  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

The small school atmosphere at Daemen College provides a welcoming feeling, and makes the transition from high school much less intimidating. The staff and students alike are beyond helpful and always glad to offer their assistance and time. My experience at Daemen thus far has only made me ecstatic about my future there, and all the opportunities I will have to learn and grow.

It's a small and intimate campus that offers as much or more than a larger university. I like the fact that the faculty actually knows who you are and takes an interest in how you're doing. I feel very comfortable here.
