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

We’re always hunting down interesting Denison-related content on the interwebs, and, periodically, we’ll share the best of this content with you on TheDEN. In today’s fix of Denisonia, we’ve got one alum rocking out and another putting her studio art talents to work on a children’s book. And then we’ve got the student who we hope is somewhere far, far away from snow right now.
