Visit a Class

Davidson's liberal arts education is characterized by close relationships between students and faculty, deep discussion, and significant collaboration. One of the best ways to experience this before you enroll is to visit a Davidson class. 

How to Attend a Class

The courses listed below have been pre-approved by their professors for prospective high school juniors and seniors to visit from February through mid-April, 2015.

Before attending a class, click on the course name to check the syllabus, or visit the Admission Office to check the syllabi binders located in our lobby. These syllabi enable you to become familiar with the courses you choose to visit. Please be sure to check the syllabus for dates of reviews (exams), quizzes, class presentations, movie viewings, or special class events, as courses are not available for visitation on these days. Some faculty members request that you email them before attending the class.

On the day of class, arrive a few minutes early, introduce yourself to the professor, and stay until the class is over.

Spring 2015

*Please note: All course syllabi have been posted as PDF or Word documents.
