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!
Ever since I visited the small campus, I knew it was where I wanted to be. Faculty and staff are very welcoming and ensure you get the help you need in order to succeed in their classes. The college is known to be rigorous, but it's actually an advantage in my eyes. You learn more material in greater detail, making you better prepared for your future. If you are looking for a college who recognizes you by name, not by number, this is the college for you!
