What You Need to Know to Pass Your Naturalization Test

 

Imagine this scenario: You have been a green card holder for the past five years and have made sure to spend less than six months a year outside of the United States. You can now finally apply to become a U.S. citizen! 

After submitting your application to USCIS and attending your biometrics appointment, you have been scheduled for your final naturalization interview. You’ve heard that the tests are fairly easy and did not think you would need to study. You’re shocked when the interviewing officer asks you question after question that you do not know the answer to. You sadly do not pass the naturalization test that day. 

Niland Named Daemen’s Athletics Director

Niland Named Daemen’s Athletics Director

Daemen College President Gary A. Olson has appointed Bridget Niland as director of athletics. A member of the college faculty since 2006, she replaces William Morris, who has left to pursue other opportunities.

In addition, Jessica Gorski has been promoted to associate athletic director for sport administration as the athletic department continues to strengthen in light of its advancement to the Provisional Year of the NCAA Division II membership process.

“These two appointments will go a long way to move Daemen athletics to new levels of excellence,” said Olson. “We are now perfectly positioned to gain full NCAA membership.”

With Niland’s appointment as Daemen’s athletic director, she becomes, at present, only the second woman in that role at a Western New York college, joining Medaille College's Amy DeKay.

Daemen Receives National Distinction As a ‘Great College to Work For’

Daemen College has been named to The Chronicle of Higher Education’s 2014 Honor Roll as a “Great College to Work For,” an elite distinction that places the college as one of the top 10 small four-year institutions to work for in the nation. This marks the first time Daemen has been selected for this distinguished workplace recognition as one of the best colleges in the United States.

“The fact that Daemen has been named one of the nation’s top 10 small four-year colleges to work for is a tribute to our devoted faculty and staff, who together make Daemen a remarkably collegial workplace and an exceptional learning community for our students,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “We are honored to receive this prestigious national recognition.”

The results, which were released today (July 21) in The Chronicle’s seventh annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of more than 43,000 employees at 278 colleges and universities across the U.S.
