What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a non-traditional adult student who wants more than anything to earn my bachelor's degree, but attending here has not made me feel "old". From the time I first enrolled, my advisor has been awesome! She will get down in the trenches with you to make sure you are having the best college experience you can have. I love that you are taking classes that are major-specific as well. I do believe classes can help a student to become well-rounded, but when you don't have a lot of time or a lot of money, it is good to only take the classes that you need. The instructors and faculty are great too. I have had to use tutoring services and seek my instructors during non class hours and it has been easy to do. I won't tell a lie and say that there aren't challenges with a few things, but that is to be expected wherever you go. There is something for everyone here and that is what I like most about Davenport University.

I love Davenport University! I never knew much about it until about a year before I went there and now I love it completely. The people that work there are really nice and communicate with you well and really want you to have a bright future. Plus, there seems to be always something going on at DU that you can get involved in with. Even in my case of being a commuter to the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Davenport University is overall a great university with great education. I am a student in the nursing program here at Davenport University's Lettinga camps, their main campus located in Grand Rapids Michigan. Davenport University's nursing program is highly noticed for their great success in and outside the class room and even after students have graduated. If you are a student that is highly focused on your education and a successful career path then Davenport University is the college for you.

I love that my advisor really cares about me, and is interested in how I am doing in my classes. Class size is great the student to professor ratio. The professors really are there to help you whenever you need it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think its fantastic. All the professors have been working in the field that they teach so they bring real experience to the table, not just book smarts. All the professors are very understanding of working students and students with children. They don't get upset if we have to come in late or leave early because they know there is life outside of the classroom.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

It was close to home and it had no waiting list for classes. I went to a community college for one year before Davenport and I was having a really hard time getting into the classes I needed because there was waitlists on all of them.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Take time when choosing a college and deciding what you want to go into. I have changes my mind three times with three years, luckily I was doing generally the same thing. Also, so away to school. Staying home to save money is a good thing but you will soon regret it when going away to visit friends. There is so much more activity going on a big campuses and so many more opportunities. You can join more organizations and meet so many more people. Instead of living at home and trying to figure everything out on your own you will the more chances to experience new things. Be smart with loans! Your parents make too much money to help you but not enough to help you pay for school! Start putting even $50 out of every paycheck aside to help pay of student loans while in school so that you do not run out. Be smart and pay attention in classes, you will need to know this stuff when you graduate and actually try to find a job! Have fun and enjoy it, once you graduate its time to be an adult.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about this school is the price because it is a private college. The price makes up for the class availability though. If you cannot get into a class then they will make another class available. Also the help on campus from the advisors makes the experience so much better and easier to deal with.
