Learning Communities

Join one of our Learning Communities and get the most out of your first year of college! Villanova's Learning Communities create innovative educational environments that integrate the academic, co-curricular, and communal aspects of the first year of college in specially themed versions of the required Augustine and Culture Seminar.

Your choice will help you quickly foster strong relationships with your classmates and professor. By also living in the same residence hall as your seminar classmates and participating in a 1-credit weekly workshop, you will integrate your academic and social experiences and participate in unique opportunities with special programming, events, and trips related to your learning community’s theme.
