Worst ThingsMore . . .

  • After big events, members of Greek life tend to drive their cars around campus and honk. This can get extremely annoying, especially if you are trying to do work.
  • The food is terribly average and repetitive. You will get sick of it after a few weeks.
  • The printing allowance. Not being able to print as much as you want starts to get inconvenient, especially when you reach upper-level classes.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Denison is a 4 year residency school, so all students live on campus. The only exception are a hand-full of student thats live within a certain mile radius away from school, even then some of those students decide to live on campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: If you get tired of the dining halls many other eating options are not far from you. The only downside is having to walk up that big hill, but you get to burn the calories!

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Denison recently changed from Sodexo to Bon Appetit, which is just slightly an upgrade. After the first week or two you will basically have the lunch and dinner options memorized. The best places to eat on campus are Slayter and Huffman.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Even if some of the students do not accept ones diversity they tend to stay away and not cause problems.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety and security are very important to Denison. This past semester many security cameras were installed due to the fact that they are needed and a good use.
