Sharing Knowledge: A Resource List


As my days dwindle down at Davidson, I think about how much I have grown, the adventures I have had, and the incredible resources that are offered here. To be frank, Davidson is an immensely privileged institution, overflowing with resources. With 70 percent of students coming to Davidson from the top 20 percent income bracket and a median family income of $213,900, this is an institution of great wealth and power. Unfortunately, I have found that some students, especially those from low-income backgrounds, such as myself, are unaware of the sheer number of resources available to them. With privilege, comes a great responsibility. For this reason, I would like to share some of the resources I have used during my Davidson career with the hope of showcasing the abundance of opportunities that often go overlooked.
