What are some reasons you chose your major at Daemen College?
I chose Daemen College for many reasons; specifically for its reputation. It is a highly recommended school for members of the military, veterans, and their families. In addition, Daemen College has a reputation for creating highly successful professionals. The staff and faculty know students on a first name basis and create a personal relationship with them. Having small class sizes allows students to get one-on-one attention while professors are able to tailor their teaching to best suit students needs.
Please describe some of the most valuable skills you feel you’ve learned from your program.

Through different classes in the program, I have learned key problem-solving skills along with different ways to work in a team setting while being able to achieve a common goal.
What are some things you have accomplished or experienced with your program?
I took part in the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program offered during tax season. It allows lower-income families and individuals to visit the college and get their taxes prepared for free. The program provides an opportunity to learn by interacting with people in a real-life scenario.

I have accepted an auditing position with Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA). With my military background and the education I have received from Daemen College, it made me a perfect candidate for this job. I plan on taking the CPA exam as soon as I am eligible.
