Want to make your visit an overnight visit?

The overnight visit is your way to extend Panther Preview and experience residence life at Davenport University. Students will be paired with an on-campus student host to stay the night with, and they will get to live a day in the life of a Panther. All attendees will get to shadow a class required for all Davenport students: the Achieving Career and Education Success course, otherwise known as ACES. They will also get to participate in a variety of activities and ice breakers at the Student Activity Center, have dinner in residence facility South Hall and enjoy a bonfire (weather permitting). The next day, students will have breakfast in South Hall and join the Panther Preview event at 9 am.

When: January 24th, 2020
Where: W.A. Lettinga Campus
Time: Begins at 12:00 pm on January 24th, 2020 and continues until 3:00 pm on January 25th, 2019
