Nova Network

Every third Thursday of each month from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Top Floor of Connelly or the Riley Ellipse

Are you new to the Nova Network and not sure how to use it? No problem! Once a month, the Villanova University Career Management team hosts a table on main campus to answer your questions about the Nova Network, a professional networking site exclusive to the Villanova community. Staff will walk you through creating an account and using the platform’s powerful features. There will even be some fun giveaways for when you stop by, and some yummy ones, too! We will be either at the Riley Ellipse or on the top floor of Connelly every third Thursday of each month during the school year, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Senior Class Gift program encourages seniors to give back any amount to an area of campus that they’re passionate about—whether that's a favorite student group, academic department, club sports team or anywhere else that has positively shaped their Villanova experience.

By participating in this Villanova tradition, the Class of 2024 can celebrate the people, places and programs that mean the most to them, while supporting current and future students.

Making a Gift is Easy!
Visit our website where Venmo and other mobile wallet options are available at checkout!
We have special incentives to celebrate those who give at the following levels: 

  • Gifts of $10 or more: Custom Villanova Commencement pin
  • Gifts of $20.24 or more: Custom Villanova Commencement pin and Donor Reception with Father Peter during Commencement Week

Throughout the year, if you have any questions regarding your Senior Class Gift contribution(s), please contact Kat Ciliberto at

Each year, seniors can vote for a professor they would like to see deliver the last lecture of their undergraduate careers. The top five vote-getters participate in another ballot, and the professor with the most votes addresses the class at a special event on campus. The Last Lecture has quickly become a Senior Class favorite event!

Commencement Week is a series of special events and programs coordinated by Villanova University for our graduates to enjoy their last week on campus. Do not miss this great opportunity to celebrate with your classmates during Commencement Week 2024!
