    I absolutely love it here. Everyone is very friendly and being on such a small campus makes you feel popular because you always run into people you know. If you're not into partying then don't party; there are always fun things to do in the Union on the weekends and you will more than likely find people that don't go out every weekend.

    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.
