Cameron - 07/22/2022

Daemen College is a great school that has small class sizes that I really enjoy. It also has an inclusive atmosphere and lots of opportunities for everyone on campus to meet people and do things that they are interested in. A final note is that most of the professors that I have come across are very helpful and treat the students as adults.

Daemen College is a private college, good for students who are interesting in PT and PA.

Julianna

The moment I stepped onto campus I felt at home. The small community at provides an at home atmosphere that most other colleges cannot provide. The opportunities at Daemen are better than I could have ever imagined. I am a student in the Education Department,all of my classes have a small student to teacher ratio, which allows for more opportunities for each student. I am so excited for where my future will take me here at Daemen, and I have a lot to learn, but I feel like this is the best place for me to be.

Madison

Daemen has given me the opportunity to thrive both academically and athletically. The professors here are always readily available, and always make sure students come first. I always feel safe and cared about here, I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else.
