Why did you choose Daemen?

 I chose Daemen because of the praise that I had heard about their medical programs as well as the small campus size.

What excites you most about being a tour guide?

 I am excited to be able to interact with perspective students and help them decide if Daemen is right for them.

What advice would you give to a prospective student?

Complete applications early so you have time to make your final decisions as well as not to stress about going to college.

What is your most memorable moment at Daemen?

My most memorable moment at Daemen was when I completed my first semester and I was able to look back and see that I was stressed over nothing.

Who is your favorite professor and why?

 I have two favorite professors: Mr. Swartz because his chem lab taught me how to really manage my time as well as gave me a greater love for chemistry & Mrs. Ezak because I excelled at her Biology class and she was always available when you needed her.

How has Daemen changed/shaped your life?

I'm very academic focused and being at Daemen has allowed me to make friends that are also as academically focused as me.
