Madona's "Crossing Over" Story
"As soon as I stepped onto Villanova's campus, it was very easy to see that my journey up until college and the college experience I would have here was going to be very different from most of my peers. I had to work harder and longer to achieve the same things. What could have been a very isolating four years were made exponentially better through STOVS and CASA. Despite financial obstacles and the loss of a parent, with the support of this office I obtained my degree and I will forever be thankful."
- Madona Farag, CLAS '18
