Davidson Day Hhigh School Case Study

Four years ago I made a decision to attend Davidson Day HIgh School (DDS). I was choosing between two schools in the area. I made a list of positive/negatives with each school, then waited for some sort of sign. I went to the Charlotte Knights Baseball game, that’s when it became obvious what to do. You could say it was a coincidence or simply ironic... while watching the next player walk up to bat, on the back of his shirt read “Davidson 22,” my lucky number and the name of my prospective school.

For example, there is a writing lab, technology support, career exploration and a counseling center. Most importantly, college professors are available to help and share their experiences with me. If given the opportunity to be a student at Appalachian State University, I will bring the same friendly attitude I received when I took my campus tour of ASU. On campus, I will be the one wearing ASU t-shirts, working with a study group or exercising in the Recreation Center. Of course this is just the start of what ASU has to offer, my list of positive qualities
