Access Davidson: October 16-18, 2022

Access Davidson is a selective college visit program designed for high school seniors from historically excluded racial and ethnic groups, those who are first in their family to attend college and students from rural or low-income backgrounds. 

The program is open to students living and attending high school in the United States and Puerto Rico. Students who have not been on an official visit to campus will be prioritized for participation.

As COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines allow, Access Davidson will be held on campus Sunday, October 16 through Tuesday, October 18, 2022. Davidson will cover the cost of transportation to and from campus, meals and overnight accommodations for program participants.

  • Learn about the diversity, equity, and inclusion work happening on campus
  • Hear from those leading Davidson’s affinity student organizations

Access Davidson showed me the true character of the community. Students who were once complete strangers took the time to answer my questions and share their own personal experiences with me. Now, those same students are individuals I see every day and have become my friends. The friendliness, honesty and eagerness sincerely describes the community.”
