"I graduated from the 3-year Sport Management program at Durham College, and thanks to the transfer agreement between the College and Davenport, I completed my bachelor’s degree a year later.

The Davenport admissions representatives are awesome; the teachers have great field experience. We have a global student organization with other Canadian students here, and finally the Grand Rapids campus is beautiful.  I would recommend this opportunity to students who want to further their education. With my internship opportunity, and my campus job with the athletic department, I am gaining skills and experience to be a great candidate for jobs in my field for in the U.S. and Canada."

 -Larissa Karimwabo, BBA Sport Business Management

"I would encourage anyone that has a college diploma and thinks, returning to school after such a long period away to complete their degree is not a realistic goal, to look into the Davenport option.  

It was such a rewarding experience and I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks to all the staff at Davenport and everyone who helped make this possible!"
