What was your reason for coming to Daemen College?
I chose to come to Daemen because of their excellent academics and well known medical programs. I knew that Daemen could not only equip me with the knowledge that I needed to be successful in my career, but that I could be led and supported by the wise and friendly faculty. For me, Daemen was the whole package from the innovative library to the campus life -- Daemen was everything that I was looking for.
What do you aspire to be after college/what are your career plans?
After college, I plan on being an Athletic Trainer in a collegiate setting. I greatly admire all sports and the love and determination that is put behind every play. Being able to assist the team in making sure that everyone is able to perform to the best of their ability is what I would like to do, no matter what the sport may be.
Please describe your impressions of Daemen College.
While visiting Daemen College, they had left positive impressions on me that separated them from the rest of the schools I had looked at. I perceived Daemen as a very studious and successful academic school with kind peers and faculty. The ability of the school to stay involved with the students and know them by name, rather than a number on a roster, is what really stood out to me.
Tell us about your life outside of academics: clubs, sports, hobbies, things to do around Buffalo, NY.
Outside of academics, I enjoy being active with friends during intramural sports and going to the on-campus gym. Off campus, there are many things to do in Buffalo such as going to the mall, and seeing what downtown has to offer with all of the personally owned restaurants that serve some of the best food that can’t be found anywhere else. Less than thirty minutes away is Niagara Falls which my friends and I visit annually.
Please describe any internship, study abroad, service learning, or academic experience (Academic Festival or research you are working on or have worked on in the past).
I had the privilege to be placed with an amazing program formally known as the Young Adult Life Transitions Program (YALT), for service learning. My position as a student friend was to help teach the students functional skills in order to be successful in the work place. While working with the students, I not only was able to help them grow, I also grew and made some remarkable friends along the way.
