Where We Go

Advising Circles gather peers and mentors to learn about Denison and themselves.

Denison offers many summer orientation programs intended for students who are new to the college experience. These orientations provide incoming first-year students a unique, challenging, and enjoyable transition to life at Denison.

The transition from high school to college can be both exciting and overwhelming. Denison’s First-Year Program supports first-year students through orientation programs and advising opportunities that span the academic year.
