Our underground parking garage eliminated on street parking, making campus prettier and safer. We also used the roof of the parking garage to create the Reese-Shakelford Common, a beautiful green space for campus events.

If you visit campus at night be sure to try a Snagel at the Bandersnatch. The Snagel, a perfectly toasted bagel topped with smooth cream cheese and hearty sprinkle of brown sugar, is one of many treats on the menu at our student-managed coffee house, the Bandersnatch. You can also enjoy concerts and poetry readings there.

Denison's historic Barney-Davis Hall, home of English and Enviromental Studies majors, was renovated with special attention to environmental issues. For example, the carpet is made of recycled pop bottles, and south facing windows, skylights and transoms allow for maximum use of natural light and solar heat gain.

Swasey Observatory has two 8-inch reflecting telescopes and a 9-inch refracting telescope that looks like something out of a Jules Verne novel. They are fitted for astrophotography and offer students incredible views of the moon, the spot on Jupiter, and the rings of Saturn. The observatory also houses an astronomy library and dark rooms. http://deniso.nu/1m6cDDt

Story
Tagline
An independent, coeducational, residential college of liberal arts and sciences founded in 1831.
Introduction
As one of the nation's leading liberal arts colleges, Denison University offers an authentic education in the fine arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Our purpose is to inspire and educate our students to become autonomous thinkers, discerning moral agents and active citizens of a democratic society. Through an emphasis on active learning, we engage students in the liberal arts, which fosters self-determination and demonstrates the transformative power of education. We envision our students' lives as based upon rational choice, a firm belief in human dignity and compassion unlimited by cultural, racial, sexual, religious or economic barriers, and directed toward an engagement with the central issues of our time.
