I hope you'll view this video- 90 seconds. A wonderful Denison parent,
alumnus, friend, volunteer created this and I love the message. I met
Marty Jones when we served together on Alumni Council- lucky me. We didn't
attend Denison at the same time, but that is party of the Denison magic and
network- it extends far beyond one's four years on campus. It is exponential-
it truly goes to infinity and beyond. Each year I make new Denison
friends and each year I reconnect and pick up where I left off with beloved
college roommates, sisters, pals.
I am in a special place to see firsthand the wonderful impact Denison has
-young people's lives
The students are in an important formative time in their lives and Denison
indeed provides the knowledge and skills for success. It does this through
relationships- friendships, mentorships, formal and informal. And as
mentioned above it continues to do so by the network it provides, the
connections we have to the place we love so well!
I invite you all to watch: https://host.denison.edu/hello-one-day/
And yes consider a gift. The Annual Fund dollars matter and make a
difference. We can all give something. As my Dad said- do you
like the magazine, being invited to events? (Yes you all are invited to campus
for sporting events free of charge, concerts, plays, art exhibits, and the
dining hall (yes some fees but think about what isn't covered in that small
fee). If you like the invite, access, mail, email...then support it with
a gift to the Annual Fund! (Do you think when he told me this as a child
over and over he had any idea he was creating a fundraiser?)
So consider a gift to the Annual Fund at Denison.
-Denison parents, grandparents- thank you for helping me
do my specific job!!
-Denison Alumni- thank you for helping us with our
participation rate- every gift matters, it affects our national rankings-
alumni participation is measured! Now is the time, today is here- lets
rally around our fair college on the hill!
-Community friends- your gifts are appreciated and valued too!
Think about what Denison does for our community- the jobs, culture, industry,
tourism it brings to our beautiful licking county. Help us today with a gift to
the Annual Fund. Now more than ever Denison is engaged in our
community-supporting my beloved Works: Ohio Center for History, The
Granville Inn, downtown Newark, Columbus. I can go on and on but will
stop. Thanks for recognizing and considering becoming a friend of
where you can give and learn more!
Thank you- regular readers you know how important Denison is in my life on Newark-Granville Road, how
much I value it. I am who I am because of four years and beyond at Denison. I'm
grateful and want to share the opportunity to engage. Thank you.
