If you're a sports fan, you know sports writer and radio personality Dan Patrick. And if you're a Dan Patrick fan and a Denison fan, you may have been pretty excited to see a familiar Denison symbol during a recent Dan Patrick Show simulcast: a Denison swim cap. It first appeared in June and has been part of the studio décor for a few weeks now. How did it get there? Turns out, Nancy Duncan Porter, a development officer for the college, began trading emails with the Dan Patrick team back in March in hopes of getting a group of organizational studies students a tour of the studio and a chat with some professionals in the broadcasting and entertainment world. Unfortunately, the show wasn't equipped to host a tour at the time, but when a Duncan Porter sent them the cap, the Dan Patrick team offered up the hat trick as a very cool consolation prize.

Here's some pretty proof that the new natatorium project is coming right along—water! Even in advance of having four walls and a roof, they recently conducted testing for the water-tightness of the pool. (It passed.) We'll have another big milestone later this month when the steel structure of the building starts to go up around it. And the project is right on schedule to open in time for the fall 2012 semester.

Who needs a roof?
