After 24 hours of campaigning, Villanovans can celebrate another successful 1842 Day. By surpassing the goal of 6,000 donors, Villanova’s LEVEL program and the Office of Disability Services will receive an additional gift of $1.5 Million.

Congratulations to everyone involved, especially those who were able to make this possible with donations, contributions, and hard work. We say this a lot around here but it’s always appropriate: “It’s a great day to be a Wildcat!”
