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.
The Campus Activities Team (CAT) is an entirely student run organization which seeks to further the Augustinian values of Unitas, Veritas, and Caritas on Villanova’s campus by creating programming and experiences for students and for the Villanova community as a whole. This is done through creating events and programs for everyone, supporting other clubs and organizations to create the events they would like to see on campus, and presenting different perspectives and narratives to the university’s campus.
