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

Rude awakening

It was early—before noon—on a Saturday morning in the fall of 1974. With no
concern for the sleepy inhabitants inside East Hall, an Adytum photographer rapped
hard on every door of the basement hallway, flatly shouting “Yearbook!” The
students stepped out into the dark cinder block hall, bleary, in their underwear, not
yet camera-ready. “Everybody outside in two minutes,” the photographer called.

“I don’t remember which of us had the first-rate idea to dress in ‘ironic formal,’” says
James Hale ’78, “but we used both of those two minutes to find our neckties and line
up outside the back door.”

“Take a moment to appreciate our trim physiques, our hair,  and our excellent wit,”
says Hale. “One of those things hasn’t changed.”
