While there are always people (professors included) that one does not like, generally the professors are super engaging, great teachers and want to help their students! Most classes are challenging and professors always offer their help.
Review Davidson College
The people there were very friendly and the professors were incredibly helpful. Not much to do on the weekends except go to the same places and hang out with the same people. The campus is beautiful yet small, even cramped at times. Unfortunately due to its size, it doesn't have very many majors and I wasn't interested in any that were offered. I transferred midway through my first year.
There are a few drawbacks - mostly financial - but I'm very glad to be in the fraternity that I'm in. It's not a crucial part of the social scene, but I'm really grateful for my family in my fraternity and have had lots of great times with them, not just partying!
