10 Signs You Are A Villanova Wildcat

I grew up in Marlboro New Jersey, a small town in central Jersey. I was very much a Jersey girl. However, coming home over breaks, people have commented on how my mannerisms have changed since I left. I mean, I’ve transformed into a wildcat.

1. Confessions by Saint Augustine? I have it memorized

We all had to read it, but not just read it. We went over that book for weeks, the intent of every single paragraph indent was understood.


We got to a Catholic school, which teaches the Augustinian principles of Caritas, Unitas, Veritas. We take the worship of God very seriously, almost as seriously as our worship of Jay Wright. Every basketball game and in any dorm there is a picture of Jay Wright somewhere there. The name comes out of your mouth at least once a day.

3. Pledge Rides, Yeah I have the number

Villanofun? I think not. You wanna go to Beta or Phi Sig? I mean Pi Kapp is having something too, I can text and see if I can get a ride.

Oh, I got a text back, we have a 10:00 ride.

Every weekend restart and repeat.

4. Cova? Spit? Conn?

Hands down Spit is the best dining hall on campus, but nothing beats a Cova burrito bowl. But, Conn chicken fingers just do not compare. As long as we are not eating at Pit, everything will be okay.


Every single day, Villanova’s campus is flooded with the blue and the white (and vineyard vines). We represent our school and we do it proudly. Every basketball game is crowded with people dressed from head to toe in the blue and white.

6. Do you like this Vineyard Vines shirt better or this Patagonia?

Walking around campus, those are about the only shirts you see. Honestly, I don’t know why they don’t sponsor Villanova.

7. It is three weeks into the semester, how did I run out of points?

Whether it is sparket, holy grounds,or second story, points go by incredibly fast. But, there are no regrets on holy grounds iced coffee.

8. Villa(hoe)vas/ Villa(bro)vas

Check every student’s social media, it will be a caption at least twice.

9. 4th-floor Tolentine? I’d rather cut off my finger

Climbing up the stairs of Tolentine leaves you with no breathe and lingering soreness in your quads. You either take a minute outside the classroom to catch your breath or you walk into class about to pass out from lack of oxygen.

10. Final Four? Eh, no big deal

We live, eat, and breathe basketball. It is a school of hard-core fans for our basketball team. Win or lose we are wildcats. V for Villanova and V for Victory.

We bleed blue and white. Let's go Cats!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
