Daemen Opens New Section of Campus

Daemen Opens New Section of Campus

Daemen College formally opened a new section of campus with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held on Nov. 22 to celebrate the completion of a footbridge that connects with the original part of campus grounds.

Set in an attractive wooded area on the south end of Daemen’s campus, the approximately 30-foot bridge is accessible from a recently installed parking lot located by Alumni House, which opened this fall for the Division of Institutional Advancement, and the college’s Honors House. The bridge spans a small culvert and leads to a walking path behind Schenck Hall.

“This new bridge connects our newest facilities with the rest of campus and both symbolically and physically bridges the new and older parts of our beautiful and growing campus," said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. "It signals a new era for Daemen College.”

MQA Students Turn STREAM Fundraising Into a Fun Community Project

MQA Students Turn STREAM Fundraising Into a Fun Community Project

Students at Mary Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School in Cheektowaga love their special STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art, Math) classes and the hands-on learning associated with the program. From Kitchen Chem and Arcade Academy to Fun With Physics and Robotics, STREAM impacts all students attending MQA, from Universal Pre-K through Grade 8.

To ensure that the program continues this year and beyond, students are taking part in a fundraising initiative that, like the STREAM program itself, has a hands-on element. Instead of just asking the community for funds for the program, the students have artistically enhanced ordinary business envelopes with drawings of their favorite STREAM projects. These envelopes are now being distributed to Catholic churches in the Cheektowaga area.

Daemen College has opened the doors to its newest addition to campus, Alumni House, which will serve as a central hub for the Office of Institutional Advancement’s fundraising, alumni relations, and publications operations.

“For the first time, our institutional advancement team will be centralized in the same building, which will provide for better access and greater collaboration among these key offices,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “Alumni House is a welcoming place where we can engage with our graduates, donors, visitors, and the campus community throughout the year.”
