Amber’s Story

Alverno Student, Amber

Transferring to Alverno helped Amber find her voice in an empowering community of women.

“In classes with men, I was less likely to raise my hand or contribute to classroom discussions,” says the Class of 2018 graduate. “When I came to Alverno, I gained the confidence to speak up.”

And speaking up will be vital to Amber’s career path – the Global Studies and International Affairs grad hopes to one day represent the United States abroad as an ambassador. She’s ready, thanks to Alverno.

“You know who you are in going to a women’s college,” she says. “It prepares you to be a stronger woman when you have to go out in the world. You can hold your own.”

Hailey’s Story

Alverno student, Hailey

Hailey was thrilled when she found out she could transfer to Alverno and complete her Nursing degree. “I wanted to come to Alverno because the staff and professors are very involved in making sure you succeed,” she says.

She also found the financial support she was looking for. “Alverno offered me a scholarship for my grades at my previous school. I felt that my hard work had paid off, and that Alverno noticed and awarded me,” she says. “With that, I knew I had the support I was looking for in a school.”

It was this support that enabled Hailey’s smooth transition. “I met a lot of new friends and created great connections with the teachers,” she says. “Through my nursing classes, I am learning skills and tools that will help me in the real world.”


Dominique’s Story

Alverno student, Dominique

Dominique started a business to pursue her passion of cooking. But her education was missing that same passion.

So she transferred to Alverno in January at the recommendation of friends who had graduated from Alverno. They had told her she would love the College’s diverse campus and community of strong women.

With one semester under her belt, Dominique continues to grow her business, Algo Dulce, and aspires to open her own café someday. Still, the entrepreneur knows that a college education will give her a solid foundation to pursue her dreams. At Alverno, she has found a diverse and inclusive environment in which she can pursue her dreams.


Amanda’s Story

Alverno sudent, Amanda

How valuable is a college internship? Just ask Amanda, a Business and Management major whose internship at BizTimes Media secured her a job offer before graduation.

All Alverno students complete at least one internship before graduation, grounded in a belief that pairing classroom discussion with real-world experience is absolutely vital. Our Career and Professional Development Center hosts job fairs and is there to guide students through the internship and employment process.

“Alverno has been preparing me to become the professional I aspire to be since the moment I transferred here,” Amanda says. “The entirety of my education has molded me into a well-rounded individual.”
