College review by Lisa Bleich
Davidson is a classic, highly select Liberal Arts College. The campus is expansive and very beautiful. There is a quaint main street that caters to the college. Charlotte is about thirty minutes away. Two distinct qualities about Davidson are the honor code and Division I sports. It is unusual to have a highly intellectual, small liberal arts college coupled with a highly competitive Division I sports team.
The students have a true love of learning and are intellectually curious. We spoke with a couple of science professors who where extremely enthusiastic and passionate about teaching. Davidson is a good school for an intellectually curious student who enjoys an unstructured learning environment, but also enjoys sports and intellectual debates. While 50% of the student body participates in Greek life, this number is misleading because students do not need to rush to become members. There are also eating houses for the women in lieu of sororities.
