Volunteers and staff from the Office of Alumni and Family Engagement coordinate more than 100 events annually across the country in 40+ chapters.
These gatherings allow you to connect with other alumni, families and friends and stay informed about current happenings at Davidson.
Chapter Leadership in Your Area Contact the chapter leadership in your area.
Chapters are comprised of alumni, parents of current Davidson students, and parents and friends of the last five years. You automatically become a member of a region, and therefore a chapter, based on the primary mailing address that we have on file for you. If you would like to check your assigned region or explore adding a secondary assigned region to your profile, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The number of events a chapter holds is typically proportional to the number of alumni, families and friends in that chapter. Your chapter leadership team would love to hear from you if you have ideas or would like to get involved!
Signature Chapter Events
Chapters receive support from the college in planning these signature events:
- Davidson Network Night
- Men's Basketball Events and Tournament Watch Parties
- Davidson Volunteer Week
- Faculty on the Road: faculty lectures and conversations (annually in our larger chapters; on a rotating basis in our smaller chapters)
- Presidential Visits: currently in our last phase of Game Changers campaign events
Other chapter events are planned by chapter leadership and are typically cost-neutral (e.g. a potluck, a play or professional sporting event for which chapter members purchase their own tickets, a holiday party or reception welcoming incoming Davidson students from the area held at a chapter member's home).
Host an Event
If you live in an area without a chapter but would like to host an event, we'd love to hear your idea! Please fill this form out at least 4 weeks in advance of your event so we can evaluate your request. If you live in an area with an active chapter send your idea directly to your chapter president for consideration.

Crowdsourced City Guides
Alumni, parents and friends have created these crowdsourced guides to their region, intended to help alumni new to the area navigate their new surroundings (PDFs). If you don't see one for your city but would like to volunteer to put one together, let us know!
