AMHERST, N.Y. – Daemen College has opened its first-ever dedicated honors facility, dubbed Honors House, located in a newly renovated home near the college’s Getzville Road entrance. The facility will serve as a study and communal space specifically for Honors Program students.

As a major initiative in fostering a healthy college environment, Daemen College has implemented a new tobacco-free policy, effective Sept. 6, 2016.

In doing so, Daemen joins more than 1,100 colleges and universities across the U.S. that have made a strong commitment to promoting the health and well-being of their college community by creating a 100 percent tobacco-free campus.

“In light of the many health risks associated with tobacco use, creating a campus environment that’s clean and free from tobacco products is key to the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “The courtesy and cooperation of everyone on campus will contribute to making this a successful transition, and we will provide the collegial support needed to members of the Daemen community who may find this change to be challenging.”
