Worst college ever.Quite BrightAnimal Studies
Worst college ever.
First off, when I looked at the school, the soccer coach was the worst woman I had ever met. I mean she bragged about not returning players for the next season and about bringing in D1 players and not even playing them. She was a complete bitch; all she did was talk about herself, "in MY 32 years" and "MY team". Plus she didn't even take the time to get to know me or my family and was just plain rude. The tour was nice, the campus was gorgeous! But the funny thing was, while the sidewalks and other buildings were breaking down and crumbling, the athletic facility was state of the art and gorgeous. Their priorities were straight, huh? Then we didn't even meet any admissions counselor, I was interviewed by a student! They would not be reading my essays and submission forms.

For some dumb reason, I chose to attend Denison. Now I'm a very very extroverted person. I decided to join tri delta, since that was basically the only things to do on campus. And all they did was party and gossip; the most stereotypical orginization in the world. Then I fell behind on my studies, and the teachers did not attempt to work with me, even though I attended every class. All in all, this college is beyond elitist and if you're like that, then this is the perfect college for you. If you're a considerate and good human being AVOID THIS SCHOOL!

I was really excited to attend Denison, toQuite BrightBiology
I was really excited to attend Denison, to experience greek life and live on such a beautiful campus. The education is great, but between the secret society that hates on women in positions of power, the sexual assaults, the crappy food, the lack of things to do unless you have a car or want to party all weekend, the dorms that constantly need repairs, and the way I was treated at my on campus job; I won't be returning.The pros: Athletic facilities are very nice and I found faculty to be very helpful and engaging. I wouldn't recommend it because there are a lot of other schools with the same level of education that do not have what I mentioned above, or at the very least are actually trying to do something about these issues.

This school is terrible.BrightBiology
This school is terrible. The food isn't great, the dean is hidden, the gestapo campus security are proud to violate your rights, the students are almost all white rich kids, the teachers are awful and give more homework than an ivy league, so many unreported/unfollowed rapes, arsons, robberies, so many drugs, so much alcohol, required to drink and party to have a social life, awful and unorganised clubs, just an all around awful school. 0/5, would not waste my time again
