On behalf of all of us here at Davidson, Welcome! You’re joining this special place at an exciting time. We’re excited to return to the serendipitous interactions and unyielding connections that make the Davidson experience distinctive and enduring. Thank you for facilitating our return by getting vaccinated against COVID-19. The pandemic revealed the strength and resilience of this community of smart, driven and kind people who live and learn together – students who enjoy tackling unsolved problems, mentors who inspire you to question your assumptions and expand your imagination. As you pursue new activities and build lasting friendships, you’ll discover talents you didn’t know you possessed. Please make the most of your time at Davidson. Immerse yourself in all you do, stretch beyond your comfort zone, and seek to build connections between what you learn and how you see yourself in the world. Davidson is a place of boundless opportunity, a place to discover both who you are and what the world asks of you. Sincerely, Carol Quillen President

Class of 2025, Your class has a special opportunity to make an impact – on campus, in our community and in the world. We all look forward to working with you! I also hope each of you will take risks to learn and grow! Find a mentor who will challenge and support you as you pursue your dreams and goals. Get involved in life outside of class. Exercise thoughtful care of yourself and extend care and respect to others. Revel in everything that make Davidson special: our Honor Code, the beauty of our campus, the diversity of our community, and our history of preparing servant leaders and game changers. Sincerely, Byron P. McCrae Dean of Students Welcome to Davidson! As someone who loves Davidson now, but hated it for at least the first two months, I feel lucky to have the chance to say a few words about your first-year and give you some advice. Coming out of a year and a half of meeting almost no new people, I think you all are coming into college in a time when all of us appreciate connections more than ever. Prop your door open, you can pop your head out into the hallway to meet new people and introduce yourself. Don’t be afraid to sit by yourself or go somewhere on your own. Learning to be okay on your own might be the toughest part of your first year. Friend groups will change, no matter what you think, first-year groups rearrange and rearrange and rearrange. College is hyped up to be the best four years of your life, and for some people it is, but for others it’s not, and that’s perfectly okay. Putting unnecessary pressure to have the best time all the time will not help you find your people. It might take time, but you’ll find your place here, because you’re all meant to be here. Sincerely, Emily Schmitt ’23 Editor

Lula Bell Houston, a 63–year employee of Davidson College, woke up early in the morning everyday to get ready for her day at Davidson. Washing clothes and ironing sheets, Houston’s impact on Davidson expanded past the laundry building. Focusing on the people around her, Houston was known to give expert advice to students during their four years and extend a warm helping hand whenever it was needed. She made Davidson feel like home for many students and her legacy lives on in “Lula Bell’s.”

If you can find a study room, take it immediately. The professors in Wall are some of the nicest on campus — you’ll often find bowls of snacks around the building.

The Davidson Codes

Incoming Wildcats, he Honor Code serves as our collective value system, setting us apart from other colleges and universities across the country. Although it provides us with benefits such as unproctored exams and the ability to leave our belongings on campus, the Honor Code also upholds the overarching theme of communal trust. In the past year, all of us experienced the importance of trust throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and thanks to our collective safety, we were able to keep campus cases to a minimum. This year, we all have the same responsibility to continue strengthening our communal trust by abiding by college regulations, whether they pertain to our collective health or our academic integrity. As Davidson students, we contribute to the success or failure of the Honor Code. While it requires constant effort and attention, the code exists to benefit everyone, ensuring the fair treatment of all students regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, belief system, political affiliation, or other indicator. As incoming students, it is now your responsibility to assume our Honor Code and hold your fellow peers accountable to the same standards. The handbook outlines the code strictly in relation to lying, cheating, and stealing, but I encourage you all to expand the definition to other facets of your lives on campus and beyond. I am confident you all will thrive in this community and uphold the standards that make Davidson such a wonderful place to call home!


Excited to see everything you all accomplish, Kat Soltany ’22 Honor Council Chair

The Honor Code

The Honor Code serves as one of the hallmarks of Davidson College for both academic and daily life. It’s the assurance that you will find your personal belongings where you left them and the privilege to take exams and reviews outside of class. Yet, the Honor Code is much more than a pledge that each of us signs at the beginning of our Davidson careers. It serves as a guiding and unifying force, establishing a community of trust and respect that is essential to the ethos of our college community. The Honor Council process is detailed and specific to each individual student who is reported to have violated the code, allowing each situation to be considered fairly and in its entirety. More information can be found in the Student Handbook.

The Code of Responsibility

Alongside the Honor Code, the Code of Responsibility addresses non-academic issues such as sexual misconduct, alcohol and drug abuse, to name a few. The Code of Responsibility can also be found in the Student Handbook.

Though the more elaborate drinks can get pricey, you can receive a discount if you ask for a mug. Better yet, bring in your own refillable vessel and the regular coffee of the day will cost less than $2 a cup. Nummit also offers Bottomless Mugs for a special subscription price if you’re a frequent coffee drinker.


Though the Town of Davidson does not allow chain restaurants within town limits, if you’re a Starbucks aficionado, there is a Starbucks counter inside the Harris Teeter. It’s a 15-minute walk, but it’s available if you’re craving one of your favorite drinks.


The Double D is a little bit farther away, but not much can beat your favorite drink, even if it tastes a little bit different every time you order it. The Dunkin’ Donuts is about a 10 minute drive, near the Harris Teeter in Cornelius. Davidson runs on Dunkin’.

The first row of parking directly across from Base Belk on Belk lot. These are some of Davidson’s most coveted spaces.

This Sophomore dorm’s official name is “Chidsey Hall,” though many students refer to it as New Dorm for ease.
