Welcome new students and new Davidson families! We are so excited to welcome you to the Davidson community.
During New Student Orientation, incoming students have the opportunity to spend time with lots of people who will be integral to their time at Davidson. Students will learn about the college and its values, important resources, the town of Davidson, and hopefully something new about themselves.
New Student Orientation is required for all new students. Parents are invited to attend in order to meet their student's academic adviser, hall counselor and roommate as well as to learn about how they can best support their student during their time at Davidson.
Thursday, Aug. 16–Sunday, Aug. 19
New Student and Parent Orientations for the 2018-19 school year will officially begin on Thursday, Aug. 16 at 8:30 a.m. Optional move-in for new students will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 15, 6-9 p.m.
The 2018 orientation schedules for students and parents are taking shape and will be finalized over the course of the coming months. In the meantime, please view the 2017 orientation schedule for an idea of what to expect.
Please note: The Parent Handbook (PDF) is annually reviewed, revised, and updated by individual departments.
