Believing Everyone Should Try (BEST)

Volunteers are paired one-on-one with physically and/or developmentally challenged youth to take lessons in a variety of recreational activities, such as soccer and dance. Sessions take place once a week for about an hour.

Davidson Perspectives

This organization provides an enjoyable and accessible opportunity for students to engage in meaningful conversation with other students, based on nothing more than being a Davidson student. This will promote a deeper, more holistic understanding of the Davidson Experience, beyond the groups we associate with leading to action prompted by awareness of campus-wide options rather than only the options of groups.


This organization sets up a casual pop-up store in which the Davidson community provides clothes and have people stop by to see if they are interested in buying anything.
