A Year in Review with Gerard Dash

2nd annual Dinner at Davidson

Last year, The Office of Admission and Financial Aid interviewed students participating in the 1st annual Dinner at Davidson, a student-run fundraising initiative to support Davidson’s generous need-based financial aid packages.

This past weekend was the 2nd annual Dinner at Davidson, a wild success! Students raised $20,000 to benefit the trust. The college recently posted several podcasts from the event on Davidson’s iTunes U page. We encourage you to check them out.
