Join the Davidson admission team for a workshop series designed to aid your college search and application process. 

Sessions are for high school juniors and seniors.

Each workshop has been designed by a team which may consist of Davidson admissions staff, Davidson students, partners from other institutions, and our high school counseling colleagues. Our goal is to provide information in a broad scope that will serve participants regardless of where they apply. We encourage participants with questions specific to a school's admission process to reach out directly to that institution.

Schedule of Workshops

All sessions will be offered at 7 PM Eastern Time, with the exception of workshops offered to students studying outside of the United States. More information about these sessions is available in the registration portal.
