As a recent graduate of Villa Maria College, I have come to enjoy all of the connections I made as a student. A lot of these people I work with today ! The community is very supportive and will go out of their way to assist you with anything. When I applied for my Graduate programs my previous faculty have given me tips and incite to their experiences on how they made it through their degrees If anyone is reading this and is considering a degree at this college I highly recommend!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Villa Maria College truly is an amazing college. The teachers are amazing, helpful, and fun! The animation program consists of useful classes such as: pre production, introduction to animation, and so on. I will be honest, when I first started, I was afraid I made the wrong choice of going to art school. Now as the school year is coming to a close, I realized I was wrong. Everyone made me feel welcome and the teachers helped build my confidence. Villa Maria is my second home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Villa Maria College is the best school for the arts in the Greater Buffalo area. This has been confirmed by many current college students I know who are going into my or similar fields. There are so many transfer students that claim Villa offers so much more than UB, NU, or even Fredonia can't. Villa Maria offers community and family. Teachers, peers, and administrators who are looking to help you succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that this college sometimes feels like a high school. Besides that feel, the faculty helps make this college feel like home. The Student Life Director puts on so many different types of events in order to get every student involved. This is one big family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Villa Maria College is a beautiful campus in an older yet well-maintained building, extremely helpful and nice personnel (including the nuns), degree-specific courses with minimal electives to cut down on BS, and as there is no dorming the price of tuition is half of what other colleges with the same premises cost. There is nearby student-housing equipped with free shuttling, if you must live nearby.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that this school is a place that feels like home. Due to the small classroom sizes there is a great deal of individual attention, and there are activities to get a large variety of students involved. Each program in this college is generally an art style program; photography, music, graphic design. We share all of our work in our school gallery which our students take pride in.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for the arts. It is actually considered an arts college with the exception of its physical therapy assistant degree. I actually decided to attend Villa Maria College because it did not require me to take multiple courses that had nothing to do with my major, fashion design. I did not want to focus on science and math courses that would not apply to my future work. I was grateful that the school caters to those who excel in the area of creativity and design.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and rethink how to transition into the world of higher education I would do two things differently. First, I would talk to students who attended Villa Maria College and had to live off campus to see if they liked this living arrangement. If I had done this I might have found out how hard it is to make friends when not living on the campus. Secondly, I would have done more research on colleges with my major to see if there were other options. I chose Buffalo because it was close to where I live and I disregarded schools in other states like Ohio. If I had been more open to other states I believe I might have found Kent State University when I was first looking. My advice to myself would have been to ask more questions of students who are currently attending the college and be more willing to look outside of New York state because it's more important to live further away but find the best college for you.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school was that it does not have any campus living. I was required to obtain my own living environment, although they did provide me guidance with finding an apartment complex specific for college students. Because of this it was really hard to make friends on campus since we all lived off campus. I was really craving a typical college experience months into my freshman year so I have purued transferring to Kent State University in Ohio where I can live on campus, make more friends, and buy a food plan for 2014-2015!
