Upon applying to Davenport University, I was looking for a quality business school and I found one in Davenport. The courses are enlightening and informative. The instructors are informative and really care about the students and how they are doing. There are many resources that you can turn to for support if you are struggling with a course or if you just have an issue. The dorms are great, and the sports teams are fun! I got the college experience at Davenport and I am very happy to be a student in the land of the Panthers!

Davenport University is an excellent school. The professors are extremely helpful, along with the rest of the staff. The campus is small, making is easy to get around. The course load can be overwhelming at times, but that is the case for any college! Overall, I love my school!
I love Davenport! I am a nontraditional student, and DU made the transition back to school quite effortless. DU offers small class sizes, professors who actually care and want to see you succeed, and focus more on ensuring you truly absorb the material instead of just memorizing it to pass a test. I'm not sure of the nightlife here because my party days are long gone, but from what I've heard, it can be a fun time!
