Why did you choose Daemen College?
Daemen College is known for its prestigious physical therapy program, which was the major deciding factor for me. However, the safe location and small campus played a role. Since I am from a small town, I felt the personal atmosphere of Daemen College would be most suitable for me.
Please describe your academic experience at Daemen.
Although Daemen’s physical therapy program has been the most challenging experience for me so far, I know the program will prepare me to embark on my career. The encouraging faculty and staff at Daemen help make it possible to be successful. Although times are stressful, especially this semester as a first year in the professional phase, I remind myself it will be worth it.
Please describe the impact Daemen faculty, staff, and advisors have had on you.
The faculty, staff, and advisors continually motivate me. The constant reminders of “you can do it,” “it will be worth it,” and “just think about the number of lives you can change and people you can help” continue to push me forward to success.
What do you like best about Daemen College?
I like the small atmosphere of the campus, but also being close to the Buffalo area. The campus and population of students compared to larger schools reminds me of home.
What are your plans after graduation?
I am not entirely sure of an area I want to specialize in but based on my current experience through shadowing and clinical hours, I enjoy working with geriatrics and pediatrics.
