D&E is a small liberal arts college where the student/faculty ratio is 13:1. Students can select from over 30 majors and pre-professional programs that allow them to study in depth over an extended period of time, while at the same time selecting classes from different disciplines.
A private college of liberal arts and professional studies, Davis & Elkinss values curiosity and thoughtfulness, while fostering social, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being. Toward those ends, the College provides a friendly and supportive environment for curious, engaged, and freethinking students of diverse backgrounds. We emphasize hands-on, experiential learning through internships, practica, service projects, field research, travel and study abroad programs, and Winter Term classes that explore experimental subjects in unexpected locales. Some of our finest students arrive without direction only to find their path at D&E, thanks to the opportunities for intellectual growth that abound on our campus. These opportunities extend beyond the classroom. As one of the Easts premier mountain colleges, D&E offers unparalleled access to winter sport centers and other forms of extracurricular recreation: camping, biking, canoeing, hiking, skiing, and snowboarding. Safe and supportive, stimulating and friendly, Davis & Elkins College encourages students to approach their adventure in education as a journey of self-discovery.
