How is Davidson College Division 1?

I always wondered how Davidson College was Division 1 also. The only reason I know is because I played college ball. The reason they are Division 1 is because they go by how much money the college gives to recruit people. They dont go by how big the school is. There could be a school that has 500 kids or less be D-1 just cause of all the recruiting they send out. In High School is goes by how many kids you have in the school. College goes by how much they give recruiting, I hope this helped, and made sense. Thanks a lot
