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.

Late-night programming is a staple of campus life! Between NOVAquizzo, Live Entertainment, Movies, and South Campus Programs, we got your late nights covered! Past events include Open Mic Nights, Bingo, and Live Music Fridays! Check out our CAT's Instagram page for the latest information.

No one celebrates annual Villanova traditions and holidays better than the Special Events Department on CAT. From Catchella to Halloween Weekend, we have all of your most cherished Villanova traditions and holidays covered. We are also excited to bring back Food Truck Fridays, On the Green Programming, and the monthly Pub Series for the Fall 2021 semester. Visit the CAT Instagram page for the latest information.

Villanova is located just 12 miles from Philadelphia and not far from New York City, the Pocono Mountains, the Jersey Shore, and more. CAT plans numerous off-campus excursions during the semester for events and provides transportation to and from each destination for a small fee. Check out our Instagram for updates!


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 people 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.

Want to Sponsor NovaQuizzo?

Approved outside vendors who wish to promote their venue to the Villanova student community can sponsor Quizzo. If interested, reach out to or visit us in Dougherty 102.

Sponsorship: NovaQuizzo is a joint venture between the Office of Student Involvement and the office of First & Second Year Initiatives. The event consists of a night of trivia and late-night food and happens every Thursday at 9:30 p.m. in Cafe Nova (Dougherty Hall) or at the Oreo. Approved sponsors can sponsor a given night by providing food, beverages, or giveaways of their choice.

NovaQuizzo can provide a 5-minute time slot and projector screen for the sponsoring entity to talk about what they brought for the night and promote their business to those in attendance. The event layout consists of seating with small tables for four people totaling a capacity of 250 students and a projector screen with a mic at the front of the venue.

CAT is proud to sponsor programming specifically designed for graduating seniors, including 21+ only events. For more information, visit our VU Seniors website.
