I would say my overall experience was great. I experienced a family feel from all
The staff and students on campus. Also support from them as well. I like the support my professors give me to work hard and do good. The only thing I want to change is that maybe they would have a football team!

Application was super easy! I have yet to start classes but they seem like a great college with great opportunity. Any questions I needed answered they took care of right away.
Davis & Elkins is great school, everyone there are super nice, they do what they can to make the school affordable and put everything into their students. The school has small class sizes, professors work with students, and develop personal relationships with them,
