On October 13, President Giordano sat down with Randy Bushover from WBEN as a guest on Bushover’s radio show, ‘Buffalo Means Business.’
The hour long show, which airs on Saturday evenings, is devoted to promoting local business and services. During Dr Giordano’s 13-minute segment, he and Bushover discussed everything Villa: from its current period of transition to his plans for the College’s future. Some of the highlights include:
- The College’s recent change in leadership provides it with the chance to get stronger, and to share more of the things we’re doing on campus and in the greater WNY community.
- Villa is committed to continuing to provide the same excellent programs & services that we always have.
- We know who we are: a small, Catholic institution that envisions itself as the premier student-centered institution in WNY, and we provide excellent academic, social and emotional support to each of our students.
- The College meets the needs of every individual student, and helps them to reach their professional, creative, and spiritual potential.
- Villa’s Physical Therapist Assistant program is the best in the area. Our outcomes prove that; our students are passing their licensing exams with flying colors and they’re getting good jobs.
- Villa’s first-year student mentorship program is emblematic of of what you get at Villa: a personal, friendly, one-on-one experience.
- Our students and graduates are part of the resurgence of downtown Buffalo, having worked on some major projects like the restoration of Hotel Lafayette and Canalside.
- We have the best faculty in Western New York.
- Villa’s long-term plan includes new programming, co-circular programs, building off our strengths, growing the Achieve Program, continuing to position ourselves as a premier student-centered institution with the intention of being a lot more visible in the community
