Why did you choose Daemen University?

I chose to attend Daemen University because of the small size of the campus. I knew that when it came to academics that it would be easier to learn with a smaller class size. It is also in very close proximity to my home. Daemen also has an amazing reputation for being one of the best schools in the area for science/medical fields. 

Why did you choose your present major?

Throughout high school, I always enjoyed my science classes. I wanted to pursue something in the medical field and Pre-Pharm felt like the perfect choice for me. 

Please briefly describe your Scholar's Day. 

Overall, my Scholar's Day was such a positive experience. I went into it nervous and intimidated but there were many students who are Trustee Scholars that were able to help and give advice. It helped me to go into my interview more confident and prepared.

Please describe your academic experience at Daemen.

My academic experience at Daemen University has been wonderful. All of my professors have been amazing and always willing to help whenever I have questions about any of my classes. There are also so many other ways to receive help on campus that have been beneficial such as PLTLs and Academic Coaches. Everyone is always so helpful and wants to see others succeed. 

What do you like best about Daemen?

My favorite thing about Daemen University is the relationships I have built with others. There are so many ways to meet new people and make connections with others. I have met so many great people so far during my experience at Daemen.

What piece of advice would you give to prospective students? 

My best piece of advice to prospective students is to be confident in who you are and to be true to yourself.
