    1. VISIT!!- you won't do well if you pick ANY school just by looking at the brochures. 2. If given the opportunity, attend a couple classes. 3. Talk to current students and professors. I promise you they won't sugarcoat it. They will tell you exactly if you would be the type of person that will be successful or not. 4. DO YOUR RESEARCH. Does Denison have everything you want in a campus? A community town. Check. Caring Professors. Check. A nearby city. Check. A million clubs to choose from. CHECK! (: 5. find out about scholarships! Denison is one of the most generous when it comes to aid. Check that for all schools.

    If you feel like you're not as academically strong, definitely go out and join clubs, sports, community service (as early as you can!), as the school does consider your extracurriculars. Also, work hard on your application essays to really showcase who you are and why you feel like you belong at Denison, showing them that you will be an active participant of the community who has something to offer! I have found that a lot of my friends came to visit and loved their stay there, so try and visit and get a feel of the school.

    If applying to Denison I suggest you visit the campus. It helped me decide because you don't get to experience the vibe unless you are there. The people here are just very nice and courteous it will surprise you. Also, keep up on your school work because we are a bit fast paced but it is manageable.
