Why did you choose Daemen?

At the time I knew I could go anywhere to be an English major, but I chose Daemen because of the experience. It was just the right distance away from home. 

What activities are you involved in on campus?

I am treasurer of Cynergy and SA, Secretary of BSU, Tour Guide. Was a peer mentor and sophomore class president 

What advice would you give to a prospective student?

Make the best of your freshman year. Join organizations on campus to stay involved and focus on building good connections with your professors and faculty. 

How has Daemen changed/shaped your life?

Throughout college, I've learned many life lessons, but I would say that the people I met at Daemen have changed the way I view certain situations.
