The student body is unparalleled in its level of school spirit and unity, which is fostered by each member of Villanova's faculty and staff. The school's very motto, Unitas (Unity), Veritas (Truth), Caritas (Love), is demonstrated by staff and students everyday. I think it is hard to describe the "typical" Villanova student, as the student body is diverse in its interests and passions; however, academic fortitude and a passion for helping and supporting others are values shared and respected by other students. Most students at Villanova come from an upper-middle class background, with many students being of Italian heritage. Never once in my six years at Villanova did I witness a student being treated differently on the basis of an ethnic or socio-economic difference.
