Davidson College

Davidson College


Davidson College was founded in 1837 by ministers of the Concord Presbytery.  Its 1,700 students come from almost every state in the nation and many foreign countries.  With a highly selective admissions process and NCAA Division I athletics, Davidson College is a diverse, historical and prestigious campus. 

Davidson College is over 170 years old so there are many buildings and features of the campus that date back to its early days and provide a great history of the school. One of the oldest buildings in the town, Carolina Inn, has been a part of the campus since 1946.  The "Old Quad" is perhaps the most historic part of the campus, containing four of the oldest buildings.  The historic Oak Row and Elm Row, built in 1836-37, were the original dormitories of Davidson.  Eumenean ("Eu") and Philanthropic ("Phi") Halls were built in 1850 and named for secret societies that met there.  The new Chambers building was built in 1929 in the same spot as the old Chambers building, which burnt down in 1921.  With continuing renovations and numerous historical buildings, the Davidson campus is a great mix of a charming past and a promising future.
