I think Davenport University is an amazing college for anyone who wants a more family type feel to their experience. When I am on campus, I get greeted by a ton of people and I do not know half of them. Everyone there is super friendly and they are willing to help me with anything I need. My professors are amazing and very considerate as long as you communicate properly with them! The campus is beautiful and I love the modernized designs of their newer buildings! The campus may be small but it is not so small that you get bored on campus! There is always something to do or someone to meet and I love that aspect of campus life!

My overall experience at Davenport University has been positive. I am pursuing a Human Resource Management Bachelor's Degree, from Davenport University. I have a 3.89 grade-point-average. I am on pace, to graduate, and with highest honors. Most of my community college credits transferred and to Davenport University. Davenport University's online Human Resource Management program has been beneficial, because it enabled me, to work, virtually, and from remote locations. Davenport University's policy that pertains to the use of Google Docs should be changed. In several of my courses, instructors enabled students and to use Google Docs. Google Docs enabled these students, to change, and manipulate the other students' works' quality, which is unacceptable. I believe, Davenport University should ban the use of Google Docs, because it creates confusion and conflict.
I love the small campus which allows you to have a smaller class, and less people in the dorms and cafe! This gives a more personal learning area with classes that were the same as the average high school, making it easier to transition to from high school. This also helps you in making friends, because there is a smaller class size and you get to meet more people. For me, this was huge because I did not know anyone!
