Department of Art Alumni
Alfiya Menconi '08
Alfiya Menconi graduated with a BA in Art, majoring in Illustration and Graphic Design. She attended the State Pedagogical Institute in Naberezhnye Chelny for her first 3 years of college, where she received a full 5-year scholarship for fine arts. She then transferred to WCSU, where she just completed another 2.5 years. Alfiya graduated with 170 credits.....but has a double major of Illustration and Graphic Design.
Her 5 year college program in Russia, would have given her a teaching certificate as well to be able to teach Art in high school. So it was really like going to school for teaching with a concentration in fine arts to be able to teach fine arts and be a fine arts high school teacher.
Alfiya always wanted to go into Graphic Design, so she used many of her transfer credits for her Illustration Major at WCSU and then took all the required courses for the Graphic Design major.
