WELCOME, Class of 2018! I am Webster Burton, and I hail from Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan. I graduated from Cranbrook Kingswood in Bloomfield Hills, MI where I was captain of the boy’s swim and dive team and captain of the boy’s State Championship lacrosse team. I also was a boarding student at Cranbrook, which made the transition to Denison fairly easy.
For me, branching out and making friends was not a problem, but I did struggle with getting involved in the Denison community. So… Come club fair; I joined the investment club and the Christian community. It helped me become involved and stay busy. At Denison, I started the competitive clay target team and competed in the 2014 national championship in San Antonio, TX.
Although I did not pledge a fraternity this past year, I explored the rush process and decided to wait until my sophomore year. I am hoping to pledge Kappa Sigma this coming semester.
I had a terrific freshman year at Denison. I did well academically as well as socially. I managed my time and met a lot of terrific people. I hope this provides you all with some background on me and the opportunities available at Denison.
