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.

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.
