Villanova University


Campus Overview
While most people outside the Delaware Valley associate Villanova with basketball, the university has plenty more accolades to its name. The campus may be too close to home for some Main Line students, but its outstanding academic opportunities should not be overlooked. The School of Business undergraduate program is nationally acclaimed, ranked No. 7 in the United States by Businessweek in 2011. For aspiring engineers, Villanova is ranked No. 10 by U.S. News & World Report among undergraduate programs where no doctorate is offered. Meanwhile, Villanova proudly cele-brates its founding as a Roman Catholic Augustinian university. The Campus Ministry is prominent, and the Augustine and Culture Villanova Seminar is a core curriculum requirement for all students.
