            1992-1996, BA

            A truly amazing college experience!

            Denison is a close knit community that provides overwhelming support for its students from the classroom to the dorm room and beyond. My four years there were filled with exploration across my many interests, and I will always cherish my time there.

          • Testimony
            1965-1969, B.A.

            It was 4 of the best years of my life.

            It is an unbelievably beautiful campus, almost magical. It is small enough that you can get to know just about everyone in your class if you want to. We studied hard and then played hard on the weekends. Classes can be intense, and then the walk across campus to the next one refreshes your mind set.
