School Info:

Denison's academic mission is to educate our students to become independent thinkers and active citizens of a democratic society. Distinguishing features of Denison's educational program are its hand-crafted, interactive, highly interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning, and a commitment to a learning community that fosters sensitivity to diverse perspectives. Denison also distinguishes itself by its residential nature. Students that attend Denison should expect to live on the campus all four years. It is through this practiced living/learning approach that the college provides a unique academic experience. Students at Denison not only learn from top scholars with training from some of the best universities in the world, but also from fellow students who bring to the college a diverse set of intellectual, socio-economic, geographical and experiential life experiences. Given this ethos, students enjoy a dynamic learning environment theoretically twenty four hours a day and seven days a week.

Team Info:

Denison boasts a robust fencing program with full men's and women's teams. Though we are currently a club team, we compete in the Midwest Fencing Conference against Div I, II, III varsity and other club teams. We also compete at NACs and the USACFC National College Club Championships.
