Welcome to student life at Daemen College! An important part of your college experience happens outside of the classroom, and we hope you get involved in the different student organizations and the variety of activities that Daemen offers. We are a small school with a world of opportunities for you to take advantage of. Be open to new experiences and embrace the diversity of the college. You will be exposed to different ideas, different kinds of music, art, food, and activities. Try new things and challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone. This is what college life is all about! We have a casual office — stop by with any questions you have, or just to say “hi”. We are always happy to see you.

Sincerely, Chris Malik,

Director of Student Activities

Student Activities Office

The Student Activities Office is responsible for the authorization and coordination of student organization sponsored programming held on campus. The office also coordinates the student use of Wick Campus Center with the Conference Office, which authorizes facility use by non-student groups.

Recognized student organizations are permitted to reserve rooms in Wick for meetings and activities.  Requests for use of a room can be made to the Director of Student Activities, whose office is located in Wick Center.   A computerized Event Management System (EMS) is used for all buildings on campus, tracking every meeting, event, and use of a room on a web-based calendar. This searchable calendar is viewable to all as a link off your MyDaemen page on the Daemen College website.

The Director of Student Activities acts as moderator to the Student Association, can advise student organizations in all aspects of planning and programming, act as a liaison between student organizations and other campus offices, and can help to publicize events through the MyDaemen calendar on the Daemen website.

Office Mission Statement

The Student Activities Office advises and assists students with the planning and implementation of a variety of activities on campus. In doing so, we seek to involve students in leadership development through their active participation in all phases of activities programming. This philosophy recognizes that student involvement in activities is an important key to creating learning opportunities which complement the academic experience.

Another goal of the Student Activities Office is to promote a variety of experiences in the college’s overall programming, and to embrace diversity in its many manifestations, including music, food, art, cultural and intellectual interests, and respect for persons’ individual differences.

This Mission of the Student Activities Office aligns itself with the Mission of the College to prepare students for life and leadership in a complex world, to be active participants in their own education, and to enrich their lives by embracing diversity while developing a global perspective of our world.
