Davis & Elkins College Reviews
My experience touring Davis and Elkins College was absolutely incredible. I considered it a privilege and honor to be taken around the campus by both former and current students. I loved the personal, close-knit community feel of the college. I felt like I knew everyone. Most importantly, I felt at home.
The equipment is fair; not entirely modern, nor outdated. The weight room is usually either overcrowded or virtually empty (there is only one), and there isn't a schedule for sports team so others are bombarded by their takeover. Events and within the cafeteria, students are usually segregated into their teams, then everyone else. Students sparing attend sporting events, especially if they're friends with someone on that team, and when a team is facing its biggest competition. Moreover, I've recently been given the responsibility of the president of the weight room, which we call the Fitness Center, and I'm looking to make significant changes (scheduling, equipment, cleaning materials, entertainment, etc.).
You aren't treated like a number here, like you are at the bigger schools. You form long lasting friendships with a lot of students. Class sizes are small. The professors want to see you succeed and are willing to help. The dorms are ok. The food has gotten better over the last year or so. The athletic facilities are great for a small school and are D2. The school is next to the city of Elkins and is walking distance to restaurants etc.
