Tradition Keepers: 50 Things to do Before You Graduate

Every school has traditions that make it unique. For Daemen College’s 50th anniversary in 1997, a list of traditions was created to give students a sense of milestones they could achieve while at the college. The Tradition Keeper Program is taking that idea one step further. In 2010, the Student Alumni Ambassadors created the Tradition Keeper Program as a way to get our fellow students more involved both on campus and in the community.

The Tradition Keeper Program consists of 50 traditions associated with both Daemen College and Western New York. The traditions range from the seemingly obvious (#7. Have fun with your friends in the Gameroom) to the slightly more involved (#20: Join a student club or organization.). Each student will experience Daemen differently, but these 50 traditions are one way we can experience Daemen together. The Tradition Keeper Program is a way for Daemen students to document our college memories and to be rewarded in the process. The more traditions you complete, the more cool stuff you earn!

Upload your traditions today!

But how does it work?

The Tradition Keeper program is tracked by the photos you take. Each time you accomplish a tradition, document your moment! Take pictures doing each of the traditions you complete on the list and submit them electronically by clicking the link on the Daemen website.

After completing 40 you will you receive a medal during graduation week recognizing you as a Daemen College Tradition Keeper.

If you complete all 50 traditions, you will have your name immortalized on the Tradition Keeper website.

The more you get involved, the better your chances are of achieving Tradition Keeper status! Whether you complete 1 tradition or all 50, the Tradition Keeper program is your personal memento to keep. Each photo uploaded to your Tradition Keeper program is a special moment captured in time. The Tradition Keeper program helps you remember your Daemen experience.

Sincerely, The Student Alumni Ambassadors
