Writing Our Story


Classmates would still like to know what you’ve been up to. For those who were not able to make the original deadline, Denison will publish a supplemental addendum to the Celebration Book.

Online submissions can be made here.

For further details, contact Cole Brown by email here.

Chapel Walk in 1968One of Denison’s long-standing traditions is the publishing of a glossy, two-hundred page, 50th Reunion Celebration Book. It includes a listing of all class members, updates on as many classmates as possible – plus classic pictures, fun facts and great memories. We’re sure you’ll be delighted with the Celebration Book, we just need your help.

We’re asking everyone in the Class of 1968 to submit a biographical section about life during, but mainly, after Denison. We’re also requesting that everyone include a current “head shot” as well as a couple of your favorite candid shots – to help bring your biography to life.

Enclosed you will find a biographical guideline with four areas that we hope will stir your memories and inspire reflection — plus some samples from fellow classmates. Get out your laptop or iPad (or even a sharp #2 pencil). Share your stories with your classmates. Write brief or lengthy, frank or prosaic, serious or humorous accounting of your life at Denison and beyond. Write a little or a lot – but do write. And don’t forget your pictures. You’ll enjoy the results in the Celebration Book!

The Academic Quad in 1968Each of you will receive your book next spring, before our Class of 1968 50th Reunion in Granville on May 30-June 2, 2018.

From conversations at previous 50th Reunions:
“I wish I’d known how special our Celebration Book would be. Even though I didn’t know some classmates, I enjoyed reading their reflections and insights, their career choices and life decisions. After all, it has been 50 years since our Denison experience! What interesting people we have become.”

Please respond so that our Celebration Book is full of stories about our memories from Denison and lives since Denison. If not, just your name and Adytum or Baby Book photo will stand in for you! Your “Today” head-shot photo will be printed beside your “Denison Days” picture and candid shots will be included with your biography.
