Why did you choose Daemen College?

I choose Daemen because I wanted to stay close to home, I liked the small, intimate community Daemen provided, and Daemen offered my major/specialization I was interested in studying.

Why did you choose your present major?

I choose to major in business administration and specialize in human resource management because I took a marketing class at another college before I came to Daemen and really enjoyed it.

Please describe your academic experience at Daemen. 

My academic experience at Daemen has been challenging but has helped me grow as a student and an individual. Having a strong work ethic and a positive mindset has helped me be successful in my classes.

Do you live on campus? Please tell us about your on-campus experiences.

I lived on campus my freshman year and I'm now a Resident Assistant in Canavan Hall. When I was a freshman I dormed and really enjoyed the experience of living with other people. Since I had a positive living situation, I decided to apply for the RA position. I really enjoy being an RA and helping my residents and being there for them.

Do you have a favorite campus activity?

My favorite campus activity is to go to the basketball games with my friends.
