Why did you choose Daemen?

I chose Daemen College because it has such a tight community, everyone is so welcoming, and it was just the perfect fit for me.

Why did you choose your present major?

I chose Athletic Training as my major because I grew up an athlete and I have gone through injuries and needing to learn how to keep my body healthy during sports and working out. I want to be able to teach young athletes and anyone learning to be fit how to prevent injuries, how to treat ongoing ones and more about their physical bodies while being active.

Describe academic experience at Daemen College.

So far academically Daemen has been fantastic. My professors are great and very helpful.

Do you live on campus? Please tell us about your on campus experiences.

I am currently living on campus in canavan hall. Being on campus is nice because I am always surrounded by my peers and professors and I have nonstop access to all of Daemen’s resources.

What do you like best about Daemen College?

What I like best about Daemen college is that we are one big community and there are many activities that bring the students together.

What is your favorite campus hangout? Why?

My favorite campus hangout is the pool and ping pong room located in Wick center. It gives the students a chance to hang out and have fun not just in the dorms and classrooms.
