Why did you choose Daemen University?

Everything had aligned right. With my scholarship and tour, i knew that this was where I wanted to be, and it didn't hurt that I only live fifteen minutes away.

Why did you choose your present major?

I had always had a yearning for teaching and a love for math. Around the start of high school, I played with the idea of melding the two of those, and my career started.

Please briefly describe your Scholar's Day. 

I was extremely nervous and could barely think of any comforting thoughts. However, when I came into the room with my interviewers, they were so empathetic that my nerves washed away and I was as personal and honest as I usually am. The interview was great with me answering their questions from a stance of genuine honesty.

Please describe your academic experience at Daemen.

My academic experience so far has been pretty balanced. There are some difficult areas in my major however, through hard work and application, I have overcome and will continue to overcome those challenges.

What do you like best about Daemen?

It's the atmosphere. It's a small individualized focused community where all feel welcome.

What piece of advice would you give to prospective students? 

Take chances, for you never know where you might succeed here if you don't try.
