Davenport is a great school that offers amazing academics as well as some top notch sports teams. We have just begun the switch to ncaa division 2 athletics and it is going to be a great experience for our whole school. The classroom sizes are very small and once you start getting into classes for your major the class sizes are even smaller. It really gives you the chance to get close with your professor and make connections to help you on the real world.

So far, my school is a great place to make friends as well as connections that could carry over into the business world. They greeted me with open arms, my experience had its ups and downs just like anyone else.
