The Learning Guide encourages students to do 10 things: ask questions, manage their time, follow their heart, be creative, respect others, take risks, maintain their integrity, show courage, take care of themselves, and enjoy it all.

The concept of liberal arts embodies certain fundamental goals, among them breadth, depth, independent thinking, and rational and humane self-determination. Denison’s curriculum provides the means by which these characteristics are deliberately nurtured in our students.
