To Denison we raise our song 
Fair college on the hill, 

The name that sets our souls on fire 
And makes our senses thrill. 

To Denison, my Denison, 

In praise our voices swell, 

The scenes of happy college days. 
The Home we love so well.

Academics is the core 
of Denison. We strive 
for intellectual diver- 
sity and engagement 
supported by strong 
bonds between 
students and their 
professors and 
classmates.

senior majors share pieces that have defined 
or inspired their own unique artistic styles. 


Below: Epoch, the senior majors' final 
exhibition, held in Newark. 






From exhibitions to guest artists and drawing to 3-D 
printing, the Studio Art department is an active and 
thriving part of Denison where artists of all colors are 
encouraged to form new ideas about themselves 

and the world through their art. 








Cinema 




Film and video — their history, the theory of their creation, 
and the process of their production — are the subjects of the 
Cinema department. They encourage the view of cinema as 
an art form and are active to this end in the form of annual 
film screenings as well as alumni visits. One alumni group, 
four majors of the class of 2009 comprising Family Squid, 

visited Denison this year (below). 



Art History 

The discipline of Art History and Visual Culture encourages a 

viewing of the world through art and its relation to society. 

For majors, this culminates in senior research, which may be 
anything from e-waste to Scottish identity and history, from 
wedding culture to AIDS and Ebola in Africa. This research is 
presented at the Senior Symposium (above).

Dance 

At Denison, Dance is a window into the world that looks 
through the connections between physical movement, 
knowledge, and society. These ideas are embodied in the 
many performances each year, including this year's semester 
shows (such as All Sides in View, above middle), outside per- 
formances (likeAdu, above), and senior recitals 

(top of page). 

DANCE I 9 



Workshops with professors, alumni, and outside 
artists are a frequent event, as this one with Caro- 
line Spence '1 1. A creative writing major during 
her time at Denison, she has since embarked on a 
successful musical career. She held a Songwriting 
Workshop and attended classes during her vists. 


Practice makes perfect — orchestra practice 
(below) and bluegrass ensemble practice 

(right). 


Bringing outside artists to campus is 
another aspect of the department’s ac- 
tivities. Among this year's events were 
Percussion Day (above) and the 19th 
Annual Jazz Guitar Festival (right). 


10 MUSIC 






‘THu&ic 


The Music department at Denison is active, diverse, and thriving, with 
bluegrass, choir, and orchestral concerts, classes and private lessons, 
outside artist performances, collaborations with other 
departments, senior recitals, and more. 








c ~Chcalvc 

The Theatre department at Denison combines theoretical 
study of theatre as an art and as a social and historical 
tool while also providing training in practical aspects of 
production. The department does workshops with alumni 
and outside theatre members in addition to performing 
several shows a year (top and bottom, across spread). 








Into the Woods 


The Singers' Theatre Workshop are a talented group 
of performers who combine theatre and music. They 
draw full houses with virtually every show. Their 
fall performance, Into the Woods, written by Steven 
Sondheim, is an original mashup of 
Brothers Grimm fairy tales tied 
together with a baker and the witch 
who lives next door. 



THEATRE 13 




Angela Davis

INTERDISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS 15 




CLASSICS 

The Classical Studies department focuses 
on elucidating the cultural and intellectual 
achievements of ancient Greece and Rome 
as the foundation of Western society. This 
includes classes in Latin and ancient Greek as 
well as various courses in history and culture, 
such as "Ancient Identities" (pictured). 




Philosophy 

Life and death, ethics, theories of knowl- 
edge, mind and soul, and the nature of 
things are among the topics to be found in 
philosophy classes. The department hosts 
outside speakers (left) as well as Philosophy 
Coffees (below), public discussions cen- 
tered on coffee and a big idea. 



16 CLASSICS; PHILOSOPHY 






Religion 

The department of Religion studies the con- 
nection between humanity and ultimate 
reality, in whatever form that may take. 
Classes here, along with outside speakers 
like Dr. Keri Day (left), expose students to a 
diverse set of worldviews while fostering a 
sense of community. 



History 

A development of the extremely complex and intri- 
cate narrative of humanity is the focus of the History 
department. Students are exposed to a variety of his- 
torical perspectives that are brought to life in many 

different ways. 

Left and above: Dr. Adam Davis hosted a medieval 
combat expert in his "Origins of Medieval Europe" 
class to demonstrate various combat techniques.

English 

The English department seeks to ex- 
plore the societal impact of literature 
and the art and science of the English 
language. With classes ranging from 
creative writing to regional literature, 
students receive a broad base for 
studying English's use throught history.

Modern 

Languages 

The Modern Languages depart- 
ment teaches classes in Spanish, 
French, German, Portuguese, Jap- 
anese, Chinese, and Arabic. With 
native or near-native speakers as 
professors, students quickly gain 
a deep understanding of their 
language of study in addition to 
outside cultual experience. 



BECK LECTURE SERIES; MODERN LANGUAGES 19 



Chemistry 

The interactions of atoms and molecutes 
that form the basis of our lives — this is the 
subject of chemistry. Students work hard 
in labs, classes, and summer research proj- 
ects. The curriculum is designed to teach 
students to study chemistry with the tools 

of modern science. 



Mole-A-Thon 

Mole Day, October 23 of each year, is 
a celebration of Avogadro's Number, a 
basic chemical constant. The DU Chemi- 
cal Society hosted a marathon event, the 
Mole-a-Thon, to celebrate. 



20 CHEMISTRY; DUBS; DUCS 








Biology Kickball 

The DU Biological Society, a student organization 
composed of biology majors and faculty, participate 
in many activities, both academic and fun, through- 
out the year. One such activity (pictured) is the 
student-and-faculty kickball game. 


BIOLOGY 

Biology is the study of living organisms, from humans to bacte- 
ria, and how they work in a scientific sense. Students perform 
labs, explore the Bio Reserve, and research topics with profes- 
sors in the summer, and go on to careers in medical fields as 
well as education, nutrition, and conservation. 





3-D Printing 

3-D printing is a new technology that is 

revolutionizing product design and 
manufacturing. After acquiring several 3-D 
printers, the department taught a 3-D 
printing seminar in which students designed 
products and sculptures and printed them, 
giving presentations and showcasing their 
work. In addition to creative projects, the 
class took a trip to a Maker Space in Pitts- 
burgh to learn more about how industrial 
3-D printing occurs (pictured, top). 




The Math and Computer Science department at Denison is full of the unexpected. Both 
fields are focused on abstraction — in math, it is how abstraction creates patterns and 
answers questions, and in computer science, it is how abstraction allows you to create 
algorithms to solve problems. The department is active on campus as well as in the 
classroom, hosting events like the Hour of Code many times a year as well as guest 
speakers, Counting, Computing, and Coffee events, and more. 

22 I MATH AND COMPUTER SCIENCE 






Hour of Code 


A collaboration of the Computer 
Science faculty and students with 
STEMworks of Newark, Hour of 
Code is an hour-long program 
designed to teach beginners how 
to work with computers and 
write code. It is designed for every- 
one from elementary schoolers to 
college students to the elderly. 


Mathematics and 
Computer Science 

1 MATH AND COMPUTER SCIENCE I 23 








Dr. Bill Phillips 


Dr. William Phillips is a Nobel laureate in Physics and head of 
the Laser Cooling and Trapping Group at the National Insti- 
tute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and he served as 
v \ the 201 6 Anderson Lecturer. He gave a talk in Swasey 
Chapel titled "Time, Einstein, and the Coolest Stuff in 
the Universe," in which he addressed the connection 
between temperature and time along with several 
demos involving magnetism and liquid nitrogen that, 
for many, were simply magic. The following day he 
hosted several sessions in various settings, including 
visiting a physics class and moderating a discussion on 
the connection between science and religion. 


"To the Denison physics students- 

Always keep a child-like curiosity and 

love for learning." 

—Bill Phillips 



Physics 

The Physics department encourages a thorough exploration of the 
world around us. From classical mechanics to electromagnetism to 
quantum mechanics, and through both theory and experimentation, 
physics majors receive a rigorous, challenging, and stimulating foray 
into the basic laws of the universe. 





Physics Outreach 

In collaboration with Granville Elementary School, the 
Outreach program is an opportunity for physics majors to 
teach second graders about unique and counterintuitive 
physical phenomena. From pressure and why balloons 
don't always do what you think they should to fun with 
liquid nitrogen, it is a chance for youth to explore science 
and why things work the way they do. 


PHYSICS 25 


Communication 

The Communication department at Denison 
studies all aspects of human communication, 
from rhetoric in academia to media study. In 
addition to a variety of classes, the department 
includes service learning and hosts research 
colloquia (such as "What's My Argument?" 
pictured below) and outside speakers. 

Right: Peter Selvin, celebrated biographer of 
Michelle Obama (hosted with the Political Science 
and Black Studies departments). 




26 



Economics 


Goods and services form the basis of the study of economics, 
and the Economics department strives to explore their produc- 
tion, distribution, and consumption in various social contexts. 

Below, left: "Can Taxes Be Fair?" by Dr. Bill Peirce, Professor Emeritus of Economics at Case Western Reserve 
University; Below, right: The Winner's Curse in the Field and in the Laboratory," by Dr. Dan Levin, Professor of 
Economics at the Ohio State University. Both hosted by the Economics Club. 




COMMUNICATION; ECONOMICS 




Political Science 

Political science is the study of politics, 
whether it is the politics of Congress and 
the United States or the politics of climate 
change, terrorism, developing nations, or 
religion. This year, the Political Science 
department hosted several high-profile 
outside speakers. 

Top: Students meet with Bobby Jindal, former 
Governor of Louisiana, before a public lecture 
he gave in Swasey Chapel. 

Above and left: "Political Polarization," a 
discussion moderated by former Senators Rich- 
ard Lugar '54 (R-ln.) and Bob Graham (D-Fl.) 
regarding partisanship in politics.

go hand-in-hand 
with Denison athlet-

sporting events are 
lively and ener-

way for Deniso- 
nians to support 
each other in all 
we do.

52 MEN'S FOOTBALL 




With a record of 7-3, the Denison football team had 
an excellent season. Many of the team members were 
recognized. In particular, Lucas Romick '16 was honored very 
highly (see right sidebar). Dushawn Brown '16 was named 
to the D3football.com 2015 All-North Region second-team as 
well as the All-NCAC first-team along with Joel Lohoua '17. In 
addition, Drew Gray '17, Andrew Baird '17, and Zach Pewitt 
'16 received second-team honors, and Cam Layer '16, Anthony 
Sernus '17, and Conor Dunn '17 received honorable mention. 








Lucas Romick '16 is part athlete, 
part philanthropist, part leader, and 
full Denisonian. An environmental 
science and communication double 
major as well as four-year member of 
Denison's football team, Romick was 
recognized for his extensive leadership 
abilities and philanthropic efforts 
by being awarded the 201 6 Coach 
Wooden Citizenship Cup, a highly 
prestigious national honor. 

In addition to serving as the president 
of both the Denison and NCAC 
Student Athlete Advisory Councils, 
Romick has since 201 2 logged more 
than a thousand hours of service 
for the Thirst Project, a nonprofit 
organization that brings clean water to 
areas of the world without it. Helping 
to organize several Thirst Galas, a 
VidCon exhibit, and private gatherings, 
Romick has helped raise nearly $1 
million for the organization. 

Romick was also recognized this year 
by being named to the 2015 Allstate 
AFCA Good Works Team®, one of 
the most esteemed off-the-field honor 
in all of college football. Romick had 
the opportunity to join the rest of the 
Good Works Team for the Sugar Bowl 
in New Orleans, Louisiana. That week 
in New Orleans included a concert, a 
New Year's Eve Parade float, and honor 
on national television at halftime. 

Romick noted upon reflection that 

"It was an honor to represent 
Denison University and the North 
Coast Athletic Conference, and I 
hope my words will encourage and 
open the doors for those behind me 
to do the same."

MEN'S TENNIS 63 






Aedin Brennan '16 is perhaps the most 
decorated female athlete in the his- 
tory of the track-and-field program. 

She leaves Denison holding ten school 
records, seven All-American perfor- 
mances, a National Championship, and 
numerous other awards. 

Brennan is a biology major with a 
Spanish minor from Fairport, New York. 
She is active academically, performing 
research in biology as well as tutoring in 
the Spanish department, and is involved 
in the community. Out of several col- 
leges, she chose Denison in part because 
of the coaches in the track and field pro- 
gram; even four years later, she remarks 
that the coaches and other athletes in 
the track-and-field program at Denison 
are "the only reason I'm still sane." 

The NCAC conference meet during her 
freshman year is one of her favorite 
memories; after ending third in the 
4x400 relay, she noted "I didn't even 
realize what had happened. I just ran as 
hard as I could." This, combined with 
other outstanding performances by her 
and the rest of the team, helped to 
propel Denison into third place in the 
NCAC Championship that year. 

Earning the 2015 NCAA Dill National 
Championship in the heptathlon two 
years later, and second place in the 
2016 championship pentathlon the fol- 
lowing year, are the crown jewels in a list 
of achievements that includes placement 
on the CoSIDA Academic All-American 
first-team, recognition as the 201 5 
USTFCCCA Great Lakes Region Outdoor 
Field Athlete of the Year, seven All- 
American performances, various all- 
Ohio performances, and 26-time 
NCAC Champion in four years on the hill.

Track and Field 

This year has been record-breaking and full of 
honors for the track and field team. In conference, 
the men finished 8th at the Indoor Championships and 
7th at the Outdoor, while the women finished third and

NCAA events, freshman Ajai Brooks garnered 
three All-American performances, in the Out- 
door 100-meter dash and the Indoor and Outdoor 
200-meter dash; and David Carter '19 earned 
a fourth All-American award, in the Outdoor 
triple jump. In addition to All-American perfor- 
mances, school records were broken this sea- 
son by Brooks, who set records in the 1 00-me- 
ter and 200-meter dash; Hall in the high jump; 
Rebecca Fritch '16 in the hammer throw; and

"I first heard about Denison at 
a football camp in Boston. The 
coaches got me interested. When 
I looked at the price tag, I knew I 
couldn't go here. But I researched 
the alumni; it made me want go 
here. I’m glad I came here. The 
small class sizes have helped me 
a lot, and it provides more per- 
sonalized teaching. Seeing all of 
the diversity is also cool. All of the 
different people from all around 
the world... I didn't have that in 
Tennessee." 


Megan Lovely

"I was really close to going to 
St. Olaf in Minnesota. I could re- 
ally recognize myself there, but it 
was the safer option. At Denison 
I knew I would be able to grow 
more and it would challenge 
me.... Everybody says it, but it re- 
ally is the community that makes 
Denison so special. It's so help- 
ful with the difficult transition to 
college. There are so many kind 
people who will randomly check 
up on you. It's a really supportive 
community." 


Ellen Westfall 



Major: Environmental Science 


"The Bio Reserve drew me in. I 
thought it would be a good op- 
portunity to be able to take classes 
and go down there and do research 
or field work.... Denison seemed 
like such a close-knit community. 
When I visited, my tour guide was 
talking to everybody and was re- 
ally friendly. The atmosphere was 
really friendly. Also, they seem to 
really care about their students, 
and that's really nice. "

Alpha Phi Alpha is the oldest national fraternity for black college men, established in 1 906. Deni- 
son's chapter was formally chartered in 1 990, but it existed as early as 1 985; thus, this year the men 
celebrated their 30th Year Chapter Reunion in September. Throughout the year they also held a 
number of collaborative events with other fraternities and sororities on campus. The motto of the 
organization is First of All, Servants of All, We Shall Transcend All. 


Alpha Sigma Rho sorority joined the Greek-letter organizations at Denison this year, with a 
charter class of ten women forming the Eta Colony. They represent the only Asian-interest 
sorority at Denison and the only colony of the sorority, founded in 1 998, in all of the Midwest. Their 
motto, Strength in Unity, embodies the emphasis on intercultural relationships and promotion of 

diversity that has been important since the founding of the organization.

PHI IOTA ALPHA 97 



n Pi Beta Phi sorority, founded in 1876, was established on Denison's campus in 1954. Since then, the Pi 
Phis have grown to over forty women with a large presence on campus. In addition to social activities 

B like apple picking with Delta Chi, the women hosted a number of fundraising events, including the Pi 
Phi Pasta Phest, an evening of pasta and bingo in late March. They also hosted their annual Pi Phi 

O Palooza in October (pictured opposite), an outdoor cookout that included cornhole, soccer, Pie-A-Pi- 
Phi, and a pie-eating contest. These events contribute to their philanthropy, Read, Lead, Achieve.

After 1 9 years as a colony, Sigma Gamma Rho sorority was officially chartered this year as the Tau 
lota chapter at Denison University. The women have been extremely active on campus, participating 
not only in events like the NPHC Icebreaker with their governing council, the National Pan-Hellenic 
Council (NPHC), but also organizing events of their own. Movie nights and study tables were essen- 
tial parts of various days-long events, such as their Founder's Week Sigma-bration and their spring 
semester breast cancer awareness endeavors, which included a photo campaign across campus and 
donation collection for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure. Other charity work included 
a book drive that collected over 250 books from the Denison community for OSU's Upward Bound 
program, a program designed to help bright and underprivileged high school students. 

Chartered at Denison in 1 868, Sigma Chi fraternity is one of the oldest Greek-letter groups on 
campus. The goals of the organization include "the cultivation, maintenance, and accomplishment of 
the ideals of friendship, justice, and learning." Among other activities and collaborations, the men 

hosted a blood donation drive in October of this year.

The women of Sigma Lambda Gamma sorority have become a massive presence on campus since their 
establishment just four years ago. This year, among their many activities was a great deal of community 
service: they worked with the Granville library, participated in Denison's Food Recovery Network, and 
hosted Christmas card making and ornament crafting during Granville's Candlelight Walk. On campus, 
they hosted Gamma Week, including a pink rose sale, a community park clean-up, a movie screening 
and dialogue with Alpha Kappa Alpha, and a test anxiety workshop with Academic Support. Their 
highly-anticipated annual Rico Suave pageant (pictured below) raised nearly $1,000 for charity.

Denison means the most to me. It gave me forever friends and the confidence to succeed 
further! I couldn't have made it all four years without the support of the people I've met and 
the professors I had. Thank you Denison! 

— Imani Abernathy, Music (Performance) major and Theatre minor, Chicago, Illinois 

Denison allowed me to do and be anything I wanted. It is a home that I love dearly. 
— Peter J. Fallon, Jr., Communication major and Economics minor, Marblehead, Massachusetts 

In my four years at Denison, I have developed and achieved goals that I never would have 
imagined as a high school student. When I started classes here, I changed my academic focus 
from molecular biology to plant ecology and I have already been able to present my research 
at a scientific conference. As a proud member of the Denison Track and Field program, I have 
trained alongside my best friends and become a National Champion. 

— Aedin Brennan, Biology major and Spanish minor, Fairport, New York 

Denison truly is special; it's a place unlike any other. I will forever cherish the memories I've 

made here and the people I've met. 
— Niyah Gonzalez, Communication major and Women's and Gender Studies minor, 

Kansas City, Missouri 

I came into Denison hoping to be welcomed into a tight-knit community, but I got so much 
more than just that. I got a community that would help me learn and grow into the man 
I am today. 

— Steven Hix, Economics and Political Science double major, Dayton, Ohio 


Summarize your Denison experience. 


Denison has provided me with an eternity of amazing memories. I never want to regret how I spent 
my time here, and I am happy to say now that I have truly gotten the most of my education. 
— Jackson O'Gorman-Bean, French and International Studies double major, New York City, New York 

I will always cherish the ease of access to the best minds, technology and advice that I have 
had here at Denison. I swear you sit down at a table in Slayter and you can have the same 
enriching experience as you have in a classroom. 

— Emma Miller, English (Literature) major and Cinema minor, The Woodlands, Texas 

These past four years have been so crucial to my life. I've found my best friends, learned an 
incredible amount (inside and outside the classroom), and grown so much as a person. I will 

never forget my time here. 

— Max Kelly, Economics major with a Mathematics concentration, Highland Park, Illinois 

I don't think I ever appreciated before Denison just how essential the human element is to 
learning and working — nothing taught me to doubt, make play with, reformulate, and apply 
my ideas so well as the personal interactions I had with staff and peers. 

— Christina Hambleton, Political Science major and Philosophy minor, Bellville, Ohio 

The best thing about going to Denison is the chance to meet and work with different people. 
Through classes and co-curricular activities, I've had the chance to do really cool projects with 

people that I might never have met otherwise. 
— Aleksa Kaups, Psychology and Theatre double major, Shaker Heights, Ohio 

My time at Denison was a slow burn to a fantastic finish. Life starts out fairly slow here on the 
Hill; but once I found my friends, solidified my interests, and fell into my routine, every day felt 
new and exciting. 

— Alex Woroncow, Biology major, Cincinnati, Ohio

What was your greatest achievement during your time at Denison? 


This past year I have been working to host a confer- 
ence [for Denison Venture Philanthropy] that has 
been in the works since I was a freshman. My final 
semester as a Denison student saw this conference 
turn from an idea into reality. It was an incredible 
experience to watch this conference grow over my 
four years. 

— Alana Perez 

My greatest achievement would be getting over 
my fear of speaking in public. I want to be a broad- 
caster and I worked really hard this year taking 
classes and participating in activities that would 
help me be more confident. 

— Niyah Gonzalez 


Finally making the Dean's List in my senior year. 

— Shannon Slattery 

President Weinberg coming to my senior recital and tell- 
ing my mom that I will truly be missed on campus. That 
shows me that I did shine my light on everyone I met, 
including the president of the university. 

— Imani Abernathy

What was your favorite memory from your time at Denison? 


Being able to write, produce and see my own musi- 
cal here at Denison will always be a special memory 
for me. 

— Emma Miller 

I went to a Gospel Choir concert once in Swasey 
Chapel. I'm not a religious person, but their sound 
hit me in a way I didn't think possible. They made 
me feel lucky to be here. 

— Shannon Slattery 

Winning the D-lll Men's National Swimming and 
Diving Championship. 

— Peter Fallon 


My favorite memory was traveling throughout Puerto 

Rico for Spring Break 2016. 

— Naomi Granados 

The day I met my best friend. It was her very first 
sports practice, and I had no idea who this talkative, 
over-enthusiastic kid was. After practice, we were 
walking to a team dinner in Huffman and she was 
talking my ear off. I was annoyed until she casually 
mentioned the actor, Richard Armitage. We both did 
the jumping, screaming thing. It was in this moment I 
knew it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. 

— Alana Perez 


SENIORS 131 



That girl who smiled at ev- 
eryone she passed on the 
sidewalk and in the hallways,

a person's day! 

— Shannon Slattery 

As that silly high-spirited fella 
who went off to conquer. 
— Santiago Juarez 
As a creator. 

— Emma Miller 


How would you like 
to be remembered? 


I would like to be remem- 
bered as the student-athlete 
that made her classwork 
and athletic successes look 
effortless, but, behind the 
scenes, she worked as hard 
as anyone. 
— Aedin Brennan 

I would like to be remem- 
bered as the kid whose laugh 
could stop a performance 
cold. 

— Alex Woroncow

— Becca Cooper 

As someone who had been 
utterly herself and helped 
others to be themselves. 

— Erin Katalinic 
As someone who pushed the

offered on campus.

Talk to your professors and step out of your comfort zone. 

— Frederic Offierski, History major, Lontzen, Belgium 

Do something risky that makes you feel uncomfortable. College is an amazing time in your 
life where you're allowed to mess up and everybody just shrugs at you. Take advantage of it, 

because it won't last forever. 
— Steven Hix, Economics and Political Science double major, Dayton, Ohio 

Ask a senior that you admire to tell you how to do Denison right! 

— Santiago Roy Juarez, Jr., Economics major with a concentration in Organizational Studies, 

Brownsville, Texas 

Walk around. Don't be afraid to walk into random buildings around campus and talk to people. 

— Alana Perez, Political Science major, Pomona, California 

Join a club! There are many and it may seem overwhelming, but if you can narrow your partici- 
pation to a few clubs, you can become close with the other members of them. In my opinion, 
it's the best way to make friends, because you're all there for the same thing, as opposed to 
simply by chance living together. It also gives you something to look forward to every week! 

— Becca Cooper, Creative Writing major and Psychology minor, Burr Ridge, Illinois 

Natural talent only gets you so far; dedication and persistence will take you everywhere you 

need to go. 

— Alex Woroncow, Biology major, Cincinnati, Ohio 

Be kind to everyone you meet. 

— Sara Vincent, Communication major and Economics minor, Madison, Wisconsin 


Advice for incoming freshmen? 


Be open minded. Try new things because you might fall in love with it. 
— Keylee Jones, Sociology and Anthropology major and Dance minor, St. Louis, Missouri 

Try things you thought you’d never do and meet everyone you can. You never know what (or 
who) you'll fall in love with, and this is the time to figure that out. 

— Aleksa Kaups, Psychology and Theatre double major, Shaker Heights, Ohio 

Take advantage of all the resources Denison has to offer. 
— Naomi Jeanette Granados, Women's and Gender Studies major, Santa Ana, California 

Get involved; don't be afraid to go outside of your comfort zone; go to the events that Denison 
hosts and plans for us; hold your true friends closest. 

— Max Kelly, Economics major with a Mathematics concentration, Highland Park, Illinois 

The first year is hard because you're still getting used to how college works. Stick with it and 

you'll be rewarded! 

— Shannon Slattery, Biochemistry major and Mathematics minor, Spencerport, New York 

This may be cliche but take advantage of everything and never take all that Denison has to of- 
fer for granted. The four years will go by fast and you should cherish every moment. 

— Imani Abernathy, Music (Performance) major and Theatre minor, Chicago, Illinois 

Take advantage of all Denison has to offer- sports, academics, clubs, social life. There is 

something here for everyone. 

— Peter J. Fallon, Jr., Communication major and Economics minor, Marblehead, Massachusetts 

Enjoy your time because it goes by faster than you can imagine.

I have grown more as a person at Denison than I ever anticipated and I could not be happier. 

— Erin Katalinic, Psychology major and Women's and Gender Studies minor, Columbus, Ohio 

The opportunities here at Denison are practically thrown at you; there is so much to do. From 
sports to theater, you really cannot go wrong. I enjoyed the diversity of activities that Denison 

offers its students. 

— Shannon Slattery, Biochemistry major and Mathematics minor, Spencerport, New York 

I enjoyed the people I met and worked with throughout the four years. I especially appreciate 
being exposed to new subjects and discovering new interests. 

— Naomi Jeanette Granados, Women's and Gender Studies major, Santa Ana, California 

This small college on the hill turned out to be my home away from home. I've met the most 
amazing friends, created unforgettable memories, and feel sorry for anyone who isn't lucky 

enough to call themselves a Denisonian. 
— Taylor Hawkins, Communication and Economics double major, Raleigh, North Carolina 

At Denison, I have enjoyed the school's atmosphere which allows students to fully immerse 
themselves in whatever interests them. As a result, I have been involved with academics, 
sports, greek life, clubs and other student-run organizations. I have learned how to excel on 
the different playing fields of life, a skill I may not have learned at another school. 

— James Kerr, Economics major and Mathematics minor, Darien, Connecticut 

Meeting some of the most amazing peers and faculty at Denison made the four years here go 

by in a flash of hard work and unforgettable times. 
— Frederic Offierski, History major, Lontzen, Belgium 


Summarize your Denison experience. 


Denison inspired me by its care-giving community and focus on individuals. Not only that I 
benefited from an excellent liberal art education over here, but I was able to explore myself, 
develop my own brand. Thank you Denison! Go Big Red! 

— Feimo "Dennis" Zhang - Economics and Psychology double major with a concentration in 
Organizational Studies, Nanjing, China 

I will forever appreciate the support I have received from Denison. I have made long-lasting 
friendships with my peers and professors, who I know I can count on even after I graduate. 
Denison also does a fantastic job at giving the opportunities to receive funding for research 
and internships. The unwavering support I have had within the institution has no doubt gotten 

me to the finish line. 

— Keylee Jones, Sociology and Anthropology major and Dance minor, St. Louis, Missouri 

It's always strange coming to a foreign country but in these four years I feel that I've grown 
attached to this hill and Ohio. Denison is in some aspect so very sheltered but in this commu- 
nity no matter who you are or where you come from everyone can feel they belong here. It's 
not the facilities or the beautiful campus that makes a memorable college experience, it's the 
people that you spent your time with that you'll remember. 

— Benedict Khoo, Biology major, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 

Attending Denison University has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. In my 
four short years in Granville, I learnt more about myself and about the world we live in than I 
had in my prior eighteen years. I look forward to taking my experience at Denison and putting 

it towards making a positive impact on society. 

— Quenton Richards, Political Science major and Philosophy and Economics double minor, 

Franklin, Ohio

Denison is not only a 
place where students 
learn — it's also a 
place where people 
live. The dorm is the 
site of some of the 
best memories and 
the strongest bonds 
that Denisonians 
make.

Homestead 

The Homestead is a unique 
housing choice for a few Deni- 
sonians: an ecologically sus- 
tainable lifestyle that involves 
keeping animals, cooking your 
own food, chopping wood for 
central heating, and gardening, 
with minimal electricity. Each 
semester the Homestead holds 
an Open House for the Denison 
community to experience this 
way of life, in which Home- 
steaders form deep bonds in 
pursuit of common ideals. 



148 THE HOMESTEAD 







Kappa Sipna Hunger Gamea 

Kappa Sigma House, a first-year house on North Quad, held 
the Kappa Sigma Hunger Games this year. Organized by 
RA Melanie Amo '18, the games began with a scavenger 
hunt for residents during which they learned about services 
like Academic Support and the Whisler Center; upon their 
return to North Quad, they participated in a final battle 
with squirt guns and plastic weapons in which Diego 
Rubey '19 was crowned victor.

When /4?e ti)e 

Denisonians come from ail over the world. While many of us come from Ohio and 
most come from the United States, regardless of our origins our different per- 
spectives form part of the critical, diverse, tolerant, and accepting atmosphere 
that helps to define Denison. We asked students from around the globe what 

they missed most about their hometowns. 



150 WHERE ARE WE FROM? 



• Madeline Bellman '18 1 
Clarendon Hills, Illinois 

English and Economics double major 

I miss the people from my hometown the most. 
There's something incredible about going to school 
with the same people for thirteen years and being 
able to see how they change during such influential 
years of their lives. Clarendon Hills is filled with 
small-town charm, like Denison, and my years there 
resonate in what I see of Granville, though it cer- 
tainly isn't the same. 


•Achbold Judgersuren '18 | Ulaanbataar, 
Mongolia and Arlington, Virginia 
Physics major 

I've listed two places as my hometown because I was 
born in Ulaanbataar, Mongolia and moved to Arlington, 
Virginia at age 1 0. 1 miss a lot of things about Mongolia, 
especially my family, the steppes, and the vibe. If you 
don't know, Arlington contains the Pentagon, and the 
rich history of the town is always very fascinating. 

Since I was exposed to two different sides of the world, 

I can relate to the international students pretty well, 
and to the diversity Denison strives for. 

Brooke Hubbard '18 | Jackson Hole, 
Wyoming and Louisville, Colorado 
Political Science major 

So I consider myself to be from "two hometowns"; I was 
born in Jackson, WY and lived there for the first few years 
of my life, and then I moved to Colorado before starting 
school but continued to spend a lot of time in Jackson over 
the summer every year. ... Especially from being from two 
mountainous towns, I miss the mountains and all of the 
various things to do in the outdoors compared to central 
Ohio. The people, in both Louisville and Jackson, are also 
some of the nicest and most interesting people you’ll ever 
meet. I think growing up between two small mountainous 
towns has provided me with a more laid-back perspective 
coming to Denison. 


Joshua McCartney '19 | New York City 

Biology major 

I miss the hustle and bustle of the city. I also miss the incre- 
dible diversity of everything, from the food to the people. My 
hometown has taught me never to judge things based on appea- 
rance alone. In New York there is almost always more to see 
than meets the eye. Finally, I miss the noise. I miss just the 
general din, the sounds of the traffic and people and every- 
thing going on on a massive scale at breakneck speed. 


Andrianna Peterson '18 | Cleveland, Ohio 1 
Communication and Sociology/Anthropology 

double major 

When I think of Cleveland, I immediately begin to miss my 
friends. My friends and I all grew up on the same street and I miss 
looking out of my window and seeing them. Cleveland is the 
reason I attend Denison. I see poverty and struggle there and I 
want to give back. Cleveland has influenced everything from my 
major choice to my work ethic and current friend group. I want 
to make Cleveland proud and give back to my hometown. 

Aubrey Vasquez '1 7 1 Chicago, lllionis 
Biology and Women's and Gender Studies 

double major 

Chicago is a very diverse city, in which every few blocks rep- 
resented a community of individuals from a different culture 
than those next to them. I live within blocks of a Hispanic com- 
munity on one side and Middle Eastern community on another. 
At Denison, there is a dominant culture and everyone else is under- 
represented. I think that the city represents a diverse group, but I 
miss that I cannot interact with various cultures on a daily basis 
because there seems to be assumptions made among students.

Acknowledgments 

The Adytum Team: Isabella Luaces '19 and Patrick Banner '18 



Every yearbook represents an enormous amount of effort and time, and this one is no exception. The staff, of 
course, plays an integral part, but still this book could not have come together as it did without the help of 

the following people: 


Jamie Hale, whose volumes of advice, knowledge, and motivation as an advisor were of immense 

help to us and our sanity; 

University Communications, for placing the yearbook within a context and passing on both useful 
techniques and material with which to work, especially photos; 

Craig Hicks, for providing all the athletics information we could ever use; 

Academic department secretaries, for communicating with us and providing a new channel of 

information for our coverage; 

The Denisonian, for being an impeccable source of information — we especially thank the staff 
photo editors, Linh Nguyen '18 and Alex Caprara '18; 

Photographers throughout campus, for doing their work and doing it well — including Allie Vugrin- 
cic '17, Charlie Hoffman '18, Payton Hoang '17, Linh Nguyen '18, Nelson Dow '16, Hai Nghiem 
'18, Zane Osier '16, and many more whose photos are used here — because, alone, we could never 
achieve the breadth and depth of coverage a yearbook needs; 

Our friends among the student body, for listening to our occasional frustrations, testing or taking 
our surveys, helping us out when we needed an extra hand, and giving us the energy to work to the 

very end. 

We apologize for errors, misspellings, and inconsistencies in this book. 

The Adytum Team hopes you enjoy this edition of the Adytum\
