For those seeking out “a small, liberal arts school with quality academics as well as a penchant for producing students who are well-rounded citizens,” Denison University deserves a closer look. The school is “set in a beautiful and very safe town” in rural Ohio and offers “an intelligent and welcoming community ready and willing to help others” as well as “a great support system.” Denison offers a campus filled with “continuous construction of new facilities” where “students have diverse opportunities to explore their talents and improve their skills through campus jobs, clubs, internships, and the election of double majors and minors that don’t necessarily fit together.”
The crown jewels of the school’s academic life seem to be the professors who are “tough, but usually fair.” One student raves, “At Denison, we have professors that can make a poem out of a picture and a mountain out of a math problem. We are so privileged to be surrounded by scholars who are passionate about teaching and learning what they love.” Students get a chance to form close bonds with their professors thanks to the “small student-to-faculty ratio” as well as the high accessibility of the professors outside of the classroom. According to one student, “As far as professor availability goes, I see my professors on campus so often that I’m starting to suspect they sleep in their offices...” Students keep it all in perspective and recognize that “although academics are certainly important here, Denison teaches you how to shape what you know so that you become a more curious, passionate, and interesting individual.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
