Almost no people makes for uncomfortable experienc
Posted Sep 5, 2016
My daughter and I stayed recently at the conference center as part of our college visit tour over the holiday weekend. This modestly-appointed facility is located near (though not on) the Villanova campus, it's very clean, and set in a beautiful woodland environment. From the minute we walked in, however, we had a sense of eeriness, since there were almost no people there...few guests, maybe only 3-4 staff people were seen. We had this sense that we were there all alone, and that felt really uncomfortable for us. I should also note that there was nothing specific that I can point to about safety or questionable behavior of the staff. This is purely gut-level discomfort.
It's unfortunate, because despite the positives, we were glad to be staying only one night.
We understand that management of the facility is changing to Villanova itself, rather than the current vendor, and maybe that will make a difference. We hope so, especially if my daughter ends up going to Villanova. We would want to support the conference center when we visit Villanova.
