There were three such events during August and September, one each for Science; Humanities and Social Science; and Creative Writing and Fine Arts. There are arrays of posters in Curtis Veggie for the first two, and a presentation hour at Mulberry House for the last, they are open to all students, faculty, and staff. The attendees learn from the Summer Scholars, who are there to explain their work, but perhaps more importantly—the Scholars themselves learn by going through the process of explaining their research.
In the summer of 2010, a trio of Denison students spent a month living with families in rural China. They hosted clean-water workshops, gave books about the subject to the local library, and donated special water buckets and disinfectants to the residents and schools. And in doing so they gave an entire village the means to a healthier life.
