What you might not know is that Davidson is giving any student who wants to go to the game in Detroit a bus ticket, two nights in a hotel, and a ticket to the game. They can do that since tuition is $41,000 per year right now. Like the laundry service, it's really more "included" than "free." Anyway, if you don't believe me, read the ESPN article my brother just sent me.
And since I'm lauding its manifold benefits, let me mention the things that impress me about Davidson (I must admit that basketball isn't very high on the list).
- No loans in financial aid packages, which means that if you qualify for financial aid, they'll meet all of it with grants and on-campus jobs
- Average class size is 15
- 91% of students live on campus
- 70% of students study abroad during their 4 years
- exams are self-scheduled and unproctored
