David - International Business
David was an international student from Caracas, Venezuela. He majored in International Business and had an internship at Liberty Pumps, which actually turned into a job. David has applied his knowledge and skills at national and international trips with the company. "The internship is the main reason I got the job," David states. "I had an opportunity to get to know the company and become familiar with what they do. I am very glad I was afforded the chance to join this company through the internship."
What are the academics like on campus?
The teachers at Daemen are very prepared and know how to approach a student. I am a business major and the teachers have a lot of business experience outside the classroom which helps them teach us things that are not in the textbooks.

I don’t have just one favorite thing about Daemen, I have many. The people here are great!

What is your favorite thing about Buffalo, NY?
One of my favorite things about Buffalo is the food, the people, the night life and going to Bills and Sabres games. Even though I am not a big fan of football or hockey, both sports are really fun to go to and experience. Buffalo has a great college life and there are a lot of things that students can do to enjoy the college life. Also I can’t forget about Niagara Falls which is a place where everybody has to visit because it is truly amazing.
