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.
Scholarship—or what some call learning—at Denison isn’t just lectures, books, and research papers.
Here, the life of the mind is reflective, but it’s also active and interactive. It’s discussion. It’s collaboration with other students and professors on original research, writing, and art. It’s the exploration of perspectives and ideas. It’s the development and defense and application of your own new ideas. It is, simply put, an experience that transforms lives.
The breadth and depth of Denison’s liberal arts curriculum lays a solid foundation for what we call co-curricular learning—a concept that spans a host of programs and organizations. They provide the settings for students to apply their knowledge, to experiment with new skills, and to pursue their passions.
