What Students Are Saying

4.44 Average Rating
Davidson College is in North Carolina about 20 minutes outside of Charlotte and currently holds about 1,800 students. Davidson has one of the smallest Division I athletic programs in the country. And the college prides itself on its renowned Honor Code, that the inclusive community surrounding the college (in the town of Davidson) seems to follow as well.
Student from Columbus, OH
Davidson is a hard school academically, meaning there is no such thing as an easy A. The students at Davidson have a work hard play harder mentality. The teachers are great and easily accessible for the most part.
