Senior Overnight

The Senior Overnight is available to current high school seniors who are interested in a more in-depth Davidson community experience. An overnight visit can help connect you with current students, as well as give you the opportunity to explore campus outside of a traditional tour.

Make the Most of Your Visit

Once you are on campus, the experience is yours to create. While no formal itinerary is planned, you are free to explore those activities that are of most interest to you. Please refer to our Campus Calendar to find out what events are happening during your stay. Davidson is a welcoming community, so be assured that you do not need to feel intimidated by going to events on your own or with newly made friends. The following outline is helpful for planning purposes:

  • 5:30 p.m. - Arrive at Knobloch Campus Center to check in and store luggage.
  • 6 p.m. - Dinner as a group at Vail Commons (our treat).
  • 7-9:30 p.m. - Explore campus on your own or complete homework.
  • 9:30-10 p.m. - Host matching will be conducted by the Overnight Team.
  • 8 a.m. (following morning) - Official Senior Overnight concludes, although you will have campus event options, such as a class observation, attend an information session and campus tour, or our Day @ Davidson events on Sept. 28 and Nov. 2.

What to Bring

You will be hosted by a current Davidson student, most likely in their first or second year at Davidson. We recommend you bring the following items with you:

  • Sleeping bag and a pillow (Davidson will provide a sleeping pad)
  • Clothes for the following day, toiletries, a towel
  • Money for breakfast and snacks

If you are flying, we encourage you to bring a travel-size pillow and blanket. Davidson has a limited number of sleeping bags available that you may reserve in advance.
