Greetings…From Wildcat Country.

This postcard sent from Dean M. Louise Fitzpatrick to the faculty and staff of the College of Nursing is particularly amusing as the “wildcat” mentioned on the front of the card refers to the University of Kentucky wildcats, but here Dean Fitzpatrick uses the card to suggest that even Kentucky is [Villanova] wildcat country as the basketball team was on the road to play in the championship game.
