The mission of Daemen College is to prepare students for life and leadership in an increasingly complex world. Founded on the principle that education should elevate human dignity and foster civic responsibility and compassion, the College seeks to integrate the intellectual qualities acquired through study of the liberal arts with the education necessary for professional accomplishment. This integration which recognizes equal value in liberal studies and professional programs aims at preparing graduates who are dedicated to the health and well-being of both their local and global communities.
With a Daemen education, students will acquire the skill to solve problems creatively and think critically. They will be comfortable with diversity and will recognize the importance of a global perspective. They will be able to work with others and be invigorated by environments that present challenges and demand innovation. Daemen students are expected to be active participants in their own education and informed citizens who understand that learning is a life-long journey.
At the heart of Daemen's integrated learning experience is the relationship that can develop between the College's faculty and its students. Daemen prides itself on maintaining a student-centered atmosphere and a close professional and collaborative association among all members of the College community. Assisted by a supportive faculty, Daemen students are encouraged to pursue goals beyond their initial expectations, to respond to academic challenges, and to develop habits of mind that enrich their lives and their community.
Compared to other campuses in Buffalo, Daemen's is pretty small. Despite this, the school puts in massive efforts to entertain students and to keep them occupied; from Casino Nights, TGIF (free food), Springfest, and intramural sports, to name a few, there always seems to be something going on. Although only minor on our campus, there is also Greek life with four sororities and one fraternity, all of which comply with strict anti-hazing rules and laws. Student administration positions are available also, including Student Alumni Ambassadors, Student Association, Tour Guides and Student Government, all of which are key roles to be played in the foundation of the school. If you like to get out and do things, Daemen offers a world of opportunities to do so with a little or a lot for everyone.Read More
