Tour and Information Sessions
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:
- Historic areas of campus and Chambers lawn
- Academic buildings
- The E.H. Little Library
- The Alvarez College Union
- The Union Café and Vail Commons dining spaces
- A first-year residence hall
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, if you are a senior, a Senior to Senior session. Both sessions give students and families a comprehensive sense of Davidson and all it offers.
Group Information Sessions
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.
Senior-to-Senior sessions are available for high school seniors who are considering applying or have applied to Davidson. These sessions are tailored to each student allowing students to ask specific questions or voice sensitive concerns.
During the academic year, Senior-to-Senior sessions are led by Senior Admission Fellows-Davidson seniors who are trained as adjunct admission counselors. Senior Fellows know both the Davidson student experience and the admission process. Available times for Senior-to-Senior sessions are limited. Registration will open mid- to late-August.
Please note that Davidson does not offer evaluative admission interviews.
High School Group Visits
Our information sessions and tours for high school groups (more than 10 students) are designed specifically for upper classmen (high school juniors and seniors). If you are planning to visit campus with more than 10 students, please contact Michele Trovato, at firstname.lastname@example.org, and provide the name of your high school or community-based organization, total number of students (max of 35) and chaperones, graduation year of the students, and the date and time that you wish to visit (we have two school-group visit times per weekday: 11 a.m.-12:45 p.m., or 3-4:45 p.m.). If we are able to accommodate your group, a formal confirmation will be sent.
