Known for being a basketball powerhouse, Villanova University (located in Pennsylvania) has developed an equally impressive reputation for academics. The school’s admissions standards have continued to rise, and there is a “great support system” in place to help students achieve, between professors, advisors, tutors, research librarians, as well as a writing, math, and language learning center. Nova’s career center and internship offices focus on getting students into jobs after college, and “the opportunities outside of the classroom really complement your education.”
