Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 Villanova on the Hill (VOH) program.

The program will take place from Monday, October 9, 2017 to Friday, October 13, 2017. By the end of the week, these students will have a clear grasp on how to forge a path toward a career in DC, and also learn from young alumni how to live and thrive in the district.
