Best ThingsMore . . .

  • The concerts and comedy shows in the Roost
  • All of the amazing study abroad opportunities. Denison makes it so easy to study wherever you desire.
  • The liberal arts education as a whole. Being well-rounded in more than one subject is something to be proud of!
  • The fall season. All the leaves changing colors is seriously incredible.

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.
  • Sweaty dorm parties start to get old, very quickly.
