My Degree(s)

EdM, Higher Education Administration and Student Affairs (University at Buffalo); BS, Business Administration (SUNY Potsdam)

My Hobbies

I love live music and try to attend a few concerts every week (Buffalo and Western New York has a great music scene). I also enjoy playing guitar, collecting records, and watching the Buffalo Sabres. Recently, I've been reading the Harry Potter series for the first time (it's amazing!!!), kayaking as much as possible, and road tripping on the weekends.

My Advice

When choosing a college to attend, listen to your heart. I know, it's cheesy, but I'm a big believer that life has a funny way to guiding you to the right place. Take the time to imagine yourself at each campus you visit... "Can I see myself siting in these classrooms? Do I get along with the people here? Can I see myself getting involved with this club or volunteering for this event?" If you are excited to answer those questions about a specific college or university, it's the right place for you!

My Degree(s)

Elementary Education & MBA (D'Youville College)

My Hobbies

I play Scrabble with my husband every evening to keep our brains sharp! I love bird watching and have several feeders within view of my dining room window. We are also auction junkies and sell our extras on Craigslist or eBay. My favorite thing is to visit with my granddaughter, who is growing up so fast! I also love learning and actually miss doing my homework and research now that I've completed my degree!

What I Love about D'Youville

I graduated from D'Youville TWICE and love many things about the school. Number One is the great education I received from the professors I encountered as a student here in the 70's and again while earning my MBA. They know who you are and care about your success. The location is great to get to so many things to do in Buffalo. We are minutes from Niagara Falls, malls, fabulous beaches, skiing, museums, parks, the Buffalo Zoo, the theatre district, Elmwood Village, professional sports arenas, fabulous festivals and so much more!

My Advice

START EARLY! Being a transfer student is similar to being a senior in high school. Don't wait until the last minute. Look at several schools to find out where YOU fit. Utilize the transfer counselors at your current college AND your future college. They are valuable resources available to keep you on track with class choices. Campus visits, Facebook, college websites and information links as well as old fashioned phone calls are all there to help you decipher the process and help you narrow down your choices!

Warm, comfortable campus; caring students; faculty and staff. Surrounded by beautiful architecture in the City of Buffalo and only blocks away from Lake Erie and the Niagara River.

Don't shy away from visiting private colleges because of tuition without checking into scholarship and financial aid information first. For nursing students – go for your bachelor of science in nursing right away – check out our direct entry program with 7 out of 8 nursing semesters!

My Hobbies

Reading, exercising and spending quality time with my cats.

What I Love about D'Youville

I love the location of the campus! Even though I grew up in WNY, I have become much more familiar with the downtown Buffalo area and all of the unique things to do while working at D'Youville. There is something fun to do for every season!

My Advice

Find a field that you are interested in and passionate about and explore what career opportunities that can lead to! There are so many careers that you probably haven't heard of or been exposed to before. Take classes from all different fields to figure out what you truly enjoy doing.

My Hobbies

Reading, listening to music, and cooking complex family dinners with my husband.

What I Love about D'Youville

I love the students here. I've watched our student ambassadors become amazing young professionals full of enthusiasm and motivation, and it never gets old.

My Advice

Talk to current students at every institution you visit and ask questions about their individual experiences. Try sitting in the dining hall or student union and start observing the students around you. If they look like they're enjoying themselves, and you feel completely comfortable hanging around, chances are the school is worth some further investigation.
