Villanova welcomes its new first-year students with our Freshman Welcome Week. Freshman are matched with senior buddies who will act as guides to help them adjust to high school life (E.g. opening lockers). The week begins with freshmen meeting their new buddies and receiving fun, personalized shirts from their seniors, who also has a matching shirt. Throughout the week, senior buddies will eat lunch with their freshmen, and all buddy pairs will have opportunities to play games together like water ballon toss and three-legged race. The week finishes off with a freshman-senior barbecue at lunch, a slip-n-slide pool party for the rest of the day, and the evening's Freshman Welcome Dance, a favorite dance of all students. Freshman attend for free and become part of the Wildcat family through dancing and fun with their new friends
