“The academic environment at Daemen is student friendly while offering intense teaching and training. The education here has prepared me for my clinical internships in Physical Therapy; I have improved my spoken English and have received a profound knowledge in patient examination, evaluation, treatment, and prognosis upon actual clinical internships.

“Daemen has given me the opportunity to widen my perspective in so many ways. When I first arrived on campus, I was nervous to begin my studies. However, my fear vanished once I received support from faculty and staff at Daemen and I started to feel at home. My experience has been quite enriching.

The professors at Daemen are very friendly, helpful, and most of all, approachable. They are always available for any questions or concerns that may come up, and if they do not have time, they will make the time to help. I remember one instance where I had to do a marketing project and I did not understand it. I went to my professor about it and he met with me for a couple hours to go over the entire project. He helped me tremendously.
