Worst Of

  1. 1
    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.
  2. 2
    The food is terribly average and repetitive. You will get sick of it after a few weeks.
  3. 3
    The printing allowance. Not being able to print as much as you want starts to get inconvenient, especially when you reach upper-level classes.
  4. 4
    Sweaty dorm parties start to get old, very quickly.
  5. 5
    The bubble of Denison. Sometimes you forget there is actually another world beyond the campus of Denison. Plus, you'll have a guarantee run-in with one of your awkward hookups. It is a small campus.
  6. 6
    Walking up the hill after eating a nice dinner in town. Get ready for stomach cramps.
  7. 7
    Figuring out how to dress for the constantly changing weather. When you wake up, it will be very very cold, by noon it will be unbearably hot, and it will probably rain a few times in between.
  8. 8
    The dorms are extremely average. Prepare for communal bathrooms until you are a junior.
  9. 9
    The workload is pretty significant. Be prepared to work very hard every day all week and even on the weekend. You will always have work to do.
  10. 10
    The lack of spaces to study in the library
