Since 1933, Davenport College (referred to as D’Port by its residents) has been the collegiate household of people such as George Bush (Sr. and W.), Stephen Schwarzman, and Samantha Power. Currently, Davenport holds the Gimbel Cup (awarded to the Residential College with the best overall average GPA) and the Sheffield Prize Cup (awarded to the Residential College with the highest standing in scholarship in science, mathematics and engineering). D’Port’s the only Residential College to ever earn all three Cups in the same year–the Gimbel, the Sheffield Prize, and the Tyng Cup (for highest standing in intramural sports)–and this was just three years ago. So, what awesome things are happening in Davenport this week?
