Denison University

Denison University is a private, coeducational college of liberal arts and sciences.  Founded in 1831 as a literary and theological institution by frontier Baptists, Denison has since evolved into an independently administered and financed university providing students with a challenging academic curriculum of the highest quality and a vast array of diverse extracurricular programs. The University offers three different bachelor's degrees (B.A., B.S. and B.F.A.) among 49 major fields of study.  There are also interdepartmental majors and individually designed majors for those who desire a truly personalized education.

Full-time enrollment is 2,050, divided nearly equally between men and women. About one-third are residents of Ohio and another third are from the Mid-Atlantic or New England regions.  In a typical year, all 50 states are represented and international students come to Denison from more than 30 countries around the world. Ethnic minorities make up approximately 10 percent of the student population.

Denison operates on a two-semester academic calendar from September to May.  The three-week May Term is a period for students to travel or take advantage of numerous internships with professors, corporate organizations and government agencies.  More than 500 courses and 800 classes are offered each year; the average class size is 19, with a student/faculty ratio of approximately 10/1. About half of Denison's graduates continue their education at graduate and professional schools across the United States and abroad.  Each year, Denison grads are accepted to top law, medical, dental and business schools.  The University's Career Development Center assists students in their preparation for these programs.  Adam S. Weinberg became Denison's 20th president on July 1, 2013.

2008 DU Graduate Lowell Byers Recognized By NCAA Div. III 40-in-40 Celebration

Growing up watching his father perform in Broadway musicals, it’s no surprise that Lowell Byers chose to major in theater at a liberal arts college that counts Hal Holbrook, Jennifer Garner and Steve Carrell among its graduates. But Denison also offered Byers the opportunity to pursue another talent, swimming. Through four years as a student-athlete, he excelled in working with a cast of performers – whether it was the teammates with whom he won four Division III championships in relay events, or fellow thespians in the six campus plays in which he played lead roles.
