Unitas Pre-Orientation Weekend

Friday, July 31, 2020 - Saturday, August 1, 2020

— Registration for Class 2024 to be announced. —


To help battle COVID-19 together through social distancing, all Unitas Pre-Orientation Weekend activities will be conducted virtually. We will strive to make this a fun-filled, educational weekend that is designed to help new students transition to college. Activities range from workshops to interactive games to ice breakers to real talk sessions with current and incoming Villanova students who will be participating from across the country. Our mission is to help new members of the community become better acclimated and, ideally, future leaders here at Villanova. This weekend has become a highly anticipated weekend for incoming students and returning upperclassmen alike. It serves as the beginning of long friendships and smooth transitions for all incoming students.

Our Mission:

  • To develop a positive sense of self.
  • To develop the attitude and skills to be a successful college student.
  • To be able to cope with developmental changes over the college years.
  • To understand the impact of culture (family upbringing, race, ethnicity, gender, family income, community, religion, body type, mental or physical differences, sexual orientation, geographic location, age, and other social identifiers) on the individuals perceptions and values.
  • To develop a sense of social ethics and responsibility.
  • To create a network of social support in the Villanova Community. This network includes students, faculty, and staff.
