As one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges, Denison University boasts generations of students who can attest to its effect on their lives. Each would cite a different reason. And they’d all be right, because Denison’s liberal arts tradition and residential community create a college of endless personal possibilities. At Denison, students have to step up-there’s no hiding in the back of a 300-seat lecture hall, no anonymity, no flying under the radar. They matter as individuals, and they are prepared for lives of consequence by the best faculty-professors who know their stuff, know their students’ names, and know how to inspire great things. And learning reaches outside the classrooms, labs, and studios, into the halls where students live, because this is a residential campus community, where students live and learn together, and where they embrace ideals of integrity, intellect, diversity, and respect for each other and the environment
