          • Testimony
            2001-2005, B.A.

            Davidson not only has character, but builds it. A small school where your actions have consequences and rewards, you are expected to act honorably. The Honor Code is not just a saying, it's the core of the school. With that element of trust in place, you are free to test yourself and expand your horizons. The professors are student centered and the college is constantly pushing boundaries and leading by example. Now if only more people in New England knew about it, I could spend less time describing the geography and more time singing its praises!

          • Testimony
            1972-1976, Bachelor of Arts (B.A)

            Small can feel limiting. Small is not for everyone (or for anyone all of the time). But small works for this school to give a strong, focused and unified approach to the teaching and learning. You are taught directly by professors, and know well your fellow students (from whom you learn at least as much) . As a consequence there is a strong community that helps you stay focused on the learning.

          • K
            1981-1985, Bachelor of Arts (B.A)

            Davidson provided me with a well rounded college education, a blessed view of our larger world, reinforcement of my value system, and MOST importantly, lifelong friends. What more could one ask of an undergraduate education!
