New Academic Building

Building Fly-Through
Corridor Fly-Through

This exciting new facility requires an investment of more than $74 million, and we are counting on the generosity of alumni, parents and friends to make this new structure a focal point of Davidson's efforts to reimagine the liberal arts. The video is an artist rendering of potential schematic design.
