Daemen College Fall Open House

Fall Open House is coming quickly! This event will be held on Saturday, October 18th from 8:30am-1:30pm.  It is a great opportunity to find out what the college has to offer potential students! One of my favorite parts of the event is that you can sit down and meet directly with faculty from different majors you are interested in. This is the best way to get to know what each major has to offer. It will also show you the passion each faculty member has for their field and get a good idea of what you are getting into when choosing that major.
