Our Team

Amanda Alioto

Admission Counselor  

As a double bison graduate from Nichols college, I am able to connect with families and share my own experiences to inspire others to become a bison! Nichols college has been my home for the last five years and I want to share what we have to offer to our students. “The Hill” is a very special place for young adults to develop into industry professionals. I am excited to be apart of the college process for so many families in the near future.

Dominic Coppola

As a Graduate Assistant for Nichols College, I am able to stay a part of the Nichols Community while being able to connect with students and families across New England. I aspire to be the best person I can be and help everyone pursue the education they deserve here on “The Hill”. Nichols College has so much to offer to every student, with strong experiential learning opportunities around every corner. Nichols College has been my home for five years and I am beyond thankful for every opportunity. I am ready to help make Nichols College the new home for the next wave of future Bison!
