Beth Eden continues to house Admissions offices and also the offices of Financial Aid.

History & Architecture

The land where Beth Eden stands was first acquired in 1889 from Fletcher O. Marsh, professor of mathematics and acting president of the university from 1873 - 1875. The Marsh house was then torn down and the new home or "President's Mansion" was built in 1903. The first president to live in the house, Emory W. Hunt (1901-1912), unofficially named the house "Beth Eden" after the Massachusetts' church where he and his wife were married. The house was converted to the Admissions center in the early 1970's and the name "Beth Eden", meaning "House of Peace," was made official.

Central Campus
Each year, more than 1,000 prospective students pass through Beth Eden as they visit campus, and more than 4,000 apply for enrollment. But there’s only room for about 600 in each class, so competition for a Denison education is stiff.

Campus Life

Can anyone fully describe student life at Denison in just three minutes? Not really. There’s too much to do, too many opportunities to make this college your own. But take a short walk across campus with Janyce Caraballo ’17, and you’ll definitely get a glimpse.
