Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Credits don't transfer to legit universities toward either their Bachelor's or Master's programs. If you plan to go on for a Master's degree chances are you will need to stay at Davenport. Check whether credits transfer to state universities before enrolling.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2012

It's a small business school, so the class sizes are 10-30 students as opposed to 300+ students found in a class at a state school. This means more hands-on/one-on-one interaction with both your professors and your classmates. Davenport has a very focused business program and the required electives are related to you major and not just fluff classes.

Degree: Administrative Assistant and Secretarial Science, General
Graduation Year: 2010

I loved the options Davenport gave me. I was able to take most of my classes online but the classrooms that I was in were small so I was able to get time with the teacher. The online class software was easy to use and I was able to fit classtime in around work and family.

I wanted a school that was strong in health sciences, and Davenport University is. I already knew I wanted to be a nurse, and I wanted to stay in the Grand Rapids area, so it fit. I did not want to live at home though, and I loved the residence halls at Davenport U., they are nice and modern, clean, and with plenty of security so I felt very safe. It made my commute ( walk across campus) to school very easy.

The food on campus is good and they have a state of the art fitness center that I made use of at least three times a week. I had everything I needed right there. The student activities committee was busy all the time sponsoring events so there was never a dull moment for me and my soon to be nurses friends!

We spent a lot of time in class and studying, the course work is challenging, but we had a lot of fun too. I felt like the education I was getting was preparing me for the reality of working as a nurse. I especially liked the case studies, they were very interesting and I learned a lot from them.

Davenport University doesn't just teach you and give you a degree, they help you find a good job as well. I used the career planning services which included having a career coach, having help getting my resume together and interview coaching, which I needed because I was nervous. I knew I had the knowledge to be a good nurse, but I wasn't used to searching for a job in a field like that. The career coach was so helpful, by the time I had my first interview, I felt really ready!

My experience at Davenport University was relatively good, considering there are a number of good colleges and universities in this area, and competition is fierce for recruiting students.

I attended evening classes mostly. The class size was small, which meant a little more work than I would have expected, but it also meant more personal instruction. The staff was very helpful in assisting me select the correct courses to graduate and assisted with job placement after I graduated. Since I am a native of this area, housing was not an issue for me, but I have several friends who needed housing on campus and off. Again, the staff came thru and found low cost off campus apartments for students who needed assistance.

Aside from classes, the other students were friendly, and I made a lot of new friends quickly. Being located in the second largest city in Michigan was nice, as there are a lot of off campus options for entertainment, i.e. movie theatres, sports arenas, parks and a large convention center that books shows like Janet Jackson’s tour, Tom Petty , to name a few. Davenport University also offers clubs and other activities for students and most of them are pretty low cost.

Overall, a good college experience!
