Denison’s varsity sports teams defeated every opponent who came before them in Granville during Big Red Weekend in October. Men’s soccer downed Hiram by a 2–1 score, and women’s soccer beat the Terriers, 3–1. The DU field hockey squad defeated conference foe Ohio Wesleyan, 2–1, in Piper Stadium, and volleyball swept NCAC opponent Allegheny, 3–0, in Livingston Gym. And the Big Red football team overcame a seven-point halftime deficit to triumph over DePauw, 42–21.
But the weekend, which saw more than 1,000 guests on campus, was made up of much more than sports events. The Denison Homestead dedicated the new cabin that was built during the summer; student singing group DU-Wop belted out Adele’s “Rumor Has It” during the traditional student a cappella concert in Swasey; the Black Alumni Association and the swimming and diving teams held their annual reunions; the Varsity D Association Hall of Fame inducted seven new members; and students showed off their Denison digs to parents, alumni, brothers, sisters, and the occasional family dog.
