Family events are times to be with your student and other Denison families on The Hill or at receptions near your home. We welcome you to these events and look forward to visiting with you there.

Move-In Day & First-Year Induction

Staff, community advisors, and the men’s football team will be on hand to help move your student’s belongings into their residence hall. Spend a day on The Hill then join us that evening for the Class Induction, when we officially welcome your student to the Denison community.
