    I am so glad that I chose Daemen College for my undergraduate studies. The small campus and class sizes are perfect for trying to make friends and strong connections. The faculty and staff are beyond kind, and they truly want to see you succeed in life. Great recommendation letters can be written from the professors at the school. In addition, there is always some event or activity going on around campus, so you are never bored! The academics at Daemen are rigorous, but it will most certaintly prepare you for your future.

    Three years in Daemen College and I cannot get enough. As I face my upcoming senior year, I can only think about my first time arriving to Daemen and getting to know the campus. Although the campus may not be as big as other colleges and universities, student life makes up for it by providing different sorts of activities to do around campus. Class average is decent size as well as professors are very warm and welcoming. Though diversity is average in Daemen, clubs such as Hispanos y Latinos Unidos and the African Student Association welcome students to learn more about the culture and plan student events and fundraisers. The city of Amherst is very quiet, a friendly neighborhood, and filled with activities to do. I would definitely recommend for high school students to look at this college as a consideration seeing as the school does cater to a wide range of majors and minors as well as sports and clubs for students to have a great time!
    I love Daemen because it felt like a new beginning it felt like my new home. One thing I would tell a prospective student is to always stay confident and to not be afraid to adjust to new things. Just be yourself because Daemen will always except you for who you are.
    I have many favorite professors however I would have to say Professors Niland, Roland, and Flint. These inspiring women are my favorite professors because they’ve given me so much advice not just for school but also in life. They have made the process to adjusting to college way easier.
    My most memorable moment at Daemen College getting on deans list 2 straight semesters. Daemen College has matured me a lot I’ve learned about the business perspective in life as well as the living perspective. I’ve grown into a young man being here at Daemen College.
