Why I Chose Daemen

My cousin, Erin Tobin graduated from Daemen last year as a Physical Therapist. Knowing that I wanted to go into Physical Therapy as well, she brought me up for a tour of campus my junior year of high school. It was my first college visit so I didn’t really know what to expect. While giving me my tour, we stopped to see a lot of professors. All of the teachers knew her name, asked her how she was doing and they were so talkative and welcoming. I absolutely loved the relationship she had with her teachers.

Spaghetti Dinner to Benefit Wings Flights of Hope

Throughout my years at Daemen, I have been very involved with clubs and activities on campus. Being involved on campus while simultaneously being a full time physician assistant student can at times be challenging, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Being busy is the best way to get the most out of college! I am most involved in the Physician Assistant Student Society (PASS). PASS is a student-run organization of physician assistant students who promote and educate the public about the PA profession and participate in community service projects. As the outreach coordinator, it is my job to contact various organizations and coordinate events for members to become involved with. During the fall semester, I organized a health fair at the Seneca Babcock Community Center. I also coordinate days for members to donate their time at the Ronald McDonald House and the St. Vincent DePaul soup kitchen.

Thoughts Before College

Thoughts Before College

At the start of the Game of Life, you are presented with two options: going to college or finding a career and getting on with the game. I always took the college route, and in doing so, my game piece passed the picture of a huddled student looking tired behind a mountain of books in order to get a better job. As a kid, I thought that was what college was: a mountain of books that you had to read in order to get more job options.
