A note regarding COVID-19

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, and for this reason, we are requiring all visitors to campus to be fully vaccinated. We ask those alumni, family members, and friends who are unvaccinated to please not visit campus at this time. As an additional measure, we will require all guests and members of the Denison community to wear masks indoors at all times unless 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 what many believe to 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 sports contests, various arts performances, and much, much more!
