Villanova is playing UConn tonight, and if you're not into it, you should be. Sure, there are plenty of Nova drinking games (if you're 21, of course), but Her Campus has come up with a creative way of getting in shape while watching our boys play. Here is the Villanova Basketball Workout Challenge:  Anytime.... - James Bell or Darrun Hilliard hits a 3 - 10 lunges  - The refs make a call you don't agree with - 10 jumping jacks  (If Jay Wright yells about it as well: 15 jumping jacks) - Arch is on the ground for some reason - 10 pushups  - We make an incredible dunk - 5 squats - There is an "and 1" moment - 15 second leg lifts  READ MORE

If you're like me, you save your packing until the last minute. It's not the most productive way to live life and it almost always ensures that you'll forget at least three items that range from mildly important to absolutely essential. To assuage these issues, we at HC Villanova thought that we would compile a packing list for all of your spring break needs, particularly if you're heading out of the country to somewhere warm and tropical. Electronics - Camera and charger - iPod, headphones, and charger - Phone and charger Toiletries  - Face and body wash READ MORE

Are sporting events being used as tools for neo-Nazi propaganda purposes? In the past year, anti-Semitic outbursts have been on the rise in Europe. The behavior being carried out by fans and athletes is repulsive, insulting, and absolutely horrific. However, their actions do not go unnoticed. Many are being punished and banned from participation in sporting events. Is it unfair for these athletes to be banned from sports?     READ MORE

Once the last plate of stuffing and turkey leaves the table, the Christmas season officially begins for families all across America.

5 Fun Halloween Activities

1.       Go to a haunted house! There are a multitude of awesome spooky haunts in this area that you can get to fairly easily, but my recommendation would be the Eastern State Penitentiary. You can get there by train or bus, and though it is relatively more expensive it is definitely worth it! The penitentiary shut down years ago and fell into disrepair until it was closed off and made into a museum. Al Capone served time there, and I’ve heard that the haunted house is so scary people have peed their pants… READ MORE
