1.  Why did you choose Daemen?

I chose Daemen because I was looking for a school that would give me a great opportunity of getting into the field that I wanted to get into. Daemen has a 100% pass rate for their physical therapy classes and it was highly praised by many of the therapists that I spoke with. Also, after stepping foot on campus and having a tour, I knew Daemen was the school for me.

2. What attracted you to Daemen?

What attracted me to Daemen was its size. I come from a small school and a small town so for that reason I wanted to go to a small college. I also love to go to the city so I wanted to be close enough that I could visit the city, but not have to deal with the busyness of the city. Daemen is a small school in a small town, but it is close enough to the city that I can visit whenever I want to.

3. What are you most proud of?

I am most proud of everything that I have gone through in my life to get where I am today. Everyone always says that hard work pays off, but I was never too sure. I now know that hard work does pay off because I have gotten to the point where I am and I am still succeeding.

"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."
