In sync with the intricate and unpredictable world he lives in, Pat Denbow has forged a significant understanding of himself and his role in the world.
“It’s a complex political world we live in. With so much division and tension going on around us, we need to have an understanding of the world so that we can affect positive change.”
A political science major, from Louisville, Ky., Pat’s worldly curiosities have thrived at Wittenberg. A four-year varsity basketball player, Academic All-America nominee, member of Phi Kappa Psi, president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Council, Torch columnist and member to several academic honorary societies, Pat has a commitment to taking advantage of all the opportunities that Wittenberg can offer a student in four short years.
“You need to find your niche at Wittenberg. For me, it was better to be busy than bored. Surrounding yourself in different areas makes the total experience worth it.”
For Pat it was experiences as thrilling as competing for the NCAA National Championship to daily intellectual debate with fellow students in the classroom that added up to a certainty that every student at Wittenberg is carrying on a tradition – the Wittenberg tradition.
“It’s about leaving part of yourself here for the next person. Wittenberg’s tradition is filled with generations of personalities and experiences. To be a part of that is to leave your own bit of tradition and legacy for those soon to follow.”
