Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • Steph from Cleveland, OH
  • I am a current student here

    There comes a point in every college student's career where they hate where they are and what they do. It is natural. I have experienced it, and you will too no matter where you go. For me it happened during sophomore year, when I had a lot of emotional, family, health, and roommate issues. What I can say is that I do not know if I would have been able to get through that time in my life while studying at any other school or with any other professors. You will find that at Denison the professors you work with - or even just the professors in the department you primarily work in - actually care about you and what is going on in your life. They try to help you grow as a member of society, a student, and as a human being. This level of attention and care makes Denison truly different and worthwhile.

    Denison University is by no means a party school, but that doesn't mean you can't have a great time their, especially in alcohol-free activities. Denison has extremely active student organization that bring impressive speakers, musician, and authors to campus. For instance, Rebecca Skloot, a New York Times best-selling author was recently on campus giving a presentation, which was extremely well attended! There is also a strong sense of community, which helps students get comfortable with college life quickly and everyone truly cares about each other. Last week, I left my thumb drive in the computer lab and a senior found it and returned it to me! I was so grateful, but events lik these are everyday occurrences at Denison.
