It’s a liberal arts environment, which means flexible graduation requirements that allow you to explore and graduate with a well-rounded view of the world and problem solving. The atmosphere also encourages you to interact on a daily basis with people of all different backgrounds and majors. I took writing classes with biochem majors and sociology classes with communications majors. I met students from Asia and Africa and Europe. You’re constantly exposed to different ideas and different ways of looking at things.
The course request system makes it hard to get into the classes you want and the classes you need. You have to learn how to work the system and talk professors into letting you in to their classes. Greencastle is also not a traditional college town with lots to do, but recent grant money from the state of Indiana is going toward improving the community.

The community atmosphere at Villanova is a pretty big deal. The university prides itself on giving back to the community. Villanova has a “Day of Service” every year, where thousands of students and faculty do community service projects in Philadelphia. The university also organizes a large, student-run Special Olympics festival every year. It’s also a tradition for students to travel abroad or around the US during breaks to do service or Habitat for Humanity.
I didn’t think the social life at Villanova was that great. One of the most frustrating things about Villanova is that there is no “college town” around the university. As I mentioned above, the school is in a very wealthy area, and it’s impossible for frat houses or off-campus student housing to coexist close to the university. Frat houses and off-campus student housing still exist, but their distance away from the university makes them a major hassle to get to if you don’t have a car (which you won’t until your junior year) or a ride.Would I do it again?
