Campus Housing: I do not personally live on campus, but it is very accommodating and people are generally nice enough and it is very convenient to students.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are people coming from all walks of life but I do find that there is a limited ethnically and economically diverse student body. It's not terrible but it could be better and more diverse in my opinion.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about off-campus housing but I have heard that it can difficult to find cheaper apartments that is close to campus so many just stick to staying on campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants in and around campus, which a few offer small student discounts.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The facilities are very modern and in good condition. I always find myself studying and relaxing at the student center or library because there are many places around campus to just lounge around.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: I don't really dine on campus but from what I've seen at the cafeteria, there are tons of different food that is offered for many people.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Considering DePaul is located in a major city, there are definitely a variety of clubs/bars near campus.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls at DePaul are different in terms of style, looks, and interests. There really isn't a singular depiction of all of the guys/girls at campus because there is so much diversity.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There is so much to do in the city. One great thing about DePaul is that there are two main campuses: Lincoln Park, a nice neighborhood on the North Side, and the Loop, downtown in the heart of the city. There is no doubt that you will find something fun and adventurous to do!

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are transportation services for students to use when it is late and they don't feel like walking alone. The campus seems relatively safe but there have been instances of crime in which Public Safety has responded well to.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek Life and Housing but I know a couple of people who are involved with it and admire the amount of friendships they have gained.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I'm not an athlete but I do find many students here are passionate about the sports and make an effort to come to the games.

4 College Junior

Academics: I just recently declared my major to Psychology and there are a lot of opportunities/internships/jobs the university provides for my major as well as other majors. There is a Career Center where you can discuss with an adviser what you want to do specifically with their major and they guide you through the process of finding internships, volunteer opportunities, and jobs.

There is a reason why DePaul students have been voted the happiest college students—they are given a more "real-world" experience, while going to school in a prime spot of Chicago. Freshman move-in day at DePaul doesn't include driving to some campus tucked away in the forest where shopping sprees at Walmart are the highlight of the week. Students here really discover what it's like to live on their own in a big city, and they are given an independence that most college students don't get right away. However, this type of environment is definitely not for everyone, and there is a definite “culture-shock” aspect that goes beyond that of the general college-transitional period.

DePaul students represent the University well by maintaining their diverse beliefs, while keeping an open mind; living the Vincentian model by becoming socially responsible leaders; and striving for academic excellence and lifelong learning. At the end of the day, for better or for worse, most students will stand by their love of the University and its many quirks. DePaul definitely has a heart and a spirit that transcends “college” and becomes applicable to life beyond the time a student will spend within the University's walls.
