Daemen Earns Fourth Top School Distinction From Military Advanced Education

Daemen Earns Fourth Top School Distinction From Military Advanced Education

Daemen College has been selected as a Top School in the 2015 Military Advanced Education’s Guide to Colleges and Universities, making it the fourth time the college has received this national designation.

The guide, which was released in the December issue of Military Advanced Education (MAE), represents the result of a questionnaire of military-supportive policies at more than 600 institutions across the country. It’s intended to arm students with information about colleges and universities that go out of their way to give back to men and women in uniform.

“Receiving this national distinction represents Daemen’s longstanding commitment to providing the best resources and support to help our student veterans be successful in their educational endeavors,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “We are grateful to once again be recognized by Military Advanced Education.”

But the cards include more than the usual well wishes. There’s a message that encourages recipients to “Shine Some Light” to generate awareness for domestic violence.

The card itself features a single, burning candle. And similar glowing light can be seen from Crowley Webb’s office windows this season.

“A candle in a window has served as a sign of welcome to others for centuries,” said Dave Buck, President, Crowley Webb. “Seen from a distance and shining in good times and bad, it is a sign of friendship and family, warmth and welcoming. That’s what inspired us.”

Designated Drivers Hold the Key to a Safe and Successful Holiday Season

 

The holidays are upon us — a time to celebrate with family and friends and prepare to ring in the New Year. And during this hectic season, there’s one thing we simply cannot forget, and it’s far more important than any gift. 

“When we’re out celebrating the holidays, we cannot forget to designate a sober driver who will get us home safely at the end of the night,” said Monica Farrar, director of The Resource Training Center in Amherst. “Nothing can kill the buzz of the holidays quicker than a buzzed or impaired driver out on the road.”
