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.

What is UNITAS?

UNITAS Weekend is a virtual, 2-day pre-orientation weekend designed to better prepare Villanova University's incoming freshmen class for orientation and the upcoming school year. While participating in our event, you will get the chance to meet and hear from other Villanova freshmen, upperclassmen, faculty, staff, and guest speakers. You will get the opportunity to learn more about Villanova's academic, athletic, medical, professional, and social resources. You will also be able to ask questions pertaining to student life on Villanova's campus, the dining and residence halls, greek life, clubs and sports, basketball games, and so much more! 

Does it cost anything?

Nope, it is free!


Do I need to bring anything?

All we ask is that you have a functioning computer and/or cell phone with an operating camera for the duration of the event. We will primarily be using the video conferencing application, ZOOM.

**ZOOM links will be sent out prior to the start of the event**


Where do I sign up for this amazing opportunity?

Submit a UNITAS Registration Form.

**Just as a reminder, the questions that are included in this year's form are the same as last year's (UNITAS was run on campus in previous years, including the summer of 2019). We understand that there may be a lot of questions, however they have been included in the hopes that an on-campus UNITAS event may happen in the future. As of now, the program will be run completely online**
