Why did you choose Daemen College?

I chose Daemen College because the community is small and welcoming.

Why did you choose your present major?

I chose my major because I want to help kids who struggle with math, like I used to.

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

Education is a small program at Daemen, but they do a wonderful job preparing us for our futures in this field.

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

Daemen's faculty and staff are very friendly and supportive. Every professor I’ve had thus far has gone well and beyond the requirements to making sure they are readily available for all students questions and advice.

What are your plans after graduation?

My plan after graduation is to become a mathematics teacher at a local high school. I hope to get my master’s in special education as well to open myself up to more opportunities!

What clubs or organizations have you been a part of here at Daemen College? What kinds of things do they do?

I am involved in the Education and AfterMath Club. I just joined the Pride Alliance Club and am looking to join the sorority Delta Phi Mu. I do various volunteer work activities with the clubs I am involved with. I hope to do more this semester!
