1. Why did you choose Daemen?

 I chose Daemen mainly due to the small, close-knit campus and class sizes. All of my previous schooling has taken place at small schools, so I have acquired a taste for small campuses and the closeness and relationships (with both teachers and classmates) they allow. Daemen has proven itself to be a great school where I have been able to become familiar with my professors and receive the indiviualized attention I need to help me strive academically.

2: What excites you about the Admissions Assistant position?

In regards to my on-campus job, I really enjoy being an Adminissions Assistant. I love the people I work for and I have also
made some of my closest friends through the students I work with. Working in Admissions has not only helped me become familiar with the campus and faculty but has also taught me valuable people and office skills.

3: I have traveled:

 I have had the opportunity to travel to the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica, both of which were through school programs. I have also traveled to Canada and will be visiting Aruba this upcoming summer.
