Villanova in the Twenties


Main college hall

Main College Hall

This scene followed the disastrous fire of 28 January 1928.  At the time losses were estimated at two million dollars.  This building was for many years the administrative, academic, and residential center of the campus.  It was rebuilt in 1929 and named in honor of Saint Nicholas of Tolentine in 1960.  Between 1929 and 1960 it was known as Mendel Hall, which should not be confused with a later building of the same name.  Paul Monaghan designed the rebuilt structure.
