Davidson Investment and Financial Association (DIFA)
The Davidson Investment and Financial Association (DIFA) manages over $700,000 of the college's endowment. The association was founded on the principles of education and the college's need for an effective and unique way to educate the student body about the stock market. The portfolio is entirely student run and focuses only on investing in public traded equities. The Association is composed of a CFO, COO, CCO, Treasurer, and three Sector Heads, with junior members able to join the sector of their choice. The club welcomes all students, regardless of financial knowledge or background. We only ask that members have curiosity to learn and explore the world of finance and investing.
The Pre-Business Society is a network of Davidson students pursuing careers in finance, consulting, marketing, and entrepreneurship. We provide a forum for discussion among students with similar goals and aim to provide educational and networking opportunities for members. We also offer career preparation assistance and mentorship.
The Pre-Dental Society aims to promote the awareness of dentistry as a career and to provide aid and support to pre-dental students at Davidson.
The society educates interested students about legal issues, pursuing law school admission, and careers in the legal field. It arranges visits to law schools, invites legal professionals and educators to campus, and organizes affordable LSAT preparation courses.
The purpose of the Pre-Nursing Society is to motivate and supply a supportive network for students interested in nursing at Davidson as well as support in the admission process to professional nursing school. This society encourages students to use the knowledge gained at Davidson to benefit the community and nursing profession.
