Davidson College Stepping Up For Students

DAVIDSON, N.C. -- One of Davidson College's famous perks is the free laundry service for students. Now the school is adding another freebie: watching the Wildcats play in the NCAA tournament's round of 16.

The school's board of trustees set up a fund Wednesday to pay for any student wishing to travel to Detroit to see Davidson play Wisconsin in the Midwest Regional semifinals. Students will get free bus transportation, two nights lodging and a ticket to Friday's game.

Behind sophomore sensation Stephen Curry, Davidson upset Gonzaga and Georgetown last week for the school's first NCAA tournament wins in 39 years.

While the drop-off laundry service and trip to Detroit are free, annual tuition at the exclusive, liberal-arts school is just under $41,000 a year.

    Actually, the trustees made the offer to EVERY STUDENT (and publicized it everywhere as such), but they have now realized they don't have enough seats on the bus for everyone. As a student who was told we could all go for free, to now hear only some will go is infuriating. Someone needs to let the press know that Davidson isn't actually doing what they've publicized that they would.
