Young Alumni Circle

Group of young alumni gather outside during reunion weekend

The Young Alumni Circle offers undergraduates of the past 10 years a way to give back through incremental levels of support each fiscal year. Members help raise the bar for academics, athletics and student life, making the Villanova experience ever more valuable and meaningful.

As a part of this annual giving society, members receive special invitations to exclusive events, such as the Homecoming President’s Reception, Father Peter’s Christmas Party, young alumni game watches and more, along with recognition in Villanova’s annual Honor Roll of Donors.

I'm a member of the Young Alumni Circle because...

Villanova truly became my second home during my four undergraduate years, and my classmates, Villanova faculty and staff became like family. They are the reason I am now a nurse and connected to my job in a pediatric ICU. I consider it an honor and privilege to be able to give back my Villanova family!

I'm a member of the Young Alumni Circle because...

Villanova gave me the opportunity to sharpen my skills both in and out of the classroom. Whether it was working alongside faculty, volunteering with the Alumni Association, or just studying in the library, I have been able to take what I learned and apply it at home and abroad. It is a privilege to give to Villanova to provide students with that same opportunity to acquire essential skills for the future.
