I am currently attending Davenport and I love it! There are so many people who are all different and who each have a story to tell. Davenport is a diverse university and that opens the doors for so many opinions and perspectives. I think it's important to listen to and view situations from multiple angles and Davenport gave me the opportunity to do so. DU also has many clubs and sports teams to be a part of. There is something for everyone. My professors and classmates are patient and helpful. They are willing to put in the extra time to help you understand and make sure you get the help you need. I have loved attending classes here!
Review Davenport University
DU is an outstanding school! They have multiple beautiful campuses throughout Michigan making it easier to attend. The professors are all amazing and extremely helpful. I couldn't imagine anywhere else to attend to complete my Bachelor's.
I love Davenport University. The instructors and the administration are wonderful advocates for student achievement! The simplicity and the accommodations to access tutors or other resources for learning are outstanding.
