I was recruited for athletics but mostly I chose it because it has a highly ranked political science program. Also, the location was nice because it was in the suburbs but highly accessible to the city of Philadelphia.
I very much enjoy the political science curriculum, but I believe that Villanova has far too extensive core requirements. Liberal arts education is a scam which makes you pay more money to take classes you do not want to take. There is so much useless core that does not contribute to anyone's education.
