Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our priority at Denison has been preserving the safety of our community while providing students with as normal a college experience as possible. With a strong interest in continuing to host events this fall, the university has introduced several COVID mitigation strategies.

Vaccines continue to be our best defense against COVID-19, and in preventing serious illness and hospitalizations. For this reason, we are requiring all visitors to campus who are eligible for vaccination against COVID-19 (aged 12 or older) to be fully vaccinated. We ask those alumni, family members, and friends who are eligible but remain unvaccinated, to please not visit campus at this time. Children under age 12 are exempt from this requirement.

As an additional measure, we will require all guests and members of the Denison community, including children aged two or older, to wear masks indoors at all times unless actively eating or drinking. Masks will not be required outdoors.

All of us at Denison thank you for your support as we work to keep our community safe.

Big Red Weekend is a unique opportunity for members of the extended Denison family to visit campus each fall. Join us on The Hill for a conversation with President Weinberg, numerous varsity and club sports contests, various art performances, and much, much more!
