What is a Denison Club?
Each year, more than 80 special events are hosted for the Denison family both on campus and around the globe, all providing opportunities to connect with Denisonians of all ages. Being a Denisonian has its privileges, and Alumni Relations wants you to take full advantage of the resources and programs it offers. Denison Club events are open to all Denisonians—alumni (with or without a Denison diploma), parents of current and former students, current and former faculty members, and anyone who is simply a friend of the college. Denison Club “membership” is a state of mind.
Examples of club events include: professional athletic events, Freshman Welcome parties, sorting food at an area food bank, After work social, hosting Denison faculty for lectures, and so much more. Events are selected by the local club leadership and each club hosts a unique set of events throughout the year.
What is the misson of the Clubs program?
The overall mission of the clubs program is to ensure healthy and long-term relationships with Denison’s alumni, parents and friends across all generations by:
- Reaffirming pride and commitment in Denison
- Bringing Denison to all alumni, parents and friends, wherever they may be
- Uniting Denison alumni, parents and friends in fellowship
- Fostering healthy relationships for the advancement of the University
- Keeping individuals connected to Denison
- Celebrating Denison’s continued excellence.
