Daemen Veteran’s Center Named for Alumna, Long-Time Supporter

Daemen Veteran’s Center Named for Alumna, Long-Time Supporter

Daemen College’s newly refurbished Veteran’s Center, which provides a welcoming campus space devoted to students who have served in the military, has been named in honor of alumna Nancy Haberman Gacioch, a long-time supporter and friend of the college.

The 500-square-foot Nancy Haberman Gacioch Center for Veterans was officially dedicated at a Sept. 12 ribbon-cutting celebration attended by Daemen President Gary A. Olson, veterans and others from the college community. Bill Gacioch, who surprised his wife with the event, was also in attendance along with their three children and family friends at the dedication for the center.

Education Tax Credits

It's tax time, and your kitchen table is littered with papers and forms. As if this isn't bad enough, you recently paid your child's college semester bill, and you don't know where you'll find the money to pay the taxes that you expect to owe. Well, you might finally catch a break. Now that your child is in college, you might qualify for one of two education tax credits--the American Opportunity credit (formerly the Hope credit) and the Lifetime Learning credit. And because a tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction against taxes owed, it's more favorable than a tax deduction, which simply reduces the total income on which your tax is based.
