Welcome new students and new Davidson families! We are so excited to welcome you to the Davidson community.

During New Student Orientation, incoming students have the opportunity to spend time with lots of people who will be integral to their time at Davidson. Students will learn about the college and its values, important resources, the town of Davidson, and hopefully something new about themselves.

New Student Orientation is required for all new students. Parents and families are invited to attend in order to meet their student's academic adviser, hall counselor and roommate as well as to learn about how they can best support their student during their time at Davidson.
