Yesterday was a very Denison day for me. It’s really a testament to my undergrad alma mater that I’m still so connected to it 3.5 years later. If you know anyone deciding about colleges to apply to, I could easily bend their ear for an hour singing Denison’s praises. Including that it rightfully made the top of Buzzfeed’s list of “college campus pics that will make you never want fall to end.”
First I got an email about planning After Work with Denison…Everywhere! I previously volunteered to host the event since there are other Denisonians in Missoula but no gathering in our area. I had a fun time schmoozing with alumni at the previous Madison events, so I didn’t want to miss out on that opportunity this year. Now I have to find a good place to reserve a small room for us. I’m thinking maybe Jaker’s? If you have any other ideas, let me know.
Then I conducted a Denison Alumni Recruitment Team interview. It’s a great way for Denison and its prospective students to get to know one another when an on-campus interview is unfeasible. I’ve done a few of these now, and it’s always a pleasure to meet with bright, engaged, passionate young people. It also just feels cool to be a part of shaping the next Denison class.
Of course I did it all while wearing my Denison sweatshirt. Like I said, it was a very Denison day.
