Visit Activities:


Admissions Interview: Yes - Very helpful, and unlike many, it was a 2 way conversation.

Campus Tour: Yes - Campus tour was pretty superficial. Not into many buildings, nor "customize" the tour despite only 2 on tour. Guide was pleasant, enthusiastic, and effervescent. Not particularly knowledge

They need to invest in this area, it would seem. Like many colleges, they were dated, no AC, not overly current.

Campus Visit Notes for Denison University


Visit Description:

Tour failed to include outlying residential areas, inside many academic buildings, fine arts quad, or PE/recreational facilities. This is a neat place that could be even more attractive with some thought, planning, training of guide. My student liked it very much regardless of some of this "nitty gritty." An attractive bedroom community, growing like crazy, 30 miles east of Columbus. Easily accessible.

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

Granville Inn looked intriguing.
