1. Why did you choose Daemen?

 I chose Daemen because of the residential area and the small campus. I came from a small town so I wanted a college in a similar setting. When I visited the campus, I felt right at home. I also chose to come to Daemen for the Physician Assistant program. However, I chose Daemen over other PA programs due to the small size and the promise that I would get to develop close relationships with my professors.

2. What is your favorite spot on campus?

My favorite place on campus is the library, a.k.a. the RIC. There is always a place where you can go to focus on your school work. The variety of different areas in the library also helps you do your homework with a comfortable amount of space. Group work? No problem, there are always rooms for your group to use in order to effectively get your work done.

3. Where would you like to travel?

I would like to travel to numerous countries in Africa, Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. My life goal is to have traveled to 6 of the 7 continents.

In Daemen, I took ESL classes to improve my English. I worked at Canavan Desk and made a lot of friends over there. I participated in a Business dinner with my professors. I was invited to join a family party by my professors. During the weekends, I often take the school shuttle to the shopping mall. These experiences helped me to ease into the American-style of study, life, and business.
