10 Things I Cannot WAIT To Do At Villanova

Yes, summer's ending, and while, for those still living at home, that only means one thing- SCHOOL. However, for college students returning back to campus, all they can think about is going home for the school year. As a Villanova student, here's what I can't wait for:

1. Tailgating.

Although you feel insanely dead at the end of the day, tailgates for sports (mainly basketball- GO CATS) are one of the most entertaining days of any sports season!

2. Consuming your weight in coffee at Holy Grounds.

Holy Grounds is the chain coffee shop all around Villanova. As well as having really good drinks and muffins, they also have amazing puns for all of their food and drinks!

3. Walking past the Church.

Whether you're religious or not, the church is by far the most beautiful structure on campus, and Villanova is famous for it. People wait years to get married there!

4. Eating at Connelly and Cafe Nova.

The dining halls aren't the worst, but they're not the best. Everyone's mouth is savoring for Conn grilled cheese/chicken fingers, no matter how unhealthy it is!

5. Hanging out at the Oreo.

During the spring semester, everyone knew when summer was coming when people started crawling out of their dorms to hang out on the quad and laying on the Oreo. One of the best feelings I've had all year was baking in the sun after class without a care in the world- I even forgot about finals!

6. Going to Philadelphia.

My friends and I went into Philadelphia at 3:00 AM twice during the school year, and let me tell you, they were some of the best nights of my life. However, going into Philly during the daytime is still pretty awesome, too. There's tons of stores to shop, museums to learn, and parks to walk around.

7. Having classes with my friends.

Having classes with your friends makes it go so much faster. My friends and I had Spanish together first semester and we all became so incredibly close because of it.

8. Attending club meetings.

Since your time is your own, you get to choose how many clubs you join and how often you go. I joined a lot of social justice clubs over the year and I love seeing all my activist friends when they attend!

9. Celebrating basketball season.

Obviously, going to Villanova, basketball is a BIG deal. Basketball season is our university's own extended Christmas!

10. Seeing my friends.

Living in Florida, I have not seen my friends all summer. Some of them live as far away as California! I cannot wait to squeeze each and every one of my friends when we get back.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
