Daemen college is absolutely terrible! There is nothing to do to keep students active, the school is significantly small. Everybody has class in the same building, and they put effort into the PA and PT majors but disregard anybody else. They will find anything that they can to reduce financial aid. The school is very disorganized and small. Many people end up transferring outof there because it is not a college that students should be in. Just a terrible school

Not only did they give me all the financial aid I needed, but they gave me an $8,000 scholarship. I am by no means the ideal student; I am older than most and transferred in, so I was extremely surprised when I saw how big of a scholarship I got. Especially since the cost of tuition is less than $30k a year!

There is also a program that allows students to use their financial aid to buy books in the bookstore. This is extremely helpful for anyone who relies on financial aid to purchase books.

Another thing worth mentioning is how friendly and helpful the financial aid staff is. I have gone into their offices a few times with questions about increased income affecting my financial aid. They are always able to answer any questions and seem very friendly. The only instance where they didn't have a definite answer, they were able to direct me to someone who did.

Daemen College is a very safe, small, friendly campus. Although there are not a lot of scholarship options for art students. Under an art degree, academics are on the more challenging side for me. Keeping an academic scholarship is a struggle since there are limited art scholarships available.
