We are delighted you are planning to experience Davidson. A typical visit includes a campus tour and an information session. To get started, choose the date and time of your visit and schedule your tour and information session.
Davidson campus tours last 75 minutes and are led by current students. Our guides are energetic ambassadors trained to show you the college through their own experiences. They are honest about Davidson life and opportunities and are happy to answer your questions at all points along the way.
Tour routes will lead visitors through:
Our admission staff members will help refine your understanding of the Davidson experience, sharing with you our admission policies, the college application process, and information about the Davidson Trust. You may choose to attend a group information session or an individual information session. Both sessions give students and families a comprehensive sense of Davidson and all it offers.
These sessions are best suited for prospective students visiting Davidson for the first time or for students just beginning the college search process. They cover a wide range of topics and are designed to give you a broad sense of the college. They are not standard, PowerPoint-style presentations, but dynamic sessions tailored to the interests and concerns of each audience. You will be able to ask specific questions of the presenter and learn from the questions asked by other students and families. Most group information sessions will occur before your tour.
Please note that Davidson does not offer evaluative admission interviews.
Individual information sessions are best suited for prospective students making repeat visits to Davidson or for high school juniors or seniors with specific questions that haven't been addressed on your initial visit to campus. These sessions are tailored to each student. Families will have the opportunity to ask specific questions or voice sensitive concerns.
During the academic year, individual information sessions are led by senior admission fellows–seniors at Davidson who are trained as adjunct admission counselors. Senior fellows know both the Davidson student experience and the admission process.
Available times for individual information sessions are limited.
Our information sessions and tours for high school groups are designed specifically for upper classmen. If you are planning to visit campus with more than 10 students, please contact Michele Trovato, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone, at 704-894-2679.
