Take a moment and imagine your future self;  the version of you who has graduated from Denison and is beginning the next phase of your life.  How does it feel to think about this? Do you feel Excited?  Unsure? Stuck? Overwhelmed?  All of the above?  You are NOT alone. The Denison Journey Program is designed to help you think about your future with excitement, possibility, and promise and support you in breaking down the steps to get there into small, manageable pieces. The experience is split into four workshops that build upon one another to help you build clarity around what you might want to do with your career and give you the tools and resources you need should you decide to explore a different path in the future. It is highly recommended that all students complete the Journey Program by the end of your Sophomore year. We have several options for you to complete the Journey Program this Spring Semester. Please Register soon as spaces are limited!
