    Davidson is known for its strenuous academic curriculum, and it lives up to that reputation. There aren't any joke classes, but every class that I have had has been great. The professors actually do the teaching while they don't at large universities. Every professor is an expert in his or her field and is very intelligent. read full review

    I am a varsity athlete at Davidson. I am not going to lie, it is very difficult, but as it would be a every other school. There is a lot of pressure to do well and at Davidson you surround yourself with people who are extremely driven and know what more or less what they want to do career wise. It can be overwhelming, but more than worth it. The really great thing about Davidson though is you always see a familiar face and it is so easy to make friends outside of sports teams, freshman halls, or other entrance organizations. The people here are so nice and you can feel the passion on the campus, coming from students, faculty, staff, and community members. An enormous amount of people are really invested in the college and it's apparent during everyday life. read full review
