Dear Denison Student:

DENISON

UNIVERSITY

CLASS OF

2018

As you get ready to start the orientation process, I wanted to welcome you to the Denison community. At Denison, there are multiple paths to your education. You are going to be presented with opportunities galore. Each student gets to be the architect of their own Denison experience. This means making wise choices about how you want to take advantage of the next four years. At its core, a liberal arts education prepares you to think critically, understand profoundly and connect broadly. It is an education that will prepare you for a vibrant life. You will learn to ask better questions, grapple with complexity and uncertainty, and thrive in environments marked by change and diversity. In other words, our goal is make sure the next four years are fantastic ones and that we prepare you for success post-Denison in your professional, personal, and civic pursuits. Orientation is the start of the process. As you prepare, I would offer three pieces of advice: First, take full advantage of the orientation process. Every piece of the process has been carefully developed to help you get off to a great start. Second, be willing to take some risk. It’s important to push outside your comfort zone. Live with people who may come from vastly different backgrounds. Select an August orientation trip that might be a little different for you. And as you think about fall classes, consider taking something in an area that is new to you. Third, if you need help ask for it. Denison is all about relationships. You will learn quickly that our community is a place where people care about each other and want to see everybody succeed and thrive. This is my first year at Denison. During my first semester, I came to appreciate so many aspects of our college. You are going to work with faculty who are among the best educators in the world. Your classmates will be smart, engaged, multi-talented and nice. You are joining a community that is steeped in traditions and values. This is a welcoming place that is both comforting and challenging at the same time. You will bring passions to Denison and develop new ones while you are here. I am excited to get to know you. Anne (my wife) and I will look forward to welcoming you to campus and hosting you at our home during August Orientation for the traditional First-Year picnic dinner. Sincerely,

Adam S. Weinberg, Ph.D. President

Dear Denisonian:

DENISON

UNIVERSITY

CLASS OF

2018

Congratulations on your admission to Denison and welcome to our community! We look forward to meeting you and the rest of the great Class of 2018. This notebook contains information you will need to get started at Denison.

• Please review the list of due dates and associated information in the "Getting Started" section of this notebook. You’ll see that we expect to receive materials back from you as early as May 19th!

• Please note that yellow pages indicate that action may be required. When possible, please complete and submit forms electronically. Forms can be found at [http://denison.edu/campus/ first-year/incoming-students]. Forms that must be submitted manually are either included in this notebook, or will be mailed to you under separate cover. These forms will also be available as PDF files on the First-Year website.

• Although your Health Form isn’t due until July 1, you should arrange your appointment with your health care provider immediately, as many physicians schedule several months in advance for routine physical exams. Please note that your Health Form (and return envelope) was provided in a separate package addressed to your parents. This form cannot be completed on line. General information about Health Services is contained in this notebook.

We would like to draw your attention to two opportunities that you will have this summer to meet other incoming students and faculty and staff. The first is June Orientation. This is an optional program where you can spend two days on campus learning about Denison’s liberal arts curriculum and registering for your fall classes. You will also have ample time to socialize with your classmates. Many of our students say that June Orientation is one of their favorite Denison experiences. Sessions fill up fast, so be sure to sign up online soon. Additional information about the program can be found in the “Orientations” section of this notebook. The second opportunity you do not want to miss is attending one of our August pre-orientation programs. In the front pocket of this notebook, you will find brochures describing five of these pre-orientations. Each one gives students an opportunity to have a different kind of experience. You can do service, go cycling, hike outdoors, learn about sustainable farming, or be artistic in an urban environment. None of these trips requires that you have experience. You just need to be willing to participate enthusiastically. All of these trips are led by faculty and upper-class students, so attending one of the pre-orientations is a great way to meet them as well as your fellow classmates. All members of the Denison University faculty and staff wish you the best for an enjoyable and productive summer. We look forward to your Induction as the Class of 2018 on Sunday, August 24 at 7:00 pm, when we begin what will surely be an exciting year for us all.

DENISON

UNIVERSITY

CLASS OF

2018

June Orientation focuses on the academic preparation and course registration of the entering class. You will receive a “June-O” brochure containing a complete schedule prior to your session. The goals of June-O are: • • • •

To introduce students and parents to the academic policies, procedures, and expectations of Denison, including the General Education Program, majors and minors, and other campus opportunities. To register new students for fall semester courses. Students will leave orientation sessions with their fall course schedule completed. To determine advanced placement credit, transfer credit and foreign language enrollment levels. Language and Math placement exams will be administered. To assist students with the transition to college by establishing a relationship with a “mentor team” consisting of a temporary faculty advisor and an upper-class student mentor.

Who Should Attend? We plan programs for parents as well as students. We encourage parents to attend, but understand that some cannot be away from other obligations at that time of year. There are no programs for younger siblings. How Much Will It Cost? The fee for students attending June Orientation is $225, which covers room, board and programs. Parents may room on campus for $50 for one parent or $75 for two parents (in one room). If you believe you will receive a Pell Grant, please notify us, as we may be able to waive your fees for June Orientation. Must I Stay On Campus? All students will sleep and have meals on campus. Parents are invited to do the same. However, some parents will prefer the amenities of an area hotel or inn (our residence halls do not provide air conditioning). Parents not lodging on campus will still be able to eat meals at the campus dining hall at no additional charge. Students occupy one residence hall, sharing rooms with classmates. Parents, housed in a separate residence hall, normally are assigned a single room per family. In the event an unusual space limitation should occur, single parents may be asked to room together. When Do I Pay? Students pay their registration fee when they register on-line. This is the only way to secure a place in one of the June-O sessions. There is an additional $50 refundable key deposit for each room, payable upon arrival. How Do I Pay? Registration on-line must be paid by credit card. If a student is Pell Grant eligible, all June O registration fees are waived. On-site expenses (key deposits) may be paid only by cash or check; we are unable to accept credit or debit cards.

Is There An Airport Shuttle? Denison will provide transportation to and from the airport at specified times. Arrivals and departures can be expedited if your luggage is carry-on. The Denison Shuttle will leave the airport on Day One at 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. The Shuttle will depart from campus on Day Two at 12:30 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. Please book flights accordingly. It is difficult to accommodate any arrivals outside of this time frame. What If My Flight Is Delayed? Occasionally flights are delayed due to weather, etc. If you are utilizing the June-O shuttle and your flight arrives after the vans have already departed for Denison, it is your responsibility to obtain transportation to the University. Options include renting a car, taking a cab or obtaining space on an airport shuttle. You are responsible for any expenses incurred using alternate transportation services. Please notify us by calling 740587-6224 if your flight will be delayed. Can I Arrive By Bus? Should you elect to arrive by bus, Denison will provide transportation to and from the Greyhound Bus Station in Columbus, Ohio. The University van will pick up students and their families around 9:00 a.m. on the morning of Day One and will return them to the station by 2:30 p.m. on Day Two. Therefore, you should not make reservations on any bus leaving before 2:30 p.m. What If I Can’t Attend? You will register for classes during the summer. Please see the Fall Semester Telephone Registration form. Course registration materials will be sent to you in early June and you will have the option of registering by phone with assistance from a faculty member, or by mail. Do I Lose Out...? Students who are unable to attend June Orientation are not at a disadvantage in course registration for the fall. The University Registrar reserves a certain number of class spaces for later registration, and these students may register for class by telephone upon the conclusion of the final June Orientation session. Students can attend to other necessary tasks at August Orientation such as obtaining an ID card and taking placement exams. What Happens Between June and August? We will be in touch with you through mailings. Details about August Orientation will be sent to you in August from the Office of First-Year Programs. Housing roommate notifications will be sent to you the first week in August from Residential Education. Do Sessions Close Out? Yes. As the May 19 deadline draws near, it becomes necessary to close sessions if they become full. Please check the website for updates to session closings [http://denison.edu/campus/first-year]. Register early to get the session that best fits your schedule. When will I get my Denison e-mail? Your Denison e-mail and other account information will be mailed to you prior to June Orientation, and we recommend that you access and begin using your accounts as soon as possible to gain familiarity. Denison will also contact you through this email account; thus it is important that you check it regularly over the summer.

Deadline: June 2, 2014

In addition to June Orientation, Denison offers a wide variety of optional pre-orientation programs, prior to August Orientation (required), which will help you to expand your horizons, deepen your understanding of yourself, and connect with other first-year students who share your interests and passions. Pre-orientations provide students a unique, challenging, and enjoyable transition to life at Denison by forming bonds and friendships with other entering first-years in small group settings prior to August Orientation. Applications for all Pre-Orientation Programs listed below are to be completed and submitted online and can be found at [http://denison.edu/campus/first-year/incoming-students]. If you for any reason cannot complete your application electronically, please contact the Office of First-Year Programs. Pre-Orientations offered: (Descriptions of each to follow) • Denison Experience in Urban Culture and Expression (DEUCE) • Denison Outdoor Orientation (DOO) • Denison Service Orientation (DSO) • Denison Sustainable Farming Orientation (DSFO) • Denison Adventure Cycling Orientation (Bike-O) • Paving the Way (PTW) - Sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs • International Student Orientation (required for students with visas, sponsored by the Office of International Student Services)

DEUCE (Denison Experience in Urban Culture and Expression) The Denison Experience in Urban Culture and Expression (DEUCE) is designed for students interested in urban arts and culture—everything from murals to hip-hop to music in the parks—and who think about the role the arts play in social change. Approximately 24 students from the Class of 2018 will travel together to Philadelphia to observe the city’s art, music, dance and architecture. Participants along with Denison faculty, DEUCE student staff, and area artists, will consider how visual and performance art are used within different cultural communities to express themselves and to effect change. While no prior experience in the arts is required, students will learn how to create artistic works almost daily, in collaboration or by themselves. Participants should also expect a reasonable amount of city walking. The DEUCE begins on Sunday, August 17 when students arrive on campus and move into the residence halls. Participants will spend Sunday preparing for the trip and will then travel to Philadelphia on Monday, August 18. Monday through Thursday will be spent traveling around the city in groups to attend performances, to visit studios, to see public art, to talk with artists about the work they do, and to think about and begin the work they themselves will produce. Participants return to campus on Friday, August 22 and will spend Saturday finishing and installing their artwork. There is a charge of $300 for this program; Pell grant recipients who wish to attend may have their fees waived. For further information, please consult the program brochure or the First-Year Programs website at http://denison.edu/campus/first-year. Those accepted into the program will be notified by July 1, 2014.

(pre-orientations continued)

DOO (Denison Outdoor Orientation) The Denison Outdoor Orientation (DOO) provides an opportunity for 48 students in the class of 2018 to engage in a unique, challenging and fun transition to Denison by backpacking through the National Forest in Kentucky. There, in groups of eight, each led by a faculty-student staff team, you will traverse trails across forested hills and valleys— more spectacular terrain than many associate with the area. The three days on the trail will afford you ample opportunities for informal education, fellowship and recreation, in addition to learning more about the Denison community you are entering. While you are responsible for providing much of your personal gear, DOO will provide backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, pads, etc. for those who need them. The basic schedule has you arriving on campus Monday afternoon, August 18; on-campus preparation and departure, August 19; on the trail, August 19-22; return to campus, August 22. There is a charge of $250 for this program; Pell grant recipients who wish to participate may have their fees waived. For further information, consult the program brochure or the First-Year Program Office or website. Those accepted in the program will be notified by July 1, 2014.

DSO (Denison Service Orientation) The Denison Service Orientation (DSO) is an opportunity for approximately 24 students in the class of 2018 to engage in a rewarding, stimulating, thought provoking, and enjoyable transition to Denison by traveling to Washington, D.C. for a service experience related to homelessness and hunger. During the program, students will engage in intense community service. The trip will be both physically and emotionally challenging at times, but opportunities in leadership and group building activities, and discussion and reflection on the vast issues dealt with in service will foster support and bonds of friendship. The DSO will run from Saturday, August 16 to Friday, August 22. It is vital to the experience that you attend the entire program. Following various orientation and preparatory activities, the group will travel to Washington, D.C. on Monday, August 18 and will volunteer at social service agencies. Our days require walking significant distances, working long hours (often involving manual labor); so students should have stamina and good health to participate fully in the experience. Time has been set aside so that you can explore and experience the city. Arriving back on campus on August 22, you will then transition to the general August Orientation which begins on August 24. The cost is $250 for each participant and covers all meals, transportation and lodging. Pell Grant recipients who wish to participate may have their fees waived. We are looking for students who have the potential to become student leaders and to embrace a service lifestyle, but prior leadership and service experiences are not required. For further information, consult the First-Year website at http://denison.edu/campus/first-year. Those accepted into the program will be notified by July 1, 2014.

DSFO (Denison Sustainable Farming Orientation) The Denison Sustainable Farming Orientation offers an opportunity for 20 members of the Class of 2018 to practice sustainable farming by living and working on the Flying J Farm, a sustainable farm located 20 minutes from Denison. The purpose of this program is to provide students with a unique, challenging, and enjoyable transition to life at Denison by forming bonds and friendships with other entering first-years, while working on the farm. Students will camp in tents, cook their own meals using ingredients from the farm, and work on projects such as harvesting, preserving (canning, drying, freezing), repairing and building trails, and managing farm animals. Other activities may include trips to other sustainable farms in the area and a trip to the Northstar CafĂŠ. The basic schedule has students moving in on Monday, August 18, leaving for the farm that evening, and returning to campus on August 22. There is a charge of $250 for this program. Pell Grant recipients who wish to participate may have their fees waived. DSFO will provide tents and farming equipment. We also have some sleeping bags available. Students should bring their own sleeping bag if they have one. Those accepted into the program will be notified by July 1, 2014.

The Denison Adventure Cycling Orientation offers an opportunity for 10 members of the Class of 2018 to take a four-day, back-roads excursion through the beautiful natural areas of central Ohio. Day 1 and Day 4 each feature a 70-mile ride which will be taken at a leisurely pace over the course of a full day. Several scenic areas of central Ohio will be explored including the Kokosing Gap, the Mohican River Valley, the Walhonding River, the Rocky Fork Watershed and the Wakatomika River Valley. Other activities may include a canoe ride, mini-golf, and GoKarts. Students will lodge in a log cabin with electricity, plumbing, and bunk beds. The purpose of this trip is to provide students with an opportunity to get to know fellow classmates in a small group environment.

Paving the Way (PTW) Sponsored by the Office of Multi-Cultural Student Affairs (MCSA), Paving the Way (PTW) encourages all entering students to participate in this program, however its primary focus is to assist traditionally under-represented student populations in transitioning to the academic, cultural, and social climate at Denison University. This program, in its 18th year, traditionally begins three days before August Orientation and extends throughout the academic year. Sessions address academic success, ethnic and cultural identities, personal development, and an exploration of resources to build stronger relationships with Denison University. This is an on-campus preorientation and there is no cost to participants. Paving The Way plays an important role in assisting with students’ overall growth and development. Through a series of workshop opportunities and dialogue with upper class student ambassadors, faculty, staff and university alumni, incoming students have the opportunity to address, early on, the issues and concerns which directly impact their overall college experience. Additionally, opportunities are provided throughout the academic year for students to find ways to interact with each other. The Office of Multi-Cultural Student Affairs is located on the fourth floor of Slayter Union (401-404). We may be contacted via phone or the web. We look forward to working with you and we hope that you want to be a part of the 2014 Paving the Way program, which will take place August 20-23, 2014. Please note that upon your arrival on August 20th, you will check into your assigned residence hall. If you are planning to attend the Paving the Way Pre-Orientation program, please complete the registration form located at: [http://denison.edu/campus/first-year/incoming-students]. Submitted applications will be directed to Erik S. Farley, Associate Dean of Students and Director of Multi-Cultural Student Affairs.

Denison has a strong commitment to our international community – students and faculty who are foreign nationals, U.S. citizens who have international experience through work or family connections, and U.S. nationals who identify themselves as global citizens. As a community, we take seriously the challenges associated with learning to work, live and create in a world that is wonderfully diverse and increasingly interdependent. We look forward to meeting you in August and to your active participation in the intellectual and community life at Denison. We invite you to begin your college experience by participating in the Pre-Orientation for Students Coming from Abroad, which will take place August 20-23. This program is especially valuable for students who will transition to a new culture and/or country as they begin their college career at Denison, whether that student is a foreign national or a U.S. citizen who has lived outside of the U.S. Over the past decade, as Denison has become increasingly diverse, dual citizens, recent immigrants and U.S. citizens with significant international experience have elected to participate in our program. The program offers the opportunity to arrive on campus several days before the First-Year August Orientation program in order to acclimate to the Denison campus and meet and learn from upperclass students, faculty and staff members. Participants will learn about the many opportunities and services available to students in a relaxed environment. The session topics include information on the academic program, faculty-student relations and expectations, employment on campus, cross-cultural communication and regulations affecting non-immigrant residents. Our past experience suggests that the pre-orientation program provides a valuable support network for the students throughout the first year. Students with visas are required to attend the pre-orientation program. Dual citizens, permanent residents, and U.S. citizens who live abroad are encouraged to attend. Participants should plan to arrive on campus on Sunday, August 17th or Monday, August 18th. All students who plan to attend the program must complete and submit the International Student PreOrientation registration form located at [http://denison.edu/campus/first-year/incoming-students]. Please do not submit the form until your travel plans are finalized. Registered participants will be permitted to move into their residence halls upon arrival beginning on Sunday, August 17th. Please note that campus housing is not open to family members and will not be available to students prior to August 17th. Please do not hesitate to submit your questions via the ISS@denison.edu email address. We look forward to meeting you in August! Marilyn B. Andrew Director, International Student Services

2018

The Office of Residential Education & Housing at Denison University is dedicated to providing an environment for students that supports and enhances the academic mission of the university. It is our goal to offer a standard of living that is conducive to communities that foster and celebrate respect, individuality, integrity, and personal responsibility. To this end, we seek to promote a healthy living environment where residents will learn about themselves and one another. As a student at Denison and member of the campus community, you will be expected to contribute to the aforementioned principles through your involvement and investment in Denison University outside the classroom. The Residential Education staff is committed to providing opportunities that meet your social, educational, recreational and cultural needs and goals. For many students, the personal growth that comes from living on campus rivals even that which is achieved in the classroom. As such, Denison University is a four-year residential campus where all students are required to live in university housing. Married students, single parents, and unmarried students living with their parents or guardians within 25 miles of campus may request exemption from the residency requirement. The following information is intended to answer some of your initial questions regarding housing at Denison University. For more comprehensive information, please go to our website at www.denison.edu/campus/housing. Please know how happy we are that you have decided to attend Denison. Your four years here will be academically challenging, personally rewarding, and unforgettable. As you peruse the following pages, please feel free to contact our office if you have additional questions. We look forward to welcoming you into this community and your new home. Welcome!

ousing Assignments: Policies and Procedures

RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT Denison is a four year residential college which seeks to enhance the liberal arts experience. Living within the residence halls is an integral and expected part of each student’s Denison experience. Married students living with spouses, single parents, unmarried students living with their parents or guardians within 25 miles of campus, and students 25 years or older may request exemption from the residency requirement.

HOUSING FOR NEW STUDENTS New students are asked to complete and return a Housing Preference Form (due June 2, 2014) when they are accepted for admission into the university. This form can be found at [http://denison.edu/campus/first-year/ incoming-students] and should be completed and submitted electronically. Students will be notified of the housing assignments by mail at the beginning of August. Utilizing the information on the Housing Preference Form, new students are paired with roommates and are given housing assignments. While every effort is made to accommodate students’ housing preferences, we cannot guarantee that a student will receive her/his first choice. The Office of Residential Education and Housing highly discourages new students from making their own roommate matches. However, if students would like to make a roommate request, both students need to submit the request in an email to Donna Davis, Housing Coordinator, at housing@denison.edu. All requests must be mutual and received by July 1, 2014. Roommate requests after that date will not be granted. Students with a special need or disability that necessitates specific housing arrangements should contact our office for information on available facilities and submit medical documentation to the Health Center by July 1, 2014.

HOUSING OPTIONS As a residential college, Denison offers a wide variety of living options to its students during their four years on campus. There are 22 traditional residence halls; apartment complexes; Gilpatrick Center (Student Research and Fellowships house); the Homestead (environmentally-focused alternative living cabins); and satellite houses (near-campus houses owned and operated by the university). Each building is unique, and within our residence hall system we offer singles, doubles, triples, quads, suites, and apartments. First-year students are primarily housed in first year-only halls, generally in doubles, triples or quads. The residence halls are clustered on four areas of the campus: East Quad, West Quad, North Quad, and South/Fine Arts Quad. Each hall and quad has its own unique atmosphere and there are many advantages to each of these different living environments.

RESIDENTIAL LIVING: NUTS & BOLTS It is important that you inform yourself of University policies prior to your arrival at Denison. Please refer to www.denison.edu/campus/conduct.

RESIDENCE POLICIES While a complete description of the Code of Student Conduct and University guidelines is available in the Student Handbook, we have highlighted some of the most relevant residence hall policies and procedures.

ALCOHOL In support of the academic mission of the University, we are concerned with the effects that the use and abuse of alcohol have on the quality of life in our residence halls. Therefore, we uphold both state and federal laws regarding alcohol use. You must be twenty-one (21) years of age to legally purchase, consume, or possess alcohol. In addition, the possession and consumption of alcohol is limited to designated private areas of residence halls. All First-Year halls are alcohol-free.

ACCESS TO RESIDENCE HALLS All residence halls are locked 24 hours a day to provide security for the residents. Telephones are available on the exterior of each residence hall for use by visitors. A student’s ID will provide access to her/his own residence hall 24 hours a day, and to other residence halls during designated hours.

AIR CONDITIONERS Air conditioners are not permitted in student rooms without prior approval from the Health Center. Air conditioners will only be approved for well-documented medical reasons. If approved, the student is responsible for providing the air conditioner and installation charges or fees ($100). Physical Plant installs the units after the student submits a work order. Some rooms, such as first floor rooms, cannot accommodate AC units due to security screens. Contact Whisler Center for Student Wellness for more information.

BICYCLES Students are urged to use the bike racks outside of the residence halls or store bicycles in their rooms. Bicycles may not be stored in hallways or stairwells. Students are encouraged to register their bicycles with Campus Security and Safety.

CANDLES For fire-safety reasons, candles and other open flames are not permitted in residence hall rooms.

COOKING For fire-safety and sanitation purposes, cooking is prohibited in student rooms. Cooking and cooking appliances are not permitted in student rooms.

DRUGS The University considers the possession, use, sale or distribution of illegal drugs detrimental to the University mission. Students who participate in these illegal activities are subject to conduct action.

HALOGEN LAMPS For fire-safety reasons, halogen lamps are not permitted in student rooms. LOFTS Students are prohibited from bringing in lofts. The university provides loftable bed equipment for most rooms at no cost.

MAIL SERVICE Each student is assigned a mailbox through Slayter Union. This information is included with the housing assignment letter.

MAILING ADDRESS/LUGGAGE/TRUNKS: ALL student packages, luggage, or trunks should be sent to the student’s street address exactly as follows: Example: Student Name Jane Smith Denison University Denison University (Slayter Box number only) Slayter Union 7512 Slayter Union Granville, OH 43023 Granville, OH 43023

PARKING All motor vehicles must be registered with the Student Accounts Office. Each registered vehicle will be assigned an area of campus in which to park upon payment of the appropriate parking fee.

PROPERTY DAMAGE Students are responsible for the care of University properties in the rooms, facilities, lounges, public areas, and the campus in general. Residents are responsible both for their own rooms and for common areas of their residence hall. All residents of a building may be held accountable to cover the cost of repairs for damages that occur in common spaces.

REFRIGERATORS Students are permitted to bring small refrigerators (4.0 cubic ft. or smaller) to keep in their residence hall rooms. There is no University refrigerator rental program. Micro-Fridges (refrigerator with microwave) are not permitted on campus.

STORAGE The University expects students to keep all room furniture in the assigned residence hall room. The University cannot provide coverage for any loss or damage to personal property. Students are encouraged to have personal property covered through fire or “homeowners” policies.

SMOKING All residence halls are smoke free.

PET POLICY Due to a variety of health-related issues, pets are not permitted in student rooms within University residence halls. Fish in aquariums up to a maximum of 10 gallons are allowed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: When will I receive my housing assignment? Housing assignments will be mailed from the University during the first week in August. The name(s), address(es), and telephone number(s) of your roommate(s) will be included.

Am I automatically assigned a meal plan? All students are required to participate in a meal plan, except those students who reside off campus and those who live in certain residence halls which have apartments with kitchens. You may choose from the options. A student may change her/his meal plan option during the first two weeks of each semester. A student will be automatically assigned a plan if they do not sign up for one.

Is it possible to come to campus prior to the scheduled arrival time? Only members of athletic teams and those student employees and organization members who have been approved to return early may arrive before the scheduled date. We must adhere to this guideline in order to facilitate the completion of scheduled renovation projects, summer housing transition, and final preparation for students’ arrival.

Can I stay on campus during break periods? All students are expected to leave campus when the residence halls are closed for scheduled breaks. Athletes and other students who are approved to stay on campus during a break may be required to relocate to a residence hall that will be open for Break Housing. Denison University offers a limited break housing program intended for full break stay. Due to security/safety and staffing issues, each student intending to reside on campus during break MUST have a legitimate reason for needing to be in residence. The following would constitute legitimate reasons: • International student with no family residing in the U.S. or restricted funding • Athlete with sport obligations over the break • Research student with required work to be completed over break • Student employee with break obligations to an on campus job • Participant in a sponsored leadership or academic program

What if I am having difficulty getting along with my roommate? Adjusting to a new roommate is a process that involves time and effort. First, we encourage you to try and talk with your roommate about any issues or concerns. If this is unsuccessful, then feel free to contact your Resident Assistant (RA), Head Resident (HR) or Assistant Director (AD) for assistance. Room changes are permitted only after all other options have been considered.

Is there access to an airport or bus station? There is a Greyhound bus station in downtown Columbus (approximately 30 miles). Port Columbus International Airport is located on the east side of Columbus (approximately 25–30 minutes travel time). While there is no official University shuttle service available, students most frequently carpool using the Ride Board, share a taxicab, or use Columbus Coach, a private sedan service, (1-800-476-3004). The University provides limited shuttle service at break periods. For more information contact the Campus Services Office.

How are the residence halls cleaned and maintained? Housekeeping services are not provided for student rooms, suites, private baths, or suite baths. Students are responsible for cleaning and maintaining these areas. All public areas and public bathrooms are serviced daily, Monday–Friday, with limited cleaning services provided on weekends.

Are there computer labs on campus? Yes! While a number of students bring their own computer, many students take advantage of the computer labs located on campus. There are computer labs located in several academic buildings. In addition, students often use the computer stations located in or near each Service Center on the residential quads. Wireless networking is available over most of campus.

Supporting the belief that co-curricular activities are vital and important components of your overall educational experience at Denison, the Campus Leadership and Involvement Center’s (CLIC) mission is to foster meaningful experiences, develop a vibrant community and create lifelong memories for students. Opportunities for your involvement on campus are unlimited. There are approximately 180 campus organizations, including campus governance, club sports, special interest groups, spirit groups, performing arts ensembles, multicultural clubs, service-oriented organizations, fraternities and sororities, honorary and academic organizations and several student publications. During the first full week of classes each fall semester, CLIC sponsors the Involvement Fair where the majority of campus organizations set up booths to recruit new members. The Involvement Fair is the best time to familiarize yourself with Denison’s campus organizations and make connections with students with similar interests. The Campus Leadership and Involvement Center supports a myriad of programs throughout the year. Programs range from bands and comedians to trips and special events. Many of these programs are sponsored by the University Programming Council (UPC), a student group responsible for planning campus-wide programs for students. Typically, UPC programs occur late Friday night. In past years, UPC has sponsored comedians, concerts, trips, and other novelty activities. UPC and CLIC often co-sponsor large events along with other campus organizations. Every year, CLIC teams up with UPC to present the Annual Gala. Working with a different theme each year, the Gala is an extravaganza of food, entertainment, dancing, and decoration that encompasses the entire Slayter Union building and all of the Denison community is invited – students, faculty, and staff. In addition, there is a student operated coffee house on campus, the Bandersnatch. Located on the East Quad, the Bandersnatch is open Sunday through Thursday from 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. and on Friday and Saturday from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. for late night studying and entertainment. It is not unusual to find folk singers or students reading original poetry in the coffee house on any given evening. A very popular program in the Bandersnatch is the student open mic night when the stage is yours to share your talent. CLIC works with a group of peer leadership consultants, the Leadership Fellows, to produce leadership institutes and programs each year. Opportunities include off campus ropes courses, social justice workshops, the world renowned LeaderShape Institute, and Denison’s award-winning institute for first year students, D.U. Lead. . As you consider how you would like to be involved as a leader on campus, D.U. Lead can provide you with the skills and perspective to maximize your experience. Look for more information about this program by mail this summer. As you can see, many opportunities await you when you arrive at Denison. In order to help you navigate all the ways to be involved at Denison, CLIC offers peer involvement educators from the CLICkers student team. Call, email, or visit CLIC on the third floor of Slayter Union to setup a 1-on-1 appointment to receive individualized involvement guidance specific to your interests, passions, and time availability. This is a great opportunity for you to explore your options for involvement from an experienced upperclassman student leader. We are excited to help you find where you CLIC on campus!

The Denison Community Association responds to social and environmental needs while promoting reciprocal learning, personal growth, and lifelong commitment to community, direct service, and responsible stewardship. At Denison, you’ll find that community engagement is intimately tied to the work we do both in and out of the classroom. As Denison’s largest student-run organization, the Denison Community Association (DCA) promotes a three-tiered model of service learning—education, direct service, and reflection. Even if you’ve never done any sort of community service before, there’s a place for you in DCA! Check out the opportunities listed below: •

Saturday Service: each Saturday, DCA hosts a volunteer opportunity in the local community. Open to first-year through senior students. Transportation provided.

Service Committees: for weekly volunteer opportunities, join one of DCA’s service committees, ranging anywhere from After School Mentoring and Tutoring to Habitat for Humanity.

Break Away: alternative winter break trips. Small groups travel to sites such as Selma, Alabama and East St. Louis, Illinois to grapple with large-scale issues, including Education Reform, Poverty, and Homelessness and Hunger.

One-Day Service Projects: participate in national service events such as Make a Difference Day; 9/11Day of Service and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Service Challenge.

Don’t have a car on campus? No worries! The Alford Center for Service Learning has access to transportation to get you to volunteer sites in the local community. Where to plug in...

Writing plays a central role in a liberal arts education. It is not a separate field of study but an integral part of all fields of study. Effective writers exhibit the following characteristics: • They take intellectual risks, creatively explore different ideas, and see the connection between critical reading, thinking, doing and writing. • They regard writing as both a product and a process; they develop and refine their own habits of researching and writing, practice and incorporate techniques of drafting and revising, view writing with a critical eye, and respond adeptly to feedback from other readers. • They understand that writers join a larger community; they see the writing process as participation in a broader, ongoing conversation, and are aware of the needs of diverse audiences. The Denison Writing Program encourages students to cultivate these habits of mind. The program develops writers who view writing as critical thinking and understand that writing is a means to explore and learn a subject. As a first-year student, you will start with a Writing Workshop designed to introduce students to the qualities of college-level writing. You will take at least two Writing Intensive Seminars to build on the workshop foundation. One of these seminars is during your Sophomore year; the other can often be woven into your major. You will find that all students have additional writing requirements within their fields of study. In Denison’s Writing Program, you should expect multiple opportunities to perfect your writing skills through many courses integrated over the whole of your four years. Writing is a lifelong endeavor that Denisonians carry with them and continue to nurture in their post-graduate careers.

The Office of First-Year Programs coordinates academic and co-curricular programs and services for firstyear students in an effort to achieve the following goals: (1) to help students develop and refine the academic skills and habits of mind necessary for success in college, especially in the areas of writing and research; (2) to help students feel that they can be “at home” and productive in the Denison environment; and (3) to promote students’ progress toward timely completion of their degrees and achievement of their academic goals. Functions of this office include oversight of most of the college’s orientation programs and an array of social supports before and during the academic year. The office is responsible for the assignment of entering students’ academic advisors and works with both students and faculty on academic advising concerns. The office maintains a collaborative relationship with the Academic Support & Enrichment Center, as well as other offices of the college. The Dean of First-Year Students is available throughout the year to meet with students on a wide range of issues, including academic performance, personal adjustment concerns, and other issues related to navigating college life. The Office of First Year Programs is also responsible for overseeing academic advising for incoming students. All faculty at Denison serve as academic advisors, and as such are an important resource for everything from scheduling classes to navigating a major and preparing for a career after graduation. Academic advisors assist students as they assemble their course work and co-curricular activities into a coherent liberal arts education tailored to their own needs and interests. The Dean of First Year Students pairs all incoming students who do not take an FYS 103 with their academic advisors. FYS 103: Building Community are 1 credit seminars each limited to ten students and taught by a faculty member who is also the academic advisor for these students. This format creates the opportunity for academic advising to be even more structured and intentional. The reading and writing in these classes is also minimal allowing the focus to be on learning about Denison through engaged discussion with one another. Students get to know one another while also helping them better understand the community they have joined and their role and responsibilities within it. To assist your faculty advisor, complete and submit the Personal Advisor Data Form located at [http://denison.edu/campus/first-year/incoming-students].This information will be solely used for advisory purposes and will be shared only with those people assigned by the college to assist you.

Denison’s Music Department offers many opportunities in music performance. We provide private lessons for all instruments; group lessons in voice, piano and guitar; a wide variety of ensembles; and courses in music history, theory, Bluegrass, and computer music. Private lessons, ensembles, and music classes are open to all Denison students; you don’t have to be a music major to be involved. Private lessons and ensembles are taken for course credit and can be used to fulfill your general education requirements. Most first-year students register for four four-hour courses which leaves two hours free to take music lessons and/or participate in an ensemble. The best time to enroll for lessons and ensembles is during June Orientation, however, you can enroll as late as the second week of the term. Since you can add or drop classes through the first two weeks of the term, it is not too late to sign up for lessons or ensembles. Private lessons are scheduled at times that are mutually agreeable to the student and the instructor. To schedule your lesson, please stop by the Music Office in Burton Hall 101 (on the lower campus) during the first week of classes to arrange a time. A limited number of Private Lesson Scholarships are available. These awards cover the applied music fee. To apply for a scholarship, you will need to fill out an application in the Music Office. Scholarships are available for one-credit hour lessons. Practice rooms with pianos and music stands are located in the basement of Burton Hall and are open for use while the building is open. Secure lockers are available for instrument storage in Burton and Burke Halls. In addition, the department does have a number of instruments that are available for loan. A limited number of percussion practice rooms are available for students taking percussion lessons or an ensemble. You may request a locker, instrument, or a percussion practice room in the Music Office in Burton 101. Attached is a list of all the ensembles and private instructors. Any ensemble that is listed with an arranged class time schedules rehearsals around the student members’ class schedules. In order to schedule those rehearsals, stop by the Music Office (Burton 101), fill out a schedule, and submit that to the ensemble director. Groups that require auditions will hold them during the first week of classes. Students who are selected then add the additional credits to their registration with an “add-drop” form available in the Music Office or Registrar’s Office. The Music Theory Placement Examination will be given in the morning on the Saturday or Sunday before classes start. To register for the exam please call the Music Office at 740-587-6220. Please complete and submit the Music Lessons and Ensembles form online [http://denison.edu/campus/firstyear/incoming-students] if you are interested in participating in one or more of the musical ensembles at Denison or are interested in taking private lessons with a member of the music faculty. Even if you do not choose to complete this form, you can still sign up for lessons and ensembles through the second week of the semester. However, this form helps by giving us an early idea of which and how many students are planning to participate in music at Denison and what their abilities and interests are at the start. We hope you will keep your musical interests alive through a mix of lessons, ensembles, courses and concert attendance. Help us get a head start in gauging the level of interest in musical study and performance among members of the Class of 2018 by submitting the Music Lessons and Ensembles Form on the following page. Don’t hesitate to call us at 740-5876220 or stop by the Music Office in Burton 101 for questions or assistance.

Welcome, New Member of the Class of 2018! Are you interested in digging deeper into your spirituality or religious tradition while at Denison? Do you want to dialogue with others and learn from different faith perspectives (one of the great things about college!)? Opportunities to observe, practice and engage are here for you! Students at Denison come from so many different perspectives, traditions and backgrounds. We celebrate them all and offer opportunities to observe many of them. Whether you are religious or spiritual--or consider yourself to be neither--we are excited about what you bring to our campus, including all your questions, doubts and faith expressions. Exciting things are always happening at The Open House: Center for Religious and Spiritual Life. Make some time when you arrive on campus to visit us in our (wireless) Sacred Grounds Cafe´ and indulge in some complimentary (fairly traded) hot coffee or tea, and to say “Hello” to our staff. Please take a minute to complete the brief religious background and interest survey online at: [http:// denison.edu/campus/first-year/incoming-students]. We request your information in order to keep an accurate record of your presence and to tailor our programs. We are excited to meet you. All the best for a great year! Mark R.

Positions are available in the academic and administrative offices, the library, the athletic center and the Admissions Office. Duties range from performing clerical tasks to lifeguarding to giving tours of the campus. Students are neither guaranteed nor assigned jobs at Denison. It is the responsibility of the student to pursue and apply for jobs on campus as desired. To find a job on campus: Beginning in the middle of July, log in to your myDenison account with the login and password you were mailed in the spring. There will be an Employment “channel” on the left side of the page. Click on the option that says “See all available jobs” and then click “Search” without selecting any search tools. This will provide you with a list of all positions currently available. We encourage students who want a job on campus to apply early and to keep checking the web site every few days for new listings. Per Department of Homeland Security, all U.S. employees (including students) must complete a federal Form I-9 upon employment being offered.

The maximum number of hours a student can work during the academic year is 300. Students receive their pay through direct deposit to their personal bank account. Direct deposit of pay can be made to any bank within the Federal Reserve. **You should bring your bank account information with you; this can be either a voided check (a deposit slip will not work) or preprinted form from your bank that lists your bank’s routing number and your account number.

Driving up the hill to Denison definitely gives you the feeling you’re entering another kind of world, and of course you are, but that doesn’t mean you’re leaving the real world behind. In fact, the very best the outside world has to offer will be coming directly to you to see and hear without ever leaving the campus. The Vail Series is going to amaze you. A generous gift has endowed a musical performance program here that’s second to none and free for Denison students. You’ll hear famous and established artists known the world over, as well as promising new talents whose careers you’ll be able to follow the rest of your lives. Over the past few years, artists such as the BBC Concert Orchestra, Bela Fleck with Edgar Hussein and Edgar Meyer, Dailey and Vincent, Mark O’Connor Quartet, Russian National Orchestra, From the Top, Imani Winds, Renee Fleming, and YoYo Ma have all appeared on the Swasey Chapel stage as part of the Vail Series. And interaction with students outside the concert is a priority, bringing you closer to these legendary performers. Be sure to take a close look at the Vail Series schedule for the upcoming year, and mark your calendar for these exciting performances. You’ll always be able to say you heard them here first!

“ I am continually amazed at Denison University’s commitment to bringing live music to its campus. I have treasured each visit to Denison and have marveled at the warmth and the welcome from students. I very much admire the inspired artistic vision represented by the Vail Series and congratulate its founders.”

As a supplement to faculty advising, professional staff meet with students on an individual basis concerning academic personal matters that affect academics. Additionally, the Center coordinates a wide range of services, accommodations, and auxiliary services for students with disabilities. An incoming student, seeking academic accommodations or auxiliary services for his/her disability, needs to forward a copy of his/her most recent medical report or evaluation documenting the existence of the disability directly to the Academic Support & Enrichment Center. Please use the enclosed mailing label for your convenience. Please be aware that any materials submitted with the Denison Health Record Form will not be forwarded to the Academic Support & Enrichment Center. When submitting documentation, please note that: 1. Documentation must be current (within the past three years) and must be signed by the appropriate licensed professional, e.g. physician, psychologist, psychiatrist, learning specialist, etc. 2. Documentation must include the date the test(s) was administered and the specific battery of tests, including the results, used to make the diagnosis(es). 3. Documentation must list the specific diagnosis(es), recommended accommodations, and auxiliary services appropriate for the college level. Specific, reasonable accommodations and auxiliary services will be determined on a case-by-case basis by the Academic Support & Enrichment Center. The determination of accommodations will be made by utilizing required documentation, individual consultation with the student and, if needed, consultation with a licensed professional. For additional information about the Academic Support & Enrichment Center, an overview of the Tutoring Program, as well as the protocol for requesting disability accommodations, please visit the website at www. denison.edu/academics/support. The staff looks forward to meeting you during June Orientation or, if applicable, at the August Orientation Program to discuss Disability Services.

We will be open Monday - Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. prior to classes and Sunday (movein day) from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Additionally, our bookstore website is available 24/7 at www. denisonbookstore.com. Listed below are quick answers to some frequently asked questions regarding textbooks: • Bring your schedule of classes which you received from the Registrar’s Office or found on myDension. • You should expect, on average, to spend about $125 per course on textbooks and supplies. Some classes which continue for two semesters (e.g. General Chemistry, Spanish, Calculus etc.) will run higher, but your books will last for two semesters. • You should bring your Denison ID Card, especially if you have received financial aid. Your “Book Grant” and “Denison Dollars” are accessed by using your ID Card. • Used textbooks will be made available whenever possible. In fact, we sell more used textbooks than we do new textbooks to our students! • You can buy your books online from us at www.denisonbookstore.com and have them shipped home during the summer or conveniently pick them up with your other packages in the package room in Slayter Hall in August when you arrive. • We now offer some of our titles for “rent”, giving you yet another option for your purchasing needs. • If you buy the wrong book or drop a course after purchasing textbooks, you will receive a full refund during the first two weeks of class, provided you have your sales receipt and any new textbooks are still in new condition (i.e., no markings and/or undamaged). • During finals week we conduct what we call “Book Buyback.” At this time, students can sell back their used textbooks for cash to the Bookstore. • We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, cash, checks, gift cards, and of course your student ID card accounts (Denison Dollars). • You can set up a Denison Dollars account any time through our Student Account’s Office. We look forward to seeing you on campus and serving your Bookstore needs!

Counseling Staff and Services Counseling can help students improve personal, interpersonal, and academic skills. Any personal, academic, or career concern may be explored in counseling. The counseling staff comes from a variety of backgrounds and training levels, including doctoral level psychologists, masters level counselors, and those in practicum training. Practicum counselors are supervised by licensed professional staff. Counseling is offered within a brief counseling modality. Similar to Health Services, services offered through Counseling Services are delivered by appointment, Monday through Friday. Daily appointments can be scheduled with the administrative assistant by dialing 740-587-6647. Walk-in services are provided for students experiencing a crisis at any time during the business day. If a student is in a crisis after hours, the Health Services nurse will contact the on call service to help manage the crisis. The on call service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week when classes are in session.

Confidentiality The ethical guidelines of the American Psychological Association and the laws of the State of Ohio guide the services offered by the counseling staff. These guidelines require that the information shared with counselors will not be given to individuals who are not on the professional staff without the student’s knowledge and written consent, and records of students’ use of this service will not be placed in their college records, placement files, or official transcript. Counselors, however, are required by law to report situations involving imminent danger to the student or someone else, or circumstances involving the neglect or abuse of a child (under 18) or an elderly person. By law, counselors must also respond to court-ordered subpoenas of client records. The counselor will inform the student of his/her need to take such actions before they are initiated.

Our mission is to create food that is alive with flavor and nutrition, prepared from scratch using authentic ingredients. We do this in a socially responsible manner for the well-being of our guests, communities and the environment. We are committed to listening when you have suggestions, comments or concerns. Please feel free to stop by our office in Curtis West, call or e-mail when you have questions. We have put together some information we hope will be helpful to you. Your Student I.D. Card Your student I.D. is your passport to services - not the least of which is your Dining Service. You must have your I.D. with you every time you enter the dining halls. Your card will be scanned each time you come to Curtis, Huffman, or Slayter Meal Exchange. Your I.D. also accesses your Flex Dollars and Denison Dollars. If you lose your card, you will not be able to access these services in any of our locations. If you have misplaced your I.D. please visit the Services Centers for meal vouchers until your new card is made. Meal Swipes Meal swipes can be used at the following locations: Curtis Dining Hall, Curtis Express, and Huffman Dining Hall. Meal swipes are also accepted at Slayter Market Sunday - Thursday from 5:00pm - 9:30pm for Meal Exchange specials. Weekly meal swipes are added onto your student I.D. card every Friday. Any unused meals will roll over into the following week. At the end of the semester any unused meals will be forfeited. Unable to make it to a Dining Hall for a Meal? If you are unable to get to a dining hall for a specific meal due to other commitments, we have several options for you! Express is a convenient option that allows you to take meals on the go using your meal swipes, and is available Monday - Friday in Curtis from 7:45am - 3pm, and Slayter from 7am - 9:30pm. Special Dietary Requirements Dining Services has many solutions for special dietary needs. On a daily basis we offer made without gluten, vegetarian and vegan options to our students. To meet the needs of those students who may have additional restrictions or concerns, our Executive Chef is available to meet with the student and/or family one on one and design a solution to accommodate the specific needs of that student. There is also nutritional information available at http://denison.cafebonappetit.com/ Flex Dollars and Denison Dollars Flex Dollars are part of all meal plans, and can be used to purchase items at Slayter Market. Flex Dollars can also be used to purchase meals for you, your friends, or family inside the dining halls. All unused Flex Dollars are forfeited at the end of each semester. Denison Dollars are a pre-paid, declining balance account that can be used on campus in all of our Dining Service locations, as well as a variety of other locations on campus, including laundry machines. There is a $25 minimum deposit for Denison Dollars, which can be added to your account by visiting the Student Accounts office. To use your Denison Dollars simply present your student I.D. to a cashier and tell them you are using Denison Dollars. Account balances can be checked at any cash register or vending machine that accepts Denison Dollars. Any unspent funds at the end of the semester will be carried over to the next semester. Provided

there are no outstanding debts to the university, unspent funds can be refunded at the end of the academic year upon written request to Student Accounts. Guests Guests are always welcome in any of our facilities! You may pay for your guests using your Denison or Flex Dollars, cash, credit card, or meal swipes. Changing Meal Plans Students may make changes to their meal plan choice through the first two weeks of the semester. Students may change their Meal Plan option by returning a completed Meal Plan Sign-Up Form to the Residential Education Housing Coordinator. The Residential Education & Housing Office places Meal Plan Sign-Up Forms in Slayter boxes at the start of each semester. Sustainability For Denison Dining, sustainability in food service means flavorful food that’s healthy and economically viable for all, produced through practices that respect farmers, workers, and animals; nourish the community; and replenish our shared natural resources for future generations. We’re committed to sourcing a minimum 20% of our food from small, local, and owner-operated farms and businesses like One Line Coffee, Bird’s Haven Farm, Sunbeam Family Farm, OCHS fruit farm, and many more in the Granville area. All of the fryer oil on campus, after being filtered and reused, is used by a local farmer as biodiesel, and all of our 3 locations practice tray less dining and compost to further reduce the amount of waste going to the landfill. Other commitments include purchasing only certified humane cage free shell eggs, Florida tomatoes from growers who have signed the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ Fair Food Agreement, only turkey and chicken raised without antibiotics as a routine food additive, and use ground beef that is humanely raised without antibiotics, added growth hormones, or animal byproducts. These are just some of our many sustainability commitments, to learn more go to http://www.bamco. com/sustainable-food-service/ Website The Dining Services website provides daily menus for both residential halls, as well as daily menu choices in our retail operations at www.denison.edu/dining. Any unspent funds at the end of the semester will be carried over to the next semester. Provided there are no outstanding debts to the university, unspent funds can be refunded at the end of the academic year upon written request to Student Accounts.

Our office will assist you in your course selections, maintain your academic records and issue your Denison transcripts. Among the services we provide, you will likely find the following services useful: 1. Completion of verification forms and the issuance of academic transcripts. 2. Academic counseling and reviews of graduation progress for general education requirements and major/ minor requirements. 3. Guidance regarding various kinds of independent work, additional credit hour arrangements, and special grading options. Forms are available in the Registrar’s Office. 4. Approvals for transfer course work to Denison from other institutions, approved programs, and AP credits. 5. Assistance with petitions for modification of academic policies and reinstatement. Some of the policies briefly explained below will be important to you. These policies are designed to protect and assist students and families: 1. Grades and accrued academic credits can be reviewed online through your electronic account called myDenison. Always be sure that your myDenison account is active and you have access to it. 2. Students are urged to share information about their progress and grades with parents or guardians. Students can grant access to selected Self-Service records, including grades, with anyone who has an email address via the “Grant Access” tab on Self-Service. 3. All students must complete the general education requirements in order to be eligible for a Denison degree. Several but not nearly all of these requirements will be undertaken during your first year at Denison. You must ultimately complete 1) Divisional Requirements of the college: Two courses from each Fine Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences and one course from the Interdivisional area. In fulfilling those divisional requirements you must choose courses from nine different disciplines; therefore, nine different academic departments must be represented in those nine required courses. 2) Completion of the following competency areas - Quantitative Reasoning (1), Oral Communication (1), Power and Justice (1), and Writing (2). 3) The foreign language requirement. 4) W101, Writing Workshop. Every student is required to complete a W101 Writing Workshop during their Freshmen year. 4. Students are expected to register for courses during June or phone orientation. Students are required to confirm their registration by the first day of classes through an online confirmation process. In most cases anyone in the office can assist you with any questions you might have about academic matters or services that the Registrar’s Office provides. Whenever possible, please direct your questions and requests for services as follows: Sandra Cook: General Education, majors/minors and graduation requirements Trish Spence: Advanced Placement credits, International Baccalaureate credits, and transfer of credits from other institutions Lisa Ashton: Course registration and phone orientation/registration issues Aaron Kaiser: Transcripts and verifications

Transferring in Classes or Other Credits? A Denison education features small, interactive, discussion-based classes taught by professors who are both dedicated teachers and leading scholars in their respective fields. As such, Denison applies the same standards towards courses that students bring with them from outside Denison. While students and their families should consult the Registrar’s website for the official transfer credit policy, a summary and some helpful suggestions are provided here. Courses that a student brings for transfer credit should be taught by a college professor, in a classroom on an accredited college campus. Denison does not generally accept distance-learning, online or broadcast courses. Since each department is responsible for the curriculum taught in their respective disciplines, transfer courses are ultimately approved by faculty who serve as department chairs. In order to be accepted, courses that transfer to Denison must be matched with a course that we offer in both content and level of challenge. These courses may be accepted in several ways: credit hours toward graduation, satisfaction of a General Education requirement, and/or a requirement for a degree in a major; the individual departments establish the criteria for how courses are accepted in their areas. A policy for AP and IB exams is also posted on the Registrar’s website. To facilitate the transfer process, students should maintain good records including course descriptions, transcripts and syllabi for courses they bring forward. Students should bring those materials to the Registrar who will then distribute them to the appropriate department for approval. Students who are already enrolled at Denison must seek approval from the Registrar for an outside course prior to enrolling in it.

Mission Statement: Denison University Security, Safety & Risk Management is committed to professionalism, fairness and service through the partnership with the Denison Community to ensure a safe living, learning and working environment. Office of Security, Safety & Risk Management The University is committed to an aggressive and comprehensive response to infractions of the law, which includes the discovery, investigation, documentation and reporting of any unlawful activity committed on University property. The Denison University Office of Security, Safety & Risk Management has primary responsibility of the reasonable safety and security of the Denison community. It has a staff of nine full-time professionally trained officers with augmentation by part-time, non-student security monitors. Campus Security, Safety & Risk Management is located on the entry level of the Campus Parking Facility. Uniformed officers are on duty 24 hours a day to respond to and investigate complaints and provide other security and safety related services. During evening and early morning hours, non-student monitors conduct foot patrols in residential areas. They provide safeguards against possible fire and other forms of damage to property. If thefts or other security and safety incidents occur, they should be reported immediately to the Campus Security, Safety & Risk Management Office at http://www.denison.edu/offices/security/anonymous_tips.php. Officers will investigate, process reports and notify the appropriate organizations and/or individuals as to their findings, serving as the liaison with outside law enforcement agencies. While Campus Security Officers investigate all misdemeanors reported on campus, officers report felonies to and work with the Granville Police Department and the Licking County Sheriff’s Department. Emergency Phones Emergency phones are located throughout the campus and are readily identifiable by a large blue/white lighted sign on top. In addition, exterior telephones are available on various campus buildings for emergency use. The automatic dialing capability of emergency phones provides direct contact with a Denison University operator/ dispatcher. Each emergency phone has its own identifier on a separate switchboard that provides the operator/ dispatcher with the exact locations. Such calls prompt the immediate dispatch of a Security Officer. Security Escort Program The Security Escort Program is supervised by Campus Security, Safety & Risk Management and utilizes students, providing a walking escort service for student residents from the academic quad to residence halls and motorized escort from remote parking lots to residence halls. This service is also available to staff and faculty upon request. Security Escort is in operation seven nights a week from 6pm until 2am. Call ext. 6623 for this service.

(continued)

The Student’s Responsibility The cooperation and involvement of students themselves in a campus safety program is absolutely necessary. Students must assume responsibility for their own personal safety and the security of their personal belongings by taking simple, common sense precautions. Room doors should be locked at night and whenever the room is unoccupied. Students with vehicles must register them and park in their assigned area. Vehicles should be kept locked at all times. Valuables should be locked in the trunk. Students should report any unusual incidents in and around the residence halls to the Residential Education & Housing office or to Campus Security, Safety & Risk Management. Personal Security Recommendations • Lock your door – even if you are only going to the restroom or into the room next door. A surprising number of thefts from residence hall rooms are accomplished while the resident is on the same floor, but has just stepped out for “a minute.” The risk is great. It takes approximately eight seconds to walk into your open room and steal your valuables. • Lock your door when you are asleep. • Do not lend your keys or residence hall access card to anyone. They may not be as careful with them as you are and may lose or misplace them, just long enough for the wrong person to gain possession of them. • Do not leave your keys or residence hall access card lying around in public places or in your coat or jacket when you are not wearing it. • Do not prop open outside building doors that are supposed to be locked. These doors are locked for your protection, as well as that of everyone residing in the hall. • Never walk alone at night. Call for a Security Escort (ext. 6623). • Refrain from taking shortcuts; walk where there is plenty of light and traffic; use sidewalks. • Refer to residence hall bulletin boards for additional security and safety information (e.g., severe weather instructions, personal safety tips). • Utilize the Campus Comment Line at ext. 8418. • Anonymously report crimes at www.denison.edu/offices/security. On the right side of the screen click “anonymous tip” link. Emergency Alert System - DU Alert In order to contact students in the event of a campus emergency, Denison has implemented an Emergency Alert System. One component of the system allows Denison to send voice and text messages to student phones and alerts to student email addresses. All student email addresses are automatically registered with the system, but we highly recommend that students also register their individual cell phone and other email addresses they might use. Data provided will be used expressly for emergency alerts and will not be used for routine communication unless you have given approval. Denison does not and will not make any of this data available for commercial solicitation. Please sign up for the campus emergency alert system so you will be notified of campus emergencies quickly, via your cell phone. Students will receive their account information in June (either from attending a June Orientation session or in the mail). To add your cell/text number go to: https://web4prod.denison.edu (the campus information portal) and log in. You can also provide an additional email address for emergency notification. Students may access the system at any time to change, remove or add additional contact information. Weather related emergencies as well as specific campus emergencies are reported the following ways: the Campus Satellite TV Network, the Novell System and via All Campus Email. Timely warnings of crimes that pose a threat to the community are emailed to the Campus Community.

This is your Denison student account. Billing Cycle & Due Dates Electronic statements are produced on the first working day of each month. The due date is approximately three weeks later. While statements are produced each month, the two major billings are July (Fall Semester) and December (Spring Semester).

HEALTH FORMS Health Forms have been mailed separately. There are a total of 6 required pages to be filled out and returned to Denison Health Services by July 1st, 2014. If for any reason the forms will not be here by the deadline, we ask that you email Health Services at Healthserv@denison.edu to update us as to when we can expect your forms. Arriving students will not receive a room key until all forms have been submitted and are complete. Students arriving early to campus for athletics will not be able to complete their Sports Physical appointment unless their Health Inventory and Full Physical/ Immunization records are here and complete. CONFIDENTIALITY Confidentiality for our students is a priority at Denison. By law, once an individual reaches the age of 18, we are not permitted to release information to anyone about the nature of a student’s visit to our facility without the written consent of the student. This includes faculty, administration, friends and family. The only exception to this law is if an individual experiences imminent danger to themselves or someone else, or circumstance involving the neglect and/or abuse of a child (under 18) or an elderly person. If a case occurs where a life-threatening emergency exists, a parent or guardian would be notified immediately. APPOINTMENT POLICY AND HOURS OF SERVICE As with your medical provider at home, our services are delivered to students by appointment. However, emergency and urgent situations that arise are evaluated without an appointment, as needed. Appointments are made with our MDs, Nurse Practitioners, and RN staff by calling 740-587-6200. Denison Health Services is a 24/7 facility, while classes are in session. Appointments with the medical providers (MDs and NPs) are scheduled during designated clinic hours, Monday through Friday. The remainder of the hours of operation for The Whisler Center for Student Wellness is staffed by experienced, college health RNs who are able to make assessments and call the on-call providers for orders or directions in the care of the student. If the student’s medical needs are outside the scope of practice for the RN, then the student will be directed to one of the local Urgent Care facilities or the local Emergency Department for evaluation and care. CONTINUITY OF CARE Our goal is to provide quality continuity of care to our students during their time on campus. Students who have chronic disease or on-going health issues/concerns should request their providers send any pertinent communications to our office. Please advise the provider’s office that this information may be submitted with your health form, may be mailed to the attention of our Medical Director, Dr. Charles Marty, or faxed to 740587-6758.

ALLERGY INJECTIONS Denison Health Services does provide the service of providing allergy injections, as directed by your allergist. However, the following procedures must be followed in order for Denison Health Services to assume this services: • At the start of each academic year, the student must call for an “allergy ok” appointment with one of our medical providers to update our files on the student’s allergy history and any experienced reactions to their immunotherapy. There is no charge for this “allergy ok” appointment. As soon as you arrive on campus, call for that appointment so that you can keep your allergy injection schedule on time. • Each year the student must sign a contract stating that they will follow the rule of remaining in the Whisler Center for Student Wellness for 30 minutes following the allergy injection and will allow the RN to evaluate the injection site before they leave the building. • Allergist office must provide the allergy serum • The exact dosage schedule must be included • All vials of extract must be labeled with the patient’s name • All vials must have an expiration date PRESCRIPTIONS Denison Health Services has a small formulary which includes commonly utilized OTCs (Over-TheCounter) medications, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, contraceptives, topical preparations, and other medications utilized for commonly occurring acute illnesses and injuries. Students can receive their medications here and the charges for these medications are sent to the Student Account office for posting. Generally, Denison Health Services utilizes generic medications and the cost of these may be close or under what your co-pay is. If the student prefers, the medical providers can write prescriptions for needed medications which then can be filled at a local pharmacy. COSTS AND FEES Each semester your student account is charged for the Health Center Fee. This nonnegotiable fee covers the cost of running Health and Counseling Services at The Whisler Center for Student Wellness. This fee eliminates any “Office Visit” charge to see the MD, NP, RN or Behavioral Health Counselors. However, during some medical office visits, charges may be accrued for laboratory test completed, medications (prescription or OTC) medical procedures, such as suturing, medical supplies and observation, inpatient, stays at our facility. These charges are sent to Student Accounts office (740-587-6447) and are posted to the student’s individual account. If you would like to submit documentation of your student’s medical visit and charges to your personal insurance plan, your student must ask for a “Detailed Walkout Statement.” This insurance ready statement is generated at the time of the office visit and can be submitted to your insurance plan for reimbursement. Denison does not submit to student’s individual insurance companies. If, however, the student has elected to enroll into the ACA compliant (optional) insurance policy offered to students, the office of Student Accounts will submit these claim forms when the care has been delivered on campus and when directed by the student. Charges that have occurred at another facility will be submitted by the student after filling the claims form, which is available at the Student Account office. Assistance can be provided in completing these insurance forms for students who have carried the optional insurance plan.
