Senior Week

UPDATE: This year's Commencement 2020 has been postponed to Saturday, August 15th 2020.

Here in the Student Activities Office, we understand how hard our graduates have worked to get to this point in their lives, and we are truly lucky to cross paths with so many amazing students. That's why it's our mission to provide our graduates with a truly memorable Senior Week as one last hurrah before their time at Daemen comes to an end.

Below is last year's Senior Week. We are currently working on the details for this year's Senior Week so please check back often for updates. Please direct any questions pertaining to the week or its events to Michael Paglicci (Coordinator for Student Transition & Campus Programming) at 716-839-8492 or via e-mail at Thank you.
