Summer Admission Ambassadors

In addition to giving campus tours throughout the summer, our Summer Admission Ambassadors are eager to answer your questions and provide a current student perspective on the Davidson experience. We encourage you to review the ambassadors' academic and co-curricular interests and send them emails with any questions you may have.

Tip for Visiting Students: Definitely check out the town of Davidson while you're here! It was a big reason I chose Davidson; it's just a great place to be.

Tip for Visiting Students: Get in contact with current students and ask them a lot of questions so you can fully understand what it's like to be a Davidson student. Also, come back in the fall for an overnight visit, and spend the night in a dorm–this is the best way to completely immerse yourself in student life and learn about Davidson from the student perspective.
