Overall, I have had a positive experience at Daemen College. I was a warm and welcoming environment with very small class sizes (never more than twenty). The professors care about you academically and as an overall person. The Education Department is small and a great place to be! I had a great time.

I have had a great experience with Daemen. The majority of the professors care about you and your work and will go the extra mile to assist you. The location is superb, close to the city of Buffalo for easy access to restaurants and cafes, but being far enough away that the campus always feels safe. I have never felt as if I was in danger while walking back to my dorm at night. I know many people look for the typical college experience with parties and if this is what your heart is set on Daemen may not be right for you. But if you’re looking for a body of hardworking students then you would fit right in. One downside of Daemen is that most of the students are commuters so during the weekends the school feels like empty since no one is around. Sometimes however, having a desolate campus during the weekend is a saving grace, and you can focus more on work. Despite some flaws, I would recommend Daemen to someone looking to have a more intimate experience during their college career.
The campus is small, everyone knows everyone. The ratio of staff to students is excellent. I love the small community feel, and there isn't many parties which is good! I love it!
