First Year Experience

Davenport University's First Year Experience is dedicated to supporting incoming students so they can achieve their academic, personal, and professional goals. 

The Freshmen Common Read program is facilitated through the First Year Experience office.  For 2013, we are pleased to announce that The Good Food Revolution by Will Allen was selected by a cross-functional team to be the "common read." All new students will be reading this book throughout the course of this academic year. The book is now available in paperback.
