I am a non-traditional student and Davenport is perfect for me. The campus is the perfect size, there are two main buildings for classes which makes it easy to get from one class to the next. Most of the professors there are wonderful teachers and people. Davenport offers experiential learning which is one of my favorite things about their programs. The student life center is always offering fun things for the students to do like affordable trips to Tigers and Pistons games and day trips to Chicago. Davenport is private school and is a bit pricey but the school is smaller and the teacher to student ratio is not outrageous. I would change the requirement for rather expensive access to simulations for Word and Excel classes, it seems like that should be included in the tuition. Also, the Lettinga campus no longer offers Coke products. All in all, Davenport is a great school.
Overall I appreciate the work my professors put in to teaching us. Davenport University is a very nice campus, we have up to date technology, clean facilities, a wide variety of sports and clubs, and a wide variety of on campus activities and guest speakers. I am excited about Davenport University's improving sports teams as I am a major sports fan. Although my first choice was the University of Wisconsin, I am overall happy with the choice I made. Davenport offers intimate class sessions which is a great selling point for me. Also, Davenport accepts a lot of transfer credits, so I will graduate in less than four years.
I'm in the nursing program at Davenport University, and I absolutely love it. Everyone is super nice and willing to work together to get projects done and prepare for exams. Basically everyone living on campus plays a sport, so it can be challenging for people to make friends outside of their sports teams.
