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.
Review Davenport University
Davenport has been an amazing college to attend. My biggest class size was around 25 students, making the face to face interaction between my professors and I possible. The professors new each student on a first name basis which really helped the learning experience. The only thing I can see needing improvement is their online education and the professors that teach those classes.
I like that Davenport University has small student to faculty ratio it helps the professors invest in the student's learning experience and overall well-being. I also like the housing, especially for freshman, because it creates a community. I would like to see more students become involved in student life activities.
