With all of the hype surrounding Villanova right now, why not spotlight this great university?

Of course sports are a big part of campus life at 'Nova, but with over 260 student organizations, an active Greek contingent and top academics, this university is known for so much more. And did you know Villanovans log more than 220,000 hours of local and global community service each year? Villanova’s Augustinian Catholic intellectual tradition challenges students to use their knowledge, skills and compassion to better the world, and they're doing a good job accomplishing just that.

Located just 12 miles north of Philadelphia, the school is the oldest Catholic university in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. And bonus, 'Nova is ranked #1 in the Regional Universities (North) category of the US News Best Colleges Rankings this year.

And speaking of Villanova, we found this article really interesting, which talks about how it will likely be harder to be accepted as a student at the university now that they're NCAA champions. So if you're thinking that 'Nova is the perfect fit for you, continue working hard in preparation for college app time!
