    -Do not let the price of Villanova's tuition scare you from applying. If you have parents who are financially struggling and you want to apply to Villanova, go ahead because Villanova provides many grants included with your financial aid for your education. And every cent of your tuition goes towards not only your classes but great resources like the Fitness Center and tutoring. -Do not let Senioritis from High School follow to to college and impact your academics. College is completely different from high school so expect to do some hard work. Studying, time management and effort is important in college, especially Villanova. -Although Villanova has many Caucasian students on campus, they have students of many different races from Asians to African American students and Hispanics, who all have strong bonds with each other, like family.

    Don't let the tuition cost scare you - apply for financial aid and scholarships. Be sure to take a campus tour because the entire campus can be easily toured in an hour or less, but the buildings and newly renovated areas are beautiful.
