High School:  Homer High School

Why did you choose Daemen College?

I loved that when I applied I received immediate contact/outreach from the school. I also wanted to go to school with a little distance from home.

Why did you choose your present major?

I've enjoyed speaking and learning Spanish since junior high so I wanted to continue with language to compliment my focus in health care.

Please describe your academic experience at Daemen College.

I love my academic experience at Daemen. My classes are manageable, I know many of my professors personally, and know that they care about my well-being.

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

I have been a part of the Modern Language Student Association planning campus-wide events to encourage interests in language and different cultures.

What is your favorite campus hangout? Why?

I spend a lot of time in the library because I work there part time and I often study there as well. It's a great place to catch up with other students.

What are your plans after graduation?

I plan to stay at Daemen for my Master’s in Public Health and after graduation, I'd like to work at a non-profit promoting health to different populations.
