Tradition Keepers

50 Things to do Before You Graduate

Every school has traditions that make it unique. For Daemen University’s 50th anniversary in 1997, a list of traditions was created by student activities director Christopher Malik to give students a sense of milestones they could achieve while at the university. The Tradition Keeper Program is taking that idea one step further. In 2010, the Student Alumni Ambassadors alongside alumni director Kathryn Hammer '06 created the Tradition Keeper Program as a way to get our fellow students more involved both on campus and in the community.

Upload your traditions today!

The Tradition Keeper Program consists of 50 traditions associated with both Daemen University and Western New York. 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 their memories and be rewarded in the process. 

Each time you accomplish a tradition, document your moment on the Tradition Keeper site! Each photo uploaded to your Tradition Keeper program is a special moment captured in time.

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

The more you get involved, the better your chances are of achieving Tradition Keeper status! 

Sincerely, The Student Alumni Ambassadors
