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

The wonderful wizard of college


Ellen Rosebrough ’13, of Wildwood, Mo., and Aaron Robertson ’16, of Williamsville, N.Y., are performing this week in “The Wonderful Wizard of College,” a play written to help teach Newark fourth-graders about college and finances. The play was presented by a college awareness program for elementary and middle school students in nearby Newark called PEAK (Providing Early Awareness and Knowledge). The PEAK program is sponsored by A Call to College, an organization founded by Denison graduates Jane Cook McConnell ’56 and the late Louis A. Mitchell ’57 that encourages and assists Newark students in pursuing a college education. Performed at The Works, an interactive learning center in Newark, “The Wonderful Wizard of College” reinforces the relationship between educational attainment and earning power, as well as money management skills. The play was written by Ohio State professor Edie Norlin and retired Newark drama teacher Dennis Kohler (pictured, center above).
