Big Red Connections

Apply for Pre-Orientations in your Admitted Student Portal

Connect with recent Denison graduates in Columbus and Cleveland! Through this program, you’ll explore the sights and sounds of the cities, tour some of the top employers of Denison graduates, and make connections with fellow Denisonians. Alumni will share their favorite Denison experiences, how they spent their time on The Hill, including leadership roles and internships, and how they maximized their Denison experience to land their current jobs.

The Schedule

Pre-O participants will move into their residence halls on Saturday, August 20, 2022 between 9am and 1pm. On Sunday, August 21, participants will travel by bus to Columbus. Participants will return to campus on Wednesday, August 24. First-Year Move-In Day for those not participating in a Pre-O will take place on Thursday, August 25, and August Orientation will begin on Friday, August 26.

What do I bring?

Participants will be sent a packing list with their acceptance packet in the summer. Most meals are included, but we ask that you bring an additional $50-$100 to help cover the cost of some meals and/or shopping. The program includes considerable city walking; comfortable walking shoes are required.

Fees

The cost of Big Red Connections is $250. Questbridge Scholars, Denison-Columbus Alliance Scholars, and students with eligible financial need as determined by the Office of Financial Aid who are accepted into the program will have their fees waived.
