Davidson College Top Questions

Why did you decide to go to this school?


I'll be honest. I visited Davidson, and I hated it. Everyone was a rich white kid and while I liked my host student, many of the prospective students I was with weren't my favorite. Despite this, I loved the classes I had sat in on, loved the campus, loved the location, and I loved the graduates I met. Every single graduate of Davidson I knew was a successful, kind, and model individual. If they went to Davidson and came out the way they did, the place couldn't be all bad. With that idea in mind, I put Davidson at the top of my list. Luckily, I quickly learned that my stereotype of Davidson's students was quite off and now many of my closest friends are fellow students. And the obnoxious prospective students? Davidson wasn't for them.
