Villa is Home
Accepted Students Day is your first opportunity to get a real taste of the inclusive, supportive community Villa Maria prides itself on being. It’s your first chance to get to know your future classmates and faculty and it gives you the chance to see who you can become and what you can accomplish at Villa.
This year we can’t have you on campus and, to be honest, we’re really bummed about it. So, we’re bringing Accepted Student Day to you! On this page you’ll find a handful of videos from current students, faculty and staff — all the people who call Villa home and would have excitedly welcomed you to campus. Take a look, and see for yourself how the Villa community has helped so many people realize their full potential and become the very best versions of themselves.
Your Virtual Experience Begins Here!
Everyone start here! Watch all four videos.
DJ Schier welcomes you to Virtual Accepted Student Day and explains what you can expect. The last three videos in this section are a welcome message from President Giordano, some info on confirming your acceptance from the Office of Admissions and important information about paying for college from Office of Financial Aid. When you’re done, head to section two.
