It’s Fair to Ask the Question: What Can’t Jevon Jordan Do?

Growing up in New York City, the 2021 business administration and entrepreneurship graduate made what he calls “a monumental decision”—moving across the state—to enroll at Daemen.

Now he calls campus a “second home.”

“Every success at Daemen,” said Jordan, “stems from me taking that leap, and stepping out of my shell.”

Bursting Light

Seeming to stretch the very possibilities of what a student can accomplish in four years, Jordan seized—and created his own—opportunities at Daemen, strengthening an innate sense of creativity, independence, and leadership.

Jordan arrived in Amherst “as a regular kid,” wrote an admissions counselor in an awards nomination, “and transformed into a bursting light.”

His achievement reached beyond academics: Jordan served as a resident assistant and founded a music group, Underrated Evolution, that performed at the college’s annual Springfest.

What is WME?

How many college students can say they’ve sold a business to their alma mater—before they’ve even graduated?

Started as a class project his first year at the college, Wildcat Media & Entertainment (WME) became an official student organization and has become a staple on campus; telling the story of Daemen through videos, podcasts, music, social media, and events, WME features interviews with students, faculty, athletes, and celebrities, including singer-songwriter Jay Sean.

“College is what you make it.”

What’s Next?

This fall, Jordan enrolled in the MBA program at the college— another step on his path as an entrepreneur; along the way, he plans on contributing to the evolution of WME, mentoring students and further honing an already-strong legacy at the school.

“College is what you make it,” he said. “It is an incredible experience if you put in the effort to achieve your goals—and follow your own path.”
