We took another stroll around Villanova's campus today. The photo above shows one of the most heavily traveled parts of campus when school is in session. Normally at this time of the year, there would be hundreds of students walking on the paths, perhaps a few students tossing a football or frisbee back and forth, … Continue reading Where Is Everyone?
