President's Report Stories
Transformation is at the heart of the Villanova experience. In this year's President's Report, we've highlighted just a few student journeys that embody what that transformation looks like at a personal level.
As Villanova President the Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, PhD, '75, said in his opening letter, "Although we cannot capture the experiences of 10,000 students and 123,000 alumni in one publication, each of these stories resounds with the people and the foundational elements that make the Villanova experience so distinctive—and one that profoundly changes hearts and minds."
See Villanova through the eyes of 11 students who demonstrate the excellence of our academic programming at all levels—undergraduate, adult and online learning, graduate, doctoral and law.
