Join the Campus Climate Team!

Join the Campus Climate Team!

The Directors of Multi-Cultural Student Affairs and the Center for Women and Gender Action welcome applications from students to serve on the Campus Climate Team (CCT). We will select two students.

What is the CAMPUS CLIMATE TEAM?
The Campus Climate Team represents different constituencies of the campus in monitoring and reporting on matters that influence the climate experienced by members of the University community.

The Campus Climate Team (CCT) monitors campus climate issues through the review of individual and aggregated incidents that violate community standards; shares information with the Denison community about campus climate concerns by means of the Campus Climate Watch webpage; and reports at least once each semester to the President and to the Campus Affairs Council (CAC) on its findings regarding campus climate, with the expectation that its findings will be reported by CAC to both the DCGA Student Senate and to the faculty at regularly scheduled meetings.

For more information about who is on CCT and what we actually do, please click on the link below. Applications are due by Thursday, September 25 at 4:30 pm.

The Tale of Two Chopsticks

Poster 2

Two Denison students wanted to keep in touch during their summer apart. They decided to become ‘pen pals’ with a twist: they both focused on using their photography skills. At 10pm every Saturday they would upload pictures to their Facebook album. The Denison artists worked with photo prompts that had them capturing not only their personal lives but those around them. Having it open on Facebook for all their friends to see, it quickly became a popular photo project that will now be open for all Denison students to see starting 6:00 p.m Friday, September 12th at their opening reception in the Bryant Arts Center.

Denison Iron Chefs!

1504046_773130696040218_1692887272_n

Who are the Iron Chefs of Denison? You might already know if you were at the Curtis Veggie Room on Thursday, April 9th at noon. Yes, it’s us – WonTack Song ’14, Jenny Kim ‘16, and me, Rain Yan ‘16! As a team, we won first place in the Big Red Iron Chef Competition with a main dish of white rice and chicken stir-fry and a side of hand-pulled noodles!

During my free time I enjoy cooking! I believe every international student will agree with me that although we enjoy the delicious Whit’s ice-cream and macaroni and cheese in Granville, we always miss the taste of home. Before I came to Denison, I had no experience cooking. My mom would always make me delicious home cooked food everyday. However, because I decided to study aboard in the US, I had to face the truth – my mom would not be here to take care of me or make all my favorite home-cooked Chinese dishes. So, I learned how to cook!  My mom sent me her family recipes and I learned how to cook my favorite dishes from home. Now, I feel confident about my cooking skills and I always cook for my friends if they miss home-cooked food or if they want to try Chinese food.
