Luke Waggoner

'16 VSB

Financial Services Office - Business Advisor Program Staff, EY

Favorite class at VSB and why?

I took a class on the Lincoln-Douglas debates with Dr. Colleen Sheehan my senior year that really opened my eyes to political philosophy. The class was so much fun because we had such interesting discussions in class. I learned that despite the different looks and sounds of the current political debates, they are really rehashing many of the same arguments that the framers of the U.S. Constitution debated at the Constitutional Convention and in the Federalist Papers.

Most important thing you learned?

Villanova taught me that finding and positively contributing to a community is critically important for being a good person and for living a happy life.

Favorite Villanova memory?

Winning the national championship in 2016 and watching the game with my golf teammates.
