K******n from Boulder, Colorado

I graduated from Denison in 1992, and now have 1 in college and another looking. Makes my perspective unusual. I have so many life long friends from Denison. If you see someone on the street, in your profession, in your neighborhood, you want to reach out and connect. It was difficult while I was there, many kids were from the East, and I was a Minnesota girl. But the lifelong connections mean WAY more, 26 years later.

Denison is all about relationships with faculty and opportunities to excel. Classes are small and each student has a personal academic advisor. This is a great atmosphere for students who want to grow academically and intellectually. Professors are accessible and the curriculum is challenging. Denison is tanked in the top 100 on the Forbes list. The info for Denison on this site is out of date. Here is a link to info for the incoming class of 2020. http://denison.edu/news-events/press/66905
