Making the Most of a Summer Break in College

As many of you may know, college breaks are much different from high school breaks. At Daemen, we have five main breaks. Spring break and Spring Holiday are both during the spring semester while Thanksgiving break is during the fall. In between the fall and spring semesters we usually have about a month to a month and a half winter break, and in between the spring and fall semesters we have almost four months off for summer break. If you add it all up, we are only in school for half a year! So what do we do with all the free time?

Studying Abroad in Italy

March 11th my application was due, April 15th my deposit was due, and May 9th was the departure date. I discovered the possibility on Thursday, but this was Saturday March 7th when I decided to call my mom. As the phone rang, I wasn’t sure what I was going to say. It was too late: my mom answered the phone, and I blurted, “I think I am going to go to Italy.”

Introducing Kimberly

Hello Everyone! Since I am new to the admissions blog, I thought I should start by introducing myself! My name is Kimberly, and I grew up in Rochester, NY. I graduated from Gates Chili High School (Go Spartans!!) in 2013 and began attending Daemen in the fall of 2013 as a physical therapy major. I changed my major to biochemistry in the spring of my freshman year. However, I began visiting Daemen as an art major, and I applied as a government and political science major. (I had a hard time making up my mind…)
