Located about 20 minutes from Charlotte, Davidson is a selective liberal arts college much like Amherst or Williams, only larger, and without the snow.  But it offers an astounding selection of […]

It’s small (less than 1,000 undergrads) and close to a large city (Atlanta) that has many other colleges. Both campuses are quite attractive. Agnes Scott’s […]
