Denison University on this year's ranking list:
This private, residential liberal arts university, sprawls across nearly 1,500 acres in Granville, OH, and boasts a 550 acre biological reserve. Denison was named after a farmer who pledged money toward the college's endowment. Perhaps that's why Denison isn't only wired: it's green. The Information Technology Services department has taken a number of steps to reduce their carbon footprint. All campus printers default to printing double sides, and they have taken the initiative to recycle computer components, printer cartridges, and toner.
Denison has also made a push to reduce the use of paper, and to that end has branded its own
web-based suite of applications called Denison Apps, powered by Google. Students use Denison Apps for emailing, maintaining a calendar, and sharing all major documents throughout the university.
Denison utilizes a customizable service called 'myDENISON' to keep students and faculty on the same page. Through the use of myDENISON ‘channels' the administration, clubs, athletics, etc., can broadcast announcements to the entire student body or within their own groups within this closed network.
Despite these innovations, Denison is the only school on this list that doesn't let you register for your classes online. You can't have everything.
