FCRS(Faculty Classification and Review System) trending idea

Based on my undergraduate study til now, I found that the education quality is not directly related to how good a college overall is, but it's directly related to faculty and students themselves. They determined the education experience. The schools around the world always want to classify and select the suitable students to admit. However, different professor also has different teaching style. A 'correct' professor will... more »

IN-PERSON Commencement

I have many ideas for how Davidson College could carefully and successfully implement an IN-PERSON commencement (including immediate family members) for the Class of 2021:

Using Richardson Stadium - set up chairs 6 feet apart on the football field for graduates to sit while immediate family members are designated a clearly labeled spot in the bleachers. These spots can be coordinated as follows: the graduate provides... more »

Brainstorm List of Ideas

There could be a petting zoo, with camels and rhinos, and it could be outside, covid-safe, and number restrictive.

Senior Basketball Attendance

The Davidson basketball season will always be a highlight in the jam-packed spring semester. Thankfully for the team, there have been minimal postponements thus far.

Picnic

Seniors could sign up for different areas for an outdoor picnic so that we could respect the guidelines that limit participants to 100 people and be spread out, yet everyone interested could participate. There could be picnics on any of the green spaces around campus (Chambers Lawn, the Old Tennis Court, the IMACs, etc.) and participants could arrive in a staggered way and pick up boxed lunches.
