BOLD Enrichment

Variety is the spice of life, making our summer Enrichment Programs at Villanova University a favorite for students who want to try a few different things! Do what you love. Try something new. Or do both! Enrichment is perfect for the athlete who loves to paint, the gamer who shoots short films, and the entrepreneur who sketches red carpet fashion designs. Create your perfect summer schedule by choosing Major and Elective courses spanning the arts, esports, business, science, fashion, engineering and so much more! We offer all of these choices not only because they’re fun, but because trying new things is key to uncovering passion and what summer is all about.
