I think that Davenport is a great school to learn at and it's business school is great to attend. Davenport even has there own business facility and parking lot where it makes it easy to locate when on the campus and easy to find when you're a newcomer.

Chelsi - 01/24/2021

While attending Davenport University, I experienced numerous professors that made students teach the class to themselves. Most of the professors were nice but they were not really interested in the success of students. My advisor enrolled me into classes I did not need and I actually went through four different advisors in my year as a student because they kept quitting.

jared - 08/05/2020

davenport is an amazing school to attend. its a little pricy but in all honesty, it's worth every penny. the other students are super chill and respectful to everyone's opinions and ideas. the classroom atmosphere is also great and the profs don't make things weird which is great in my opinion. davenport has few flaws and that's why I go there.

I was overall surprised with the quality of Davenport University. Originally, I decided to give it a shot after hearing some good reviews from friends. The IT networking academics have accumulated quite a reputation for high quality education and it is wonderful to see the school strive to maintain it. Additionally, The Committee on National Security Systems in conjunction with the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) jointly announced the designation of Davenport University as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE/IAE) for academic years 2011 through 2016. It is a great education experience and the professors are very connected with the students. Many teachers give out their personal cell phone numbers to assist with any questions and respond very quickly.

  5. What kind of person should attend this school?

    This school actually disappoints me. They allow too many partiers in. People that are allowed to attend this school should be serious about their career. A person that is not always drinking a smoking weed, instead he or she is in the room doing homework or at a friend's room playing Xbox. In my case, I am helping people with computer problems, and trying to design the next big hit game.
