Hi, my name is Paul Muccigrosso.
I am the Director of the Veteran Service Department here at Daemen College.
Student veterans are a central part of our college community, and we remain committed to their educational, and their professional success.
In this video, I’m going to provide you with an overview of the Veteran Service Department at Daemen College.
Whether you’re thinking of beginning your college experience or you’re considering transferring into a specific program, looking at Daemen College, could very well be one of the most important decisions that you make.
Let’s get started.
Ensuring the success of our veteran students is something that I’m quite passionate about.
I am a decorated veteran of the United States Navy and I’ve been a College Veteran Student while earning three separate degrees.
That being said, I know the importance and the significance of providing an authentic sense of direction and care to men and women of uniform and their dependent students and I take this responsibility very seriously.
I believe in the critical importance of the mission of both the college and the Veteran Service Department to provide support and guidance leading to advancing student success.
There are a number of reasons why Daemen College would be a great choice for you.
Daemen has made a significant and ongoing commitment to creating and then perpetuating this department as a center of excellence for veteran students.
As an institution, we’re small enough to make each student feel welcome and engaged, at the same time, we’re large enough to provide a robust academic experience after all ensuring that you’re on the right path to a career after receiving your degree is crucial.
It’s so important to prove the return on investment in your education and Daemen provides that to our students.
The Veteran Service Department has full-time staff that specializes providing our veterans students with administrative support, counseling support, reintegrative support and when necessary, housing support.
This is all while doing everything necessary to ensure the highest potential for veteran student success.
Much like serving in the United States Armed Forces there are challenges that new students may face when beginning their degree program.
Daemen College recognizes the potential for these challenges and has developed academic and social infrastructures to really be there, for Daemen Military-Aligned Student Population.
No student is ever on their own.
We engage early and often through the Veteran Service Department and along with the collaboration of other departments across our college campus, we establish those bonds early in the admission process to assist whenever and however possible.
I have experience as a clinical social worker at a veterans administration medical institution and I have been a proponent and supporter of veterans programs since the 1970s.
I consider it an honor to continue my service to men and women of the US Armed Forces as they seek higher education and Daemen College may very well be the perfect place to do just that.
If you were to take away one thing from this video, it should be this, when you’re here, you are not alone.
We will work directly with you to ensure that you have the support that you need to be successful.
Thank you for taking the time to watch this video and we hope this provides you with a better understanding of the Veteran Service Department at Daemen College.
