Career Quote of the Week

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

Frequently Asked Question of the Week

Question: I am only an first-year student, should I start thinking about my career or is it to early?

Answer: It is never to early to begin to consider your career options. At Denison, we have a four-year plan for every student. This plan helps them succeed post-graduation while also being prepared for internships and externships. Come visit us in CE&D to learn more about the plan and how it can cater to your career goals and aspirations.
