#WhyDavidson: Looking back on my past four years at Davidson and all the incredible experiences I got to have from studying abroad, to a summer internship in D.C., and consistently working on meaningful and relevant coursework so many areas of study, I am still most grateful for the community of trust and support that Davidson fosters. No matter what grade I was in I found that Davidson staff, faculty members, alumni, and students were all cheering me on, supporting me in any way they could, and constantly working to improve themselves in order to be more welcoming to anyone who comes to campus. While I am sad my Davidson career as a student is over, I know I am a part of the Wildcat family for life!

The sense of community Davidson has is one of the best I have experienced, even when just visiting as a senior in high school. I knew that Davidson would find all the ways it could support me and cheer me on during my time here, but I also know that the community of Davidson is always with me even post-grad. Oh, and the breakfast sandwiches! 

Fun Fact: During my four years at Davidson, I have been the only student named Veronica.

#WhyDavidson: As a nervous high school senior, I had the opportunity to do a weekend visit to Davidson and stay overnight at a senior apartment. When I arrived, the apartment’s four occupants simultaneously set aside their work and started asking me about my hobbies and goals and passions. Their intentionality and warmth reverberated through my visit and prepared me for the openness of the Davidson community that continues to be one of my favorite things about the school.

Fun Fact: I’ve somewhat less-than-legally high-fived a sea turtle, and I’ve gotten stuck on Six Flags Great America’s “Giant Drop.” I don’t have too many “hidden talents” but I do know a weird amount of movie quotes.

Favorite Bite to Eat in the Davidson Area:  I don’t want to sound hyperbolic, but the Spicy Chicken Quesadilla at Davis Café is a culinary work of art and deserves to be displayed in various museums.
