Why did you choose Daemen College?

The PT program is great and I did some observation hours back home with graduates from Daemen and they highly recommended it.

Why did you choose your present major?

I took an Anatomy and Physiology class in high school and it sparked my initial interest in the field. Then I did some observation hours which really solidified my love for this major.

Please describe your academic experience at Daemen College. (Ex: It is challenging, but I know it will prepare me for my career..etc)

It is definitely more challenging than my last school, but I’m excited to use the skills I’m learning here out in the field someday.

Please describe the impact Daemen faculty, staff and advisors have had on you.

Daemen’s faculty, staff, and advisors have been awesome at helping me transition into this new part of my life. Everyone has been very kind and friendly, and they’ve made me feel very welcomed!

What do you like best about Daemen College?

The location! It’s secluded in a nice quiet little town, but isn’t too far away from all the excitement in the big city of Buffalo.

Please describe any internship, study abroad, service learning or academic experience? (For example, Academic Festival, Research Think Tank, etc.)

I completed my first clinical internship in a hospital back home this summer. It was fun and exciting to partake in the care of people from my community and to have the opportunity to grow as a practitioner.

What are your plans after graduation?

I still have two years until officially graduating, but when I am done I would like to try and be a traveling PT so I can see more of what this country has to offer.

What clubs or organizations have you been a part of here at Daemen College? What kinds of things do they do?

In the Fall of 2018, a few friends and I started the Outdoor Adventure Club here at Daemen. So far we have gone on hiking trips in Letchworth State Park, Devils Hole and Whirlpool, and Allegany State Park. This semester we are planning a skiing trip with UBs outdoor adventure club and many other hiking excursions.
