Wildcats Around World: Connect with Us

With the challenges of international travel in mind, Davidson has created tailored programming for students across the globe who wish to learn more about the Davidson experience.

We encourage international students to connect with Davidson and explore what life is like in our community. 

All international students are welcome to participate in any visit opportunities offered by Davidson. Learn more about all of Davidson's virtual and in-person visit programs.

Virtual Visit Opportunities for International Students

If you live or study outside of the United States, we encourage you to join us for any of the following:

International Student Information Sessions: These 45-minute sessions, hosted by an international admission counselor and a current Davidson student, are a great way to learn more about Davidson.

One-on-One Zoom Conversations: Designed for international students that have questions not covered in any of our other sessions or for those who wish to connect directly with Kaye-Lani Laughna, Director of International Admission and Financial Aid.

Fifteen liberal arts and sciences colleges across the U.S. are coming together monthly to offer international students fifteen minutes of tips for the college application process followed by an hour-long virtual college fair.

Sasa (hi), I am Sam. I am from Githunguri, Kenya, north of Nairobi. I am planning to major in Economics and potentially Finance with support from the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies (yep, I might create my own major!). 

First, Davidson is amazing! If you are looking for a personalized college experience with professors, staff and students who truly care about you, then Davidson must be on your college list. At Davidson, I volunteer in the local community as a Bonner Scholar, I am part of the African Students’ Association, Black Student Coalition, an Orientation Leader, Admission Tour Guide, and your international admission student contact.

Join us on Wednesdays for an international information session. I’ll be there, eagerly waiting to meet you.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or comments at sawaithira@davidson.edu.
