Denison University Reviews
Administration and Financial Aid are awesome! Tons of on-campus job opportunities and extracurriculars. Dorms and dining halls are average and you can cope with them. Party scene...urgh. Campus is cliquey; greek life+people stick with their racial groups in public spaces. Denison is trying to promote inclusion and it did bring some diversity on campus but still working on that integration part.
Academics are great! I got the most satisfaction out of classes when I chose professors who are demanding as hell but want the best for their students. Relationships do run deep with faculty members. I was not the most competitive student when I got accepted to Denison but professors I met here turned me into an A student. Coursework is challenging, but professors are accessible and will answer your questions, go over your essay, and give recommendations if you just go to office hours.
