VISAS’s mission is to build and foster lifelong networks while inspiring a legacy of service within the Villanova International Student Alumni community.
Welcome to the Villanova International Student Alumni Society’s (VISAS) homepage. It has been some time since we’ve talked. Time goes by quickly and each year we are fortunate to meet and know people from around the globe. The International Student Office and the Villanova Alumni Association have collaborated to form our very own international alumni group.You are a graduate of a very special University and we hope you’ll consider staying in touch with the friends you made at Villanova through VISAS. The mission of VISAS is three fold: 1) To create a global network of our graduates to help keep contact with our international alums. 2) To inform and engage our alumni on current news and activities both on campus and among the alumni themselves. 3) To create and support sponsored service projects around the globe that grow out of our alumni network.
Last spring we held our first annual Alumni reception. We are planning several events in the next year and we hope you’ll consider reconnecting with us and possibly, coming back to campus for a visit. In addition we hope you will visit our webpage and keep us informed about what you are doing these days. We will be recognizing distinguished alums regularly through this site and through special events. We hope you are excited and motivated to rekindle your relationship with the International Office at Villanova through VISAS
The ISO and VISAS support a number of student and alumni driven service projects. Our most recent effort took place last summer in Kenya. Our Alumni Association President, Grace Kinda, traveled to her home village where she has focused on providing solar lamps for the residents there. Grace’s visit was the first of many steps to bring technology solutions to a problem. The project received financial backing from our office and from VISAS. We hope that this project will continue to grow and help the people in Kenya. We are looking to you for ideas and projects that are close to you heart. We will help with fundraising, technical and emotional support, and we will publicize your efforts. Our vision is that our alums create life changing events around the world.
