Built on a foundation of academic breadth, depth and rigor, and enduring relationships, Denison unleashes the potential of students to become the architects of their own lives. From day one, students have the opportunity to learn in small classes, work directly with professors, conduct hands-on research, perform, create and explore. Denison’s award-winning career exploration program redefines how liberal arts colleges prepare students for life after college. Foundation programs engage students early and often, fill skills gaps, connect students with alumni coaches, provide internship opportunities, and support them as they begin post-Denison.
