chance to meet and hear from other incoming first-year classmates, upperclassmen, faculty, staff and guest speakers. You will also learn more about academic, athletic, medical, professional and social resources at Villanova and be able to ask questions pertaining to student life on campus, including dining and residential living, Greek life, clubs, sports, basketball games, and much more. To learn more and to register, visit the UNITAS 2022 website.
