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, along with recognition in Villanova’s annual Honor Roll of Donors.

Like St. Augustine, Villanova isn't perfect, but I truly believe our alma mater is committed to always improving and doing what is best for our community. As alumni and stewards of our communities, we have a responsibility to support the places that have motivated and shaped us. I hope you find ways to give back, either financially or through mentorship and your time. Let's work together to make Villanova an even better place than when we left it.

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.
