Sponsored by the Office of Multi-Cultural Student Affairs (MCSA), Paving the Way (PTW) Pre-Orientation program encourages all entering students to participate in this program, although its primary focus is to assist traditionally under-represented student populations in transitioning to the academic, cultural, and social climate at Denison University.
This program traditionally begins three days before August Orientation and extends throughout the academic year. Sessions address academic success, ethnic and cultural identities, personal development and an exploration of resources to build stronger relationships with Denison University.
International Student Services offers a four day pre-orientation program for students who are enrolling from countries outside of the U.S. The goal of the program is to facilitate the transition to the U.S. in general and more specifically to the academic, social and cultural landscape of Denison University. The program includes sessions on specific resources at Denison, healthcare and insurance in the U.S., immigration regulations, co-curricular engagement, campus employment and the myriad of opportunities available on campus and in our surrounding communities.

A Message from the Office of Residential Education & Housing:
As you know, Thanksgiving break is quickly approaching. We want to take a moment to give everyone a few brief reminders for the break: Crawford, Shepardson, Curtis East, Curtis West, Smith and Chamberlin are designated as break halls and will remain open during the Thanksgiving Break
For most international students, Big Red Weekend incites rather nostalgic and homesick feelings, as our parents in general are unable to come to Denison to visit us. However, thanks to the Big International Potluck Dinner, hosted by International Student Services (ISS), my quiet weekend was spiced up quite a bit. The idea was very simple: students signed up to cook and bring one dish of their choice to Curtis West Lounge on Saturday of Big Red Weekend. Everyone present would then share the dishes, simulating the concept of a family sharing food.
Some Vietnamese friends and I decided to try our cooking skills with the Vietnamese spring rolls (fun fact: it’s like the dish that every Vietnamese mother will teach their children to cook before they go abroad). We planned to meet up and cook on Saturday morning, so the dish would be available by the time of the potluck. We wanted to make the spring rolls a bit earlier so that if something went wrong, we had enough fixing time. We thought we were being overly cautious, but as it turned out, quite a few people shared the same idea. For example, the evening before the potluck, I already saw Moe Kyaw Thu, a freshman from Myanmar, practicing his Burmese chicken dish. I had nothing but respect for his careful preparation.
