McDaniel College Reviews

6 reviews
I absolutely loved my experience at McDaniel School. I graduated with my bachelors in Psychology and Philosophy with a minor of sociology and liberal arts in 2019! I am now about to continue my journey with McDaniel by beginning my Clinical counseling masters and my disabilities support services certification in 2021! I honestly couldn't have made all this happen with out the support from the Student Academic Support Service Department!!
