Why did you choose Daemen College?

I love the small school atmosphere. I went to a bigger college before transferring to Daemen and I could tell it wasn’t for me. Every staff member that I’ve needed to get in contact with has been super accessible and helpful, and it means a lot that I have so many resources to aid in my success.

Why did you choose your present major? 

I want to be involved in the sports community but also have a career that challenges me and physical therapy is the perfect fit.

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

The program is very intense but I know I’m getting the most out of my education here. All of the professors are extremely helpful not only with the material given but most professors give additional resources for me to expand my knowledge even further which I like a lot. 

What do you like best about Daemen College? 

My favorite thing about Daemen is the family atmosphere.  Everyone knows everybody and they’re very welcoming and helpful. It’s also very close to home and I am able to commute. 

What are your plans after graduation? 

My dream is to move to Massachusetts and work as a Physical Therapist for the Boston Bruins.

What is your favorite campus hangout? Why?

My favorite campus hangout so far is the den.  Partially because of the food, and because it has such a relaxed environment to hang out and do work.
