Why did you choose Daemen College?

I liked the small class sizes and all the services available for assistance.

Why did you choose your present major?

I feel as though I have strong communication and leadership skills to help me in my business career.

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

While some of my courses are difficult, such as Computer Problem Solving, I know they will be essential to my career.

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

All of the Daemen staff are extremely willing to help and are also understanding. The fact that they’re all approachable helps me to do better in their classes.

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

I studied abroad in London in the spring of 2019 with my Literature of London class and I am planning to study abroad again in Poland this coming summer (2020) for 3 weeks to take part in a service project there that helps document locations in the Jewish community of Poland that may not be well-known due to the destruction that happened in World War 2.

What do you like best about Daemen College?

What I like best about Daemen College is that the Learning Communities are a great opportunity to bond with people right from the start in linked courses. All of the people in my learning community are already friends.

What are your plans after graduation?

After graduation, I plan to become a Human Resources Manager, since I will have a degree in Business Administration and a Specialization in Human Resources Management.
