Laura - Health Care Studies

Laura Antoine

Health Care Studies

Laura had an excellent balance between her major and extracurricular activities. While completing a degree in Health Care Studies, Laura was also the President of the Student Association, a member of the Daemen College Step Team, and an Admissions Tour Guide. She knew the key to succeeding was having good time management skills.

Why did you choose Daemen?

Daemen fit my criteria for everything I wanted in a school. I wanted something small and they offered a variety of health-related programs.

Why did you choose Health Care Studies as a major?

I love medicine but there are different approaches to it. I like making sure everything runs smoothly and I like to be the eyes and ears in the background rather than being in the spotlight. Health Care Studies lets me achieve that. Furthermore, I enjoyed the variety of classes I got to take and the internship program I participated in as a senior.

Do you have any advice for prospective students?

Don’t take your major for granted. It is hard work but is very rewarding. Use the Learning Center for any class you are having trouble in. Also, keep in touch with your advisor. They help keep track of your classes, how you’re doing in them, and your future here at Daemen.

Have you had any study abroad experience?

I have studied abroad in Beijing, China. I would recommend study abroad. You get first hand experience on how another culture lives their everyday lives. I gained more knowledge and a respect for their culture. 

Favorite campus activities:

Being part of the Step Team, Student Association, giving tours and working with the Admissions staff.

"I think one of the most crucial aspects of the Daemen curriculum is the required internship. I was an accounting intern for both a private health care company and a certified public accounting firm. I was able to apply lessons learned in the classroom to real business situations. When my internships were over, each company offered me a full-time position."
