What's the Weather Like?

Tucked between the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina and the picturesque Carolina coastline, Davidson is fortunate to experience all four seasons. With winters cold enough to catch a flurry but mild enough to enjoy the outdoors, and spring and fall seasons that shower our campus in vivid foliage, there's no bad time to experience campus.
