Through identity and affinity organizations, students can closely connect to their own backgrounds, as well as to the backgrounds of the students around them, through a vast array of clubs, organizations, and leadership opportunities. To that end, the college supports a number of student-led organizations that promote advocacy and acceptance of its students, faculty, and staff as well as members of the greater community.

This page is just a sampling of the many clubs and organizations active at Davidson. Members of the Davidson community may view all organizations on WildcatSync. Students may also work with the Student Activities Office to launch new clubs and organizations.

Black Femmes at Davidson

No demographic of people can understand black women like black women. Oftentimes the black people in each grade are dominated by black men. The combination of misogyny and racism that defines black women’s unique experiences at PWIs. From several conversations we have had with black women in the class of 2022, being black and a woman at Davidson can be an isolating experience. This group aims to eliminate these sentiments through informal bonding events such as sleepovers, home cooked Saturday dinners, museum excursions, mentorship sessions to share PWI experiences and support one another, movie trips about the black diaspora, and more.

(BSC) Black Student Coalition

The Black Student Coalition is open to every person on Davidson's campus. Our mission focuses on supporting the core values of unity, dedication, and love within our membership with a prime focus on uplifting the Black community.

Fashion Club

So often young kids feel obliged to conform and dress in a way different from their normal choice of wear. It is imperative to understand that the most cardinal opinion is own. As long as you’re happy with the clothes you choose to wear, that is all that matters. Wear it with confidence. Fashion Club seeks to uplift its peers in hopes of increasing self-confidence. Fashion Club also wishes to assist kids in need of clothing by hosting various fundraisers to raise money and uphold clothing drives. Lastly, Fashion Club will host an annual fashion show to showcase Davidson Fashion!
