Welcome to the City

Our fall Welcome to the City events provide a social networking opportunity for alumni, parents and friends in our largest chapters, and welcome alumni who have recently moved to these regions. Davidson staff from our College Relations and Career Development teams attend these events and help to facilitate connections among alumni and between the alumni and the college.

If you did not receive an email invitation to an event but would like to attend, please email the Office of Alumni and Family Engagement at with your name, class year if applicable, and the event you plan to attend. Please notify us at least five days in advance of the event when possible.

Crowdsourced Guides

Alumni, parents and friends have created these crowdsourced guides to their region, intended to help alumni new to the area navigate their new surroundings (PDFs). If you don't see one for your city but would like to volunteer to put one together, let us know!

If you have any questions about our Welcome to the City event series, please contact your chapter president or Ashley Neff in the Office of Alumni and Family Engagement at
