Daemen University faculty and staff are preparing to host Experience Daemen Week, an event that provides prospective students with opportunities to learn about their desired major and the benefits of a Daemen education.
The weeklong event will run from Monday, Feb. 20, to Friday, Feb. 24, during the winter break for many local high school students.
Opportunities to meet with faculty and current students, speak with admissions counselors, and attend unique class experiences will be available throughout the week.
Monday will feature an admissions presentation, campus tours, and a complimentary luncheon in the campus dining hall, while Tuesday will provide individual visits with admissions counselors, tours, and lunch. From Wednesday to Friday, prospective students will have the opportunity to attend classes within their field of interest.
New this year, faculty will host a variety of customized, experiential learning opportunities.
“Faculty members from each discipline will offer authentic and engaging learning experiences, which include live demonstrations, interactive seminars and other offerings,” said Yolanda Morris, director of admissions events and special programs. “These experiences are designed to help prospective students learn more about our majors and how Daemen faculty go the extra mile to deliver a high-quality education to their students.”
Some of the experiences throughout the week will include a presentation on exercise physiology with the option to participate in exercises for physical therapy majors; a serigraphy workshop and other presentations with faculty from the Visual and Performing Arts Department; and a chance to meet with Paralegal Studies faculty along with members of the on-campus Paralegal Club.
“Overall, Experience Daemen Week provides prospective students with unique and immersive experiences that can help choose their major and, ultimately, determine if Daemen is the right fit for them,” said Morris.
