Riley Ellipse

The Riley Ellipse is a great place to throw down a blanket, grab a book and enjoy a beautiful afternoon. Constructed in 2012, the ellipse is located between Kennedy, Corr and Dougherty Halls, and the Connelly Center at the core of Villanova’s Main Campus. It is anchored by an abstract sculpture officially entitled The Awakening, but affectionately known as “the Oreo,” which marks the center of student activity.
