Student Perspective

Starting my career at Daemen College as a freshman in the Physical Therapy program frightened and excited me all at the same time; although the experience molded me into who I am now, I wasn’t sure I had made the right choice. As I sat in Wick Social Room for our first department meeting, I looked around and was nervous if I made the right choices. Throughout high school I knew I was interested in science, but I wasn’t sure that physical therapy provided the correct career for me. Creating anxiety in my life was what college provided for me in the immediate future as I entered Daemen College; however, as I completed more and more of my time at the college, I learned that my gut had led me to the right place.

Reflection on Graduation

This week, campus has been feeling like a ghost town. It’s Graduation Week and nearly everyone has moved off campus and gone home to their families. I have been procrastinating packing my entire room, but in my defense I am not sure that I want to go home just yet. I graduate Saturday, and how do you just say goodbye to a place that has treated you so well for the past four years? My hometown is a solid three hours away from Daemen and it is hard to know that this is my last week here.

Reflection on Graduation

As four years at Daemen College come to and end this week, one cannot help but look back on the abundance of memories.

It seems like just yesterday that I was caught in the Canavan frenzy.

I learned to lean on others, but also the importance of being someone else shoulder to cry on.

Looking Back On My First Year

As the first year of my college career is coming to a close I think back to my first few days at the beginning year. When I was unpacking all my clothes from home, dreading the moment my parents were going to leave, meeting both roommates for the first time and so much more that I was worried about at that time. Like every freshman at that time I was terrified. However, as I look back and reminisce about the things that worried me the most at that time or how I reacted to certain situations I am able to see how much I have grown as an individual.

Why I Chose Daemen

Being from New York City and coming to a school eight hours away was a big decision for me.  I knew I wanted to go away, but I never expected to come to Buffalo or even Daemen for that matter.  My decision to attend Daemen College was not taken lightly but I’m here, and I’m excited that I choose Daemen.
