Events at Villa
Individual Visit with Admissions
See for yourself by scheduling a personal tour of Villa Maria College. You’ll meet one-on-one with an admissions representative, tour campus and get a feel for what life is like as a Villa Viking.
Villa Maria College resumed in-person visits as of June 8, 2020. The College will be practicing physical distancing and will have PPE on-hand for all visitors.
Schedule a Virtual Visit
COVID has changing the way we visit your school, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still meet. Virtual Admissions Visits are now an option for high school students and college transfers who want to learn more about the College without physically coming to campus. Virtual Visits will have the same personal touch as in-person visits. You and an admissions counselor will chat about your program(s) of interest, take a virtual campus tour, begin your application, and answer any additional questions you may have.
Do you prefer an in-person visit? Us too! We are happy to offer in-person campus visits in addition to our virtual option! See above to schedule an in-person visit. Physical distancing and facial coverings are required.
New Student Orientation
Welcome to Villa Maria College! New Student Orientation is the official beginning to your Viking Voyage. This year New Student Orientation is being held virtually for the safety of all. Although different, the virtual version of New Student Orientation still serves as an introduction to life as college student and as a Villa Viking. New Student Orientation was created by Villa’s Office of Student Life, and it walks you through a series of modules that make sure you are prepared to start classes in January. Click here for the schedule of events.
Orientation will officially open on December 7th through the College’s D2L platform and can be completed at your own pace.
Achieve Open House
Visit Villa Maria College on Saturday, March 20th to learn more about the Achieve Program for Students with Learning Differences. Attend virtually or in-person! Founded in 2015, the Achieve Program was designed to help high school students with learning differences successfully transition from high school to college, thrive in college and prepare for life after graduation. Upon entering the program, each student is assessed and an individualized plan is put in place to help support each student as they work to earn their degree.

Spring Open House
Going to college isn’t about having it all figured out. It’s about figuring it out. It’s about inventing who you’re going to become.

At this year’s Spring Open House, we will have social distancing guidelines in place for the safety of all. Register ahead of time to choose a time slot for your visit.
Spring Open House will take place on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. Learn how Villa Maria’s 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio and studio-based classrooms will help you to take your talent further! We will be practicing social distancing and will have PPE on-hand for all visitors.
Graphic Design Preview Night
Graphic designers belong at Villa!
Why? Because our students learn from experienced, award-winning faculty. They graduate career ready, with a strong portfolio, having completed an internship, typically with notable accolades of their own. In fact, Villa Maria’s graphic design students repeatedly win ADDYs, scholarship competitions, portfolio reviews, and more.
Graphic Design preview night will take place virtually on three separate occasions: February 15th at 4:00 PM, March 3rd at 7:00 PM, and March 22nd at 7:00 PM.
