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

Dressing down and gettin’ down

There was once such a thing as “Bermuda Shorts Day”—a designated day in the spring during which coeds were free to dress “down” from their normally required attire of dresses and skirts. As one alumna of the 1950s put it in a recent issue of Denison Magazine, wearing Bermuda Shorts was one thing, but wearing them in front of Doane was a cheeky bit of rebellion—albeit a pretty tempered one.

But dancing the jitterbug while wearing Bermuda shorts? That must have had the administration wondering what the world might be coming to.
