I will always be proud to tell people I went to Davidson, even when all this attention from basketball is over and people go back to being unfamiliar with my school. It's a wonderful community, the honor code is taken very seriously and the professors really care about you. My personal story of why I came to Davidson is also pretty interesting: When I was making my decision, a family friend traveled back to Davidson for his class reuinion. Having graduated with the former president of the college, this man told President Vaught about me and my college dilemma. A few days later, President Vaught called me at home! And when I wasn't there, he called again! He asked if I had any questions and if there was any way he could help me make my decision. I knew then and there that Davidson was the place for me if even the college president was willing to go out of his way for one single student.
My favorite class was Issues in Reproductive Medicine. Despite the fact that I am a Spanish major, the class really opened my eyes to some incredibly fascinating issues. As I prepare for law school, I hope to go into reproductive and healthcare law in order to pursue the interest sparked by this particular course.
I think the school and the student body try very hard to make our campus a friendly environment for racial and sexual minorities. In general, i think the student body probably has a liberal majority, but there certainly are plenty of conservatives due to our presbyterian roots and the economic status of some students.
