8 Amazing Things About Villanova In Springtime

I love Villanova at all times of the year, but there's something special about springtime. Everyone is happy and full of energy again, and the campus just seems more alive. Here are 8 of my favorite things about being a college student at Villanova after spring break.

Daylight and golden hour have returned.

It's no longer dark at 5:30 pm, so halfway through that 4 pm class, you don't want to fall asleep.

Frisbees and volleyballs have come out of hibernation

Walking through campus, there are kids playing sports on any patch of grass available. The Ellipse, Sheehan beach, South Campus volleyball courts, the grassy knoll, you name it.

Lunchtime is like happy hour.

Sitting outside at Cova or Conn is the best if you can find an open table or bench. There are always people walking around, and there's always a table or two around the Oreo fundraising for something. Everyone says hi to everyone, and you are guaranteed to see half the people you know.

Candidate's Day

I dare to say that Candidate's Day is one of the best days at Villanova. Every on-campus club and organization has a table around the Ellipse for an activities fair, music is playing, and everyone is outside having fun. It's like a giant Nova-themed party. No school has more school spirit than we do.

Music. Everywhere.

On a nice spring day, you are guaranteed to hear music coming from every direction outside. Everyone has a speaker blaring upbeat songs, and campus feels like something out of a movie.

Warm weather season = gelato season

Cova serves the best gelato, and the sunshine and high temps make it that much better. Plus, you don't feel like you're going to freeze to your chair after you eat it.

Hammocking

It seems like every person on campus owns a hammock once those 60-70 degree weather days hit. They pop up on campus and it seems like any trees next to each other have at least one hammock hanging from them.

Just the greenery.

Everything finally comes back to life! Springtime really is when I appreciate how much work the landscaping team puts into campus. From the flowers outside the Spit to the plants on either side of the walkway to the church from the bridge, there's suddenly so many colors.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
