The campus at Davis is extremely conservative. No alcohol, smoking etc. No girls in guys dorms and vice versa. There are a lot of rules that are enforced to "protect" the student. A great school, but there needs to be a revision to some of the so called standards.

Since this is a small school there really is not a variety in different teachers. There is one professor for counseling, one for organizational leadership, and so forth. The registration process is easy enough and simple to complete. The curriculum is pretty straight forward too.

My major (organizational leadership) is an easy enough major to complete. The main issue is there is only one professor that teaches all the core requirements, which can get old over time.

The parking at Davis is decent there is a nice slection of different areas.

Helpful Professors – The proffessors are personal, and they truly do care about you as a student!

Transportaion Is Good – Public transportation is really good. There are alot of buses in the area. Also, the college takes people to Walmart on Saturday's.

Night Life – Being a Bible College the night life is not the greatest. Bars are a no go as they are frowned upon, because of drunkenness. Transportation is a little above average as the school will bus you to a couple places and there are also a multiple of students who are kind enough to take you places. Parties happen every once in awhile. Music, food, fun, that's about it unless some people go to the movies or the local pizza place and shoot pool. Underage nightlife isn't to bad there are volleyball nights that people go to as well as soccer.

Gym/Library/Campus Activities – The gym is awesome and open majority of the time. When the gym is closed it is simple to open, contact security and ask the coach to open it, you will be responsible at that time to clean what you have in there and put everything away. The library is awesome and so are the workers, they are friendly and always willing to help. There are a number of book to chose from and also vhs tapes of old school classic Disney cartoons :) Campus activities vary every year as we have different life reps. But I have been satisfied every year with the events.

Health & Safety:
Security and Health – We have students who act as security and they do a great job. There really isn't any crime that happens around campus, except for the causal picking up of lost money ha coins normally:) As far as safety and health the school keeps up with all of that. The most recent thing that needs done in my opinion is the pavement for the parking lot as the flood and rain has caused it to crack and form some pot holes that are dangerous for students not walking on the side walks like they are supposed to. Overall I rate it a 4 of 5 star :)

Much Better Than Living on Campus. There are a lot of reasonable places for rent in this area. Most 2 bedroom apartments average about 500$ a month, which still ends up being substantially less than living on campus each semester. Because there are so many colleges in this area, most landlords are very good with renting to students, and some are willing to give rent reductions during major breaks.

Enforcement Is Sporadic. The rules are reasonable, yet they are only sporadically enforced. It really depends on the mood of the RA, and whether or not they like you as a person. For example: two females break the dress code, one gets written up but the other does not because she roomed with that RA the previous semester. Another example: two males break curfew, but only one gets written up because the other one is the 'superstar' on the basketball team.

Below Average – Soccer and basketball are the main sports offered. The teams are ok if you like to play for fun, but definitely not if you play to win.

There are a lot of restaurants just a few minutes from campus. Good variety with good prices.

Living on campus is a waste of money. No clue about the girls dorms, but the guys dorms are old and worn down. Ceilings leak, and there is no insulation so it is painfully cold in the winter. No idea how it is legal to let people live there. The food (you are obligated to buy a meal package if you live on campus) is garbage, and not good enough to feed to dogs let alone people.
Recent Alumnus 2011-10-25T22:20:51Z
There is no athletic center (aside from the basketball court). The library is small and under stocked, and there are very few places for students to hang out, besides places open to the public. Impossible to find quiet places to study.

No one is turned away from Davis College, and you can pick any major.

Poor Selection – On campus there is a cafe and a cafeteria. The cafe is not included with the room and board fee. The food is average, but horribly overpriced and there is a painfully small selection. The cafeteria food is included in room and board, but the food is disgusting. The cafe closes at 10pm, and the cafeteria is only open for an hour at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you get hungry between meal times or late at night then you are out of luck.

While the people who work in financial aid are very friendly, they are completely incompetent. The financial aid offered by the school is non-existent. You will be lucky to have 10% of your tuition covered, regardless of GPA, SAT scores, or national honor society.

They Go Out of Their Way to Get You Here – Davis Financial Aid offices went out of their way to find me money so that I could attend school.

For How Big It Is, Excellent! Davis College is a small school and only has enough athletes to have two major sports. Soccer and Basketball for both men and women. The programs are winning programs and our men's basketball team are the defending national champions!

All are welcome and included at school. No one is excluded and everyone has an equal opportunity.

I Feel Safe – I feel very safe on campus. There have never been any problems.

Printer Access – There is only one printer on campus, and if there are several people waiting to print, then you are out of luck. However, if you do not have a personal laptop, it is not a huge problem because there are two computers in the lounge and then the computer lap in the library.

Snows and Rains a Lot – Since we are located in central New York it does snow a lot during the winter months, but we do have an amazing grounds team that shovels the sidewalks and clears the parking lots. We also have a good town road service that is always quick to clear all of the main roads. Classes hardly ever get cancelled which can be annoying sometimes, but sometimes the professors don't want to be there anymore than you do and let you go really early. When its not snowing it does rain a lot during the spring and some summer months but it's also not a constant down pour.

Parking on campus is going to be the least of your worries. There are always spots available and they are so close to every building on campus. There is no charge for parking on campus, no passes and no fines either. As a freshman you are more than welcome to bring your own car but you don't have to since everything is extremely close to campus and there is good public transportation and friendly people on campus who are always more than willing to give you a ride somewhere.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
