Davenport University Reviews
My online learning experience with Davenport University has been overall good. Most of my classes have been in seat classes, because I prefer it that way. This past winter semester when Covid-19 hit, and all of our classes were moved online, everyone involved made it such a smooth transition. Although it was very frustrating having to transition online and move out very quickly without much notice, I honestly think it went smooth. Professors were very helpful with being right there to answer questions and make things clear and I was able to end the year very strong.
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!

I absolutely love this school. When I was first interested in Davenport, all of the staff I talked to and worked with were so helpful and nice about getting me enrolled and helping me find my way. I got randomly placed with my roommates and we are all now best friends, I love all my classes and professors, and I am so excited to continue my education here. All of the professors are so helpful if I am struggling and are always so open to talking with me. I love life on campus as well, the housing is very convenient and I enjoy going to activities and sporting events and meeting new people. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and I never have to worry about my safety here.
