My ah-ha moment has to be coming into contact with so many people who are not … me. It felt great to be surrounded by people who come everywhere from Alaska to New York City, and really getting to know their lives and how we all ended up in this tiny, beautiful liberal arts college in central Ohio.
I've met the lacrosse player from New England, the pre-med major from Ohio, the artsy English/philosophy major from Pittsburgh, but each one is fantastic in their own way. Each one seems to be holding the building block for what makes Denison … Denison. And who would think that so many people, who are so different, could create a school and a student culture as strong as ours?
