Living at Denison There is so much happening in student life at Denison, so many opportunities to make this college your own. See for yourself.

Student life at Denison is fun, challenging, busy, quiet, loud, active, calm--you name it. And it all ends up helping our students figure out how they want their lives to look--and then contributes to making it happen.

At Denison, we make sure that real learning takes place outside of the classroom, as well as within. A lot of colleges say that—-we mean it. Students share, question, and grow. They define their values. They learn to work together. They try new things. And if it doesn't go well, they try again. That's how success happens, not just in college, but in life.
