CAT: Campus Activities Team

The Campus Activities Team (CAT) is an entirely student-run organization that creates events and programs for an inclusive campus community. CAT partners with student organizations for various programming initiatives that help promote an active and welcoming Villanova experience.

Villanova is located just 12 miles from Philadelphia and we want students to enjoy the city and soak up the culture of Philly as much as possible. CAT plans numerous off-campus excursions during the semester for events and provides transportation to and from each destination.

Villanova University and basketball go hand-in-hand. CAT organizes men's and women's basketball game watches for nearly every contestcome out, show your school spirit and cheer on the Wildcats!

Late night programming is a staple of campus life! Newly-released movies and live entertainment such as live bands, comedians, poets and novelty act take place often and in a variety of on-campus venues. Past events include Lip Sync Battle, Ice Skating Rink, Live Music Night, and Silent Disco Party. Visit the CAT Instagram page for the latest information.


NovaQuizzo is the official Villanova University trivia night and a true recurring late-night event. Stop by every Thursday at 9:30 p.m. either virtually, at the Oreo or Cafe Nova and join dozens of other students in a night of trivia, free late-night snacks and prizes!

Maximum team size: four students. That doesn't mean you can't have more present, but if you win only four people will get prizes—so split up!

Categories: three categories of questions.

Double-down: your team can double-down once.

We host NovaQuizzo every Thursday at 9:30 p.m. when school is in session. However, if you are in doubt, feel free to reach out to us through social media and ask! The event usually runs from 9:30-11 p.m. and includes categories such as Villanova, current events, sports, music, music, history, tv shows, movies and more.
