Bragging Rights: What to say the next time someone asks, “What’s cool about Denison?”

Work in Progress

In April, Denison announced that the Austin E. Knowlton Foundation pledged a gift of $9.3 million to support Denison’s work to create the benchmark program for helping students to transition from the liberal arts into the professions. The gift will create a permanent endowment to support the college’s Center for Career Exploration, which has been renamed “The Austin E. Knowlton Center for Career Exploration.” For more information, visit go.denison.edu/knowlton-career-gift.

Bang for Your Buck

The Princeton Review has named Denison to its list of “Colleges That Pay You Back,” aka the nation’s best colleges for students seeking a superb education with great career preparation at an affordable price.

X-Ray Vision

The National Science Foundation has awarded a grant of more than $105,000 to Denison for support of research by members of the Denison chemistry faculty. The funds will be used to purchase a powder X-ray diffractometer (XRD) system, which will enhance research capabilities for both faculty and students, allowing them insights into the molecularlevel organization of solid materials.

Top Tier

U.S. News & World Report placed Denison at No. 55 on the list of the 100 Best National Liberal Arts Colleges—one of only four Ohio colleges to be recognized.
