1. What excites you about this Tour Guide position?

What excites me the most about the Tour Guide position is being able to help perspective students with the questions that they have about Daemen College, and college as a whole. I am excited to show parents and students what Daemen has to offer, if they make Daemen their college.

2. What do you hope to accomplish at the end of a tour?

At the end of a tour what I hope to accomplish is knowing that I have answered all the questions that both parents and students have about Daemen College.

3. What's the best thing about Daemen?

Honestly, besides the friends and people I have met at Daemen, one of the best things about Daemen College is its class size.  I love that Daemen class sizes are small, compared to other colleges and universities. I really do feel that I receive the one on one attention with the professors.

4. Countries I have visited:
Guyana and Nicaragua.

"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."
