Focus on Success @ Cheyney University.


  “I am currently enrolled at Villanova University in the Masters of Sustainable Engineering program. I graduated from Cheyney University, Pennsylvania with a Bachelors Degree in General Science. With all of my experiences, and sincere passion for mentoring and being a positive male role model, I was more than excited when I received the offer to work in the Center for Multicultural Affairs as a Graduate Assistant at Villanova. I will be working hard and diligently with my team to assure that our students have the best first year experience that they could imagine. I am looking forward to impacting lives and starting our freshmen off on the path to success.”   Dantawn Nicholson, Graduate Assistant at Villanova University
