Big Red Weekend

Dear Alumni, Families, Faculty, Staff, and Friends,

Denison’s next Big Red Weekend is tentatively scheduled to take place in Granville on October 2-4, 2020. Because of continuing health and safety considerations related to the current coronavirus pandemic, however, plans for this year’s Big Red Weekend remain provisional.

Large gatherings in Ohio continue to be prohibited, and the Centers for Disease Control still recommends that travel in the U.S. be limited to only that which is essential.

Unfortunately, we must await further guidance from local, state, and federal authorities before we can finalize any decisions regarding Big Red Weekend 2020. We will continue to post updated information here as it becomes available.

Thanks for your understanding and patience,

Your friends in Alumni & Family Engagement

Big Red Weekend is a unique opportunity for all members of the extended Denison family to visit campus each fall. Join us on “the Hill” for what may be the most beautiful time of year in Granville.

We typically welcome more than 1,000 alumni, parents, and other family members to campus for this traditional celebration of all things Denison!

Among the many highlights each year are a conversation with President Weinberg about Denison’s recent successes and what’s new and exciting at the college; numerous varsity and club sport contests; a cappella, jazz, gospel, and musical theatre performances; programs about new and creative curricular, co-curricular, and career initiatives at Denison; and much, much more!
