Davidson College Reviews
The hype is true. Amazing place. School built on Christian values, but with an actual commitment to diversity and inclusiveness. D-1 status makes a big difference in terms of quality of athletic facilities for a school of this size (particularly post Steph Curry). Most compelling reason by far to attend though is the faculty-- classes are amazing. I still reference my undergrad coursework many years later. Beautiful campus. Good luck getting in!
Davidson is definitely a small school. By that, I mean that it's smaller than my high school. To be quite honest, there really isn't much to do within the town of Davidson, and without a car, Charlotte isn't exactly accessible. I knew all too well of this, but I still decided to come here because Davidson genuinely is an amazing school. Professors are very engaged with their students and I can definitely see how passionate they are about the courses they teach. Class sizes are great as well, with several of my classes having fewer than 15 students and none over ~30. While diversity of the student population leaves something to be desired, Davidson is slowly improving.
My first year at Davidson has been a great experience. The new science building is incredible, and I've received a lot of support and encouragement from my professors. Although Davidson is a small campus, there is always something to do. The eating houses are a great way to meet people. Whether you want to get involved academically or socially, there is something for everybody. The quality of life at Davidson is superb. The town has shops and restaurants within walking distance. But if you need to go a little further, the campus has free bicycles that you can borrow through a phone app.
