What Students Are Saying

Visit! Ask as many questions as you can to as many students as possible- don't be shy!

Students should go and visit the school themselves.
Nadin from Los Angeles, CA
Come to a Decision Davidson session and stay with a student host overnight. It is the best way to get a feel for how the school is.
Andrew from Charlotte, NC
I suggest you really figure out what college atmosphere you want. Davidson has a very unique perspective on the education process and connection with its students. It's a very special place to be, and I'm honored to be a part of it. However, the small size of the school and the town itself is definitely something to consider when stepping onto campus. Definitely take an official tour and try to get into a few classes. The best idea would be to do the prospective student overnights, that way you can get a feel of what a day in the life of a Davidson student is!

1. Go into your freshman year prepared for the work load
2. Use other students advice for what class to take and what not to take
3. Make friends
4. Talk with your roommate outside of the room
5. Be open to new things
Jamie Johnson
Most students at Davidson excelled above and beyond in high school. My tip is just to keep working hard. Davidson is not easy and you need to remember that it takes a lot of work to do well, but if you put in the time and effort you will do just fine. Also, don't hesitate to talk with the professors, they are very willing to help.
