1: Why did I choose Daemen? 

I chose Daemen because I was looking for a school that was far away from home, but also comfortable enough that I can make it a home. Daemen is a small campus and its easy to get involved and get to know the Daemen community. I think these are important qualities in a campus. It makes me feel welcomed and safe. It also has a great Childhood/Special Education program that I found unique compared to the other colleges I applied to. 

2: What advice would I give to prospective students?

Don't let college intimidate you. Come to college with an open mind, try new things, and to meet new people. It's a new beginning to be the person you want to be. Also, get involved. College is what you make of it. Opportunities don't just come to you, you have to find them. 

3: Favorite food:

"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."
