Denison in the Blogosphere (11/29/10)
We’re always hunting down interesting Denison-related content on the interwebs, and, periodically, we’ll share the best of this content with you on TheDEN. In today’s fix of Denisonia, we’ve got one alum switching gears mid-career and another penning a heartfelt tribute to his late father. We’ve also got Granville celebrated yet again for being one of the premier college towns.
Waffles on the Boardwalk
Liz Averbeck ’04 enjoyed a successful career in higher-education publishing, but recently she packed up her New York City life and moved west to pursue her true passion: the outdoors. She’s running, cycling, hiking, and blogging it all (not at the same time, thankfully). Check out the mysteriously titled Waffles on the Boardwalk for more.
Matt Smith ’77 offers up a loving tribute to his late father Jim Smith ’49. Accompanied by college roommate Bill Powell, Smith recently made a pilgrimage to Denison to spread his father’s ashes on the grounds of his fraternity house, Phi Delta Theta.

If you haven’t been here for a while, or if you’re planning your first visit, here’s an overview of hot spots and fun things to do, from the editors of Cincinnati Magazine.
