Application information for incoming first-year students interested in taking part in the Canoeing Orientation

Overview: Denison Canoeing Orientation (DCO) provides a wilderness, paddling and camping experience for up to 16 members of the incoming class. The primary goal of the program is social - to welcome our newest students to the Denison community by developing relationships with faculty, student leaders, and fellow classmates. The DCO program is also an outdoor learning experience, designed to help students develop safe paddling skills, to practice valuable skills in “Leave No Trace” camping, and to learn about Ohio’s natural history and geography.
