    You are not just another college student here on campus. People care about who you are. Sure- not everything is perfect. But one you find your doubt you have some great times. How many universities can say that the president of their school invites them to dinner!? Exactly. We love getting personal here (not meant to be creep) so no one is just another student

    Denison, as many liberal arts and private schools, is extremely expensive. That being said, Denison is also extremely generous with their scholarship and financial aid. Most of my friends have received large scholarships that help significantly with tuition costs. Denison really shapes you into becoming a productive member and autonomous thinker and challenges you to be the best version of yourself. You have a wide variety of classes to choose from, and the school is constantly hosting events, bringing in speakers and performers.
