Why Luke Chose Davenport University:
- ”I made my decision to continue my education and distance running career at Davenport firstly, because of my experience on my official visit. The facilities were all very new, from dorms to weight rooms, and it was obvious the college seriously invests money into their athletic and academic programs and facilities. I loved the coaching staff and the culture that they seem to be building in their program. Along with the athletic side, Davenport is a great school for business and has that middle ground number of students where I won’t feel overwhelmed, but have tons of opportunities to make new friends and gain new experiences. Lastly it is in a great city, Grand Rapids where I will have a multitude of options for internships.”
