    The original Villanova families pitched in with ‘mops and
pails’ to build a safe and rewarding School, and they also did
much more. The Founding Contributors began a tradition
of faith and generosity that continues today. Donors have
given more than $4 million to support the growth of our
School. These gifts have a direct effect on the quality of the
environment in which our children learn and the number of
opportunities available to them.

           Ruffolo Family (North End Interiors)             development. We know that he learned to give
            Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto                and not just take. We believe that he and his
         Toneguzzo Families (Diromar Masonry)               classmates are a finer group of young men and
        Peter and Teresa van Schaik & Family                women because of their Villanova roots. The
                 Verrage Glass & Mirror                     challenges and obstacles were many, but in the
                      Mark Zwicker                          course of meeting and overcoming each one,
                                                            we developed many close friendships, warm
                                                            memories and the satisfaction of witnessing
                                                            and participating in the success of the founders’
                                                            dream. Villanova will always be a part of
                                                            us, and, hopefully, we will remain a part of
                                                            Villanova in years to come.

                           Villanova College is fortunate to have the support of many generous donors.

              The Wall of Faith was established to recognize families, individuals, institutions and corporations
              that believe in the School’s vision and who have been inspired to make a financial contribution to
              Villanova College. The Wall of Faith recognizes cumulative giving in support of capital projects as
              well as academic, artistic, athletic, chaplaincy and outreach programs. The extraordinary support
               of Wall of Faith donors has a direct impact on our students in providing first-class facilities and
                           supporting academic and extracurricular programs of the highest quality.

               The Wall of Faith is updated every year. Donors are permanently recognized on the Wall of Faith
                      in the School and will be recognized annually each spring in our Donor Registry.

                    Villanova College Graduates
        Villanova’s first graduating class, the Class of 2003, was made up of twelve students. They
        began student life using chairs as lockers, a church as a classroom and a parking lot as an
        athletic field. The Class of 2010 will graduate from a first-class facility that includes a state-of-
        the-art athletic centre, a full-service library and modern computer labs.

        While the School has continued to grow and evolve the most important elements of a student’s
        journey remain the same: a catholic education that engages spiritual, intellectual, physical
        and social development. Congratulations to the 424 graduates of Villanova College’s first ten

                             On a beautiful, sunny Saturday in May, the Class of 2006       Mr. Paradiso had fired up the barbeque and was cooking
                             came together to build a garden. Mrs. Viola and I were not     burgers for them. At lunch, Mr. Paradiso sat down with Mrs.

16   VC Annual Report 2010
                           VC Alumni Speak…
                           As I look back over the five years since
                           I graduated from Villanova, I realize
                           that while I may have left VC, the things
                           I learned and the experiences I had
                           definitely have not left me.

                           Villanova instilled discipline - a self-
                           discipline that helped to guide my studies
                           and with which I pushed myself to achieve.

                           Villanova forced me to challenge myself to
                           seek new opportunities and discover new
                           horizons, to take risks like moving to new
                           cities, to exploring new countries, and to
                           understand and celebrate new cultures.
                           It is also a place to which I can return and
                           call home.

                           My experience with V.O.I.C.E has helped
                           me believe - believe not only in the value
                           of persistence and determination, but
                           also in the power of small numbers of
                           people to affect big change. V.O.I.C.E
                           taught me about social responsibility
                           and encouraged me to “be the change” -
                           whether by handing out sandwiches to the
                           hungry in Toronto or by teaching orphans
                           in Tanzania.

                           The values that Villanova has instilled in
                           me and the opportunities with which I was
                           provided have helped carry me through
                           university, and will undoubtedly guide
                           me in all of my future endeavours. By
                           encouraging me to get involved in so
                           many aspects of school and society, the
                           Villanova community helped me to grow:
                           as a student, an athlete, a musician, a
                           Christian, and as a whole person. For that,
                           I can only say thank you.

When I reflect on the past 10 years at         finest post-secondary institutions at home and abroad.
Villanova College it is hard to believe
that so much time has passed and we
are getting ready to celebrate our 10th                          Ontario Universities
