Why did you choose Daemen College?

I chose Daemen College for its outstanding Physician Assistant program, and for its small, welcoming community that allows students to have individualized attention in the classroom.

Why did you choose your present major?

I chose Physician Assistant as my major because being able to help people every day at the professional level is my ultimate goal in life.

Please describe your academic experience at Daemen College. (Ex: It is challenging, but I know it will prepare me for my career, etc.)

Thus far, my academic experience here at Daemen has been challenging, but in a good way, as I know that this heavy workload will only help to prepare me for the upcoming years, as well as my professional career.

What do you like best about Daemen College?

So far, my favorite aspect of Daemen College is the friendly atmosphere that is present around campus. It was because of the friendly faces and warm welcomes that I was able to feel comfortable here so soon after moving in, and why I not only felt at ease, but was excited to return!

What is your favorite campus hangout? Why?

My favorite campus hangout would have to be a study room in the RIC. The majority of my time outside of class is spent studying, so it is nice to be able to share a room with my friends and study as a group.

What are your plans after graduation?

After graduation, I hope to be a certified physician assistant specializing in either orthopedics or pediatrics.
