1. Why did you choose Daemen?

I chose Daemen for its small size and family-like feel. While searching for colleges I really wanted to find a school where I would not just be a number and where the faculty would know me. I found that at Daemen. Everyone on campus is extremely welcoming and willing to help you out in any way possible. This close-knit community feels really swayed my way towards choosing Daemen and is why I am here today.

2. What is unique about your major?

I major in biochemistry at Daemen. It is very unique because it is a relatively small program for the college. The size really allows the professors to push you to your highest potential. The one on one interaction between the student and professor really makes the program unique. The faculty are so interested in seeing you succeed they will do the best they can to help you. What I love the most about it is the fact that the professors will allow you to research with them even if you're not an upper classman.

3. What advice would you give to a prospective student?

Take all the opportunities you are offered and really get involved on campus. Being a part of Daemen is extremely fun and really helps you develop as an individual.

4. Places I want to travel:

Australia, Thailand, somewhere in South America and Africa

"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."
