The Senior Overnight can be immeasurably helpful in the college search process. In addition to giving prospective students a look at Davidson life outside of college business hours, the overnight experience can be instrumental in connecting prospectives with current Davidsonians and in giving students a look behind the Davidson screen.
What's it like to be a first-year student at Davidson? You could attend a concert or lecture in the Union, enjoy a meal in Vail Commons, or sit in on a study group or student organization meeting. Be sure to peruse our campus calendar for events happening during your overnight stay.
Many Davidson students cite the Senior Overnight as the single most important factor in their decision to enroll at the college.
You may request a Senior Overnight using our Visit Request Form. If you need assistance, please contact our Visit Coordinator (704-894-2679). For Fall overnights, please submit your request 3 business days in advance.
