From Denison University

A best-of-both-worlds location. Personalized education. Career-focused coaching. Real-world professional experience. And long-lasting connections. That's the Denison difference.

Denison’s beautiful campus sits on “The Hill” in our quintessential college town just 25 minutes from Columbus, Ohio — the 14th largest city in the country.

Our professors are true mentors, and our innovative academic programs prepare students for the world that awaits them. Denison students engage in hands-on learning and gain practical skills that employers are seeking. And Denison’s curriculum features academic programs in data analytics, financial economics, global commerce, global health, and narrative journalism, among others.

Denison has developed the gold standard in career readiness programs. Our students have access to our 16 career center coaches and powerful network of alumni and parents. And Denison’s Launch Lab in downtown Columbus further connects the classroom to career.
