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.

The Oligo Research Fund: Spencer Greene, a Denison University senior, has been diagnosed with oligodendroglioma (Oligo), a rare type of brain tumor. While Oligos represent less than 5% of brain tumors, it is actually one of the more common ones since there are over 100 different types of brain tumors. There are no known cures and no effective treatment options, other than surgery. Oligos tend to grow slowly and as a result people with these tumors have an average life expectancy of 10 years, though there is fairly broad range. In July of 2011, the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) launched the Oligo Research Fund. Oligo Nation and NBTS work closely to build support for Oligo research and all fundraising efforts of Oligo Nation have been directed into this fund. Additional donations may be sent to:The Oligo Research Fund, c/o Denison University, P.O. Box 716, Granville, OH 43023
