We're moving!

We're moving our new stories to Denison.edu, the college's super-sweet mothership. Over time, we'll be moving some of our best past stories from TheDEN over there too. In the meantime, we've made available an archive of all stories here. This archive will be available for a few months before this site is permanently shut down. See you at Denison.edu! - June 2016

Slow down, you move too fast

Fall semester is ramped up and moving fast. You have an exam on Thursday, two papers due Friday, and there’s a meeting tonight for that club you joined. Whew.

But, wait. Take a cue from the East: walk slowly, take a breath, have a look around. Maybe even grab a couple hours of meditative calm at the 1,800-acre Dawes Arboretum, just 14 miles from Denison. Over the weekend, three professors and a dozen students from the Language and Culture Program in Preston House toured the Japanese Garden and Bonsai Collection there with the curator, Keith Stevens. They soaked up the scenery, learned a lot, marveled at 100 small-but-mighty Bonsai plants, had some laughs, and strolled softly on stepping stones across a reflecting pool. Afterward they even enjoyed a Japanese lunch.

That’s a good day.
