Meet Alexis 

I knew Villa Maria College was a good fit for me as soon as I learned of the small class sizes and passionate professors who shared their real-life experiences in the design industry during class. With the help of the admissions team, transferring to Villa Maria was easy. They helped me check all the boxes, navigate the entire transfer admissions process, answered all my questions, and were always personable. Although I am not from Buffalo, I feel at home at Villa Maria and I know I am heading down a successful path. — Alexis Carrington, ’22, Interior Designer at Trautman & Associates

There’s a lot of pressure to know what’s next. We’re here to say, it’s OK if you’re still figuring it out. In fact, it’s great. Villa is a place where that kind of continual discovery is prized. Because going to college isn’t about having it all figured it out. It’s about inventing who you’re going to become. You’ll see.
