At least for now, with finals looming, students aren’t going out looking for extra learning opportunities. Soon enough, though, those intellectually restless history majors will be looking to get their astrophysics on whenever they can—that’s liberal arts for you. At the same time, we know our faithful alums probably would give anything to be back in the classroom right now or, at the very least, would like to keep tabs on old professors and their latest research. Prospective students who can’t make it to campus? (Ed. note: You’re missing out!) Of course, you want to know what Denison professors are like (Ed. note: They’re really good!).
You’re all in luck—for you, we’ve got Denison on iTunes U. It’s not a substitute for the classroom experience, of course, but this virtual resource augments and enhances that experience. There are tons of podcasts, vodcasts, and full-length lectures on everything from medieval studies to the recent economic meltdown. As a preview, we’ve included below three recent lectures from the Tuesday Lunch Series for listening online or downloading to your iPod. But don’t take our word for it—whether you’re just beginning the college search; you’re way too curious for just four classes a semester; or you’re simply a lifelong learner, check out Denison on iTunes U today!
