St. Thomas of Villanova Celebration

Each fall, the Villanova community begins the academic year with a celebration honoring St. Thomas of Villanova, the 16th-century Augustinian bishop of Valencia, Spain, and patron of the University. This tradition continues in 2018 with six days of special events.
