Why did you choose Daemen College?

I chose Daemen because it is the perfect size to facilitate an engaging learning environment and because the College has a ton of resources available for student success.

Why did you choose your present major?

With so many fascinating areas of study and extremely passionate faculty, choosing a major here at Daemen has been nothing short of difficult! After exploring every subject area I wanted to, I found Psychology and History to be two interesting fields. Academic Advisement and the Registrar's Office helped me plan my remaining semesters efficiently enough to make double majoring feasible.
