Why did you choose Daemen?

I chose Daemen College because it has such a tight community, everyone is so welcoming, and it was just the perfect fit for me.

Why did you choose your present major?

The reason I chose athletic training is so I can make a difference in people's lives when it comes to being the first response to an injury, helping to prevent injuries, or just making someone's day when it comes to helping them. Being an athletic trainer means I can work with sports teams, hospitals, in the military, and a broad variety of places to people who need it.

Describe academic experience at Daemen College.

So far, academically, Daemen has been fantastic. My professors are great and very helpful.

What do you like best about Daemen College?

The best part of Daemen for me is all of the available resources for the students.

What is your favorite campus hangout? Why?

My favorite campus hangout is the outdoor volleyball and basketball course. They are a great spot to hang out with your peers and continue to be active in our everyday lives.
