4 College Junior

Scholarships: The price of attending this school is very high but I do think it is worth it because the skills and values that I learn will be applied throughout my entire professional career.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of my professors are very knowledgeable in their profession and even participate in current research and are active in the field. I enjoy the stimulating conversations that we have with them and the learning environment they create for all of us.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had students who graduated with the degree I am pursuing return to the school for a speech. The ones who have come back explain to us the kind of work they do which can vary and how much they enjoy working in the field.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I took a class about Greek art but aside from that I do not think there are many benefits nor disadvantages to Greeks.

5 College Junior

Majors: Right now I am currently going to go for my masters degree in Public Health and it was very competitive to get in and it will be very challenging to graduate from. I like the competitiveness and enjoy the amount of attention and opportunities that will be available for me.

5 College Junior

Majors: It is very nice to have class with many of the same people every quarter. You begin to form strong relationships and the quality of the classes increases.

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is amazing. People in and around the campus are very nice and generous.

5 College Junior

Diversity: There is no other place where I have been surrounded by people of all kinds of cultures, beliefs, sexual orientations, ethnic backgrounds, economic status, etc. DePaul university does a fantastic job of getting people from all types of origins and beliefs.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I like the environment but I do not know if this is the kind of location that I see myself living in for long periods of time. It would depend on how much I make and what my other options are. Nonetheless, it is a great community.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The quality of the facilities are of high quality and easily accessed by students. They are inviting and intramural sports make socializing easier.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The quality of living off campus around DePaul is very good. It is safe and elegant and convenient. However, the only downfall is the price that accompanies the location.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The relationships of people at my university are very strong and important. They have led me to good times and even job opportunities.

5 College Junior

Academics: The registration process at DePaul is fairly easy and it you get stuck on something there is always someone there to guide you. The professors are excellent and are also always there to guide you through anything.

4 College Junior

Academics: The department for International Studies is small but DePaul has excellent professors that prepare their student for the real world. There are endless opportunities for internships and jobs after student graduate.

5 College Junior

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining is great. Chicago is a very diverse city so you will find almost anything international around.

Campus Strictness: They take the life and education of every student very serious therefore they are very strict with enforcing policies. Students' behavior and attendance will reflect the student's academic performance so they encourage everyone to be responsible adults.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus can take some time to explore options. There are great places near the university and public transportation but smaller in size. However, if the student doesn't mind a longer commute there are great places with larger spaces that can accommodate them.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The student population is focused on getting their education and whatever is required of them so you will see everyone dressed in comfortable attire. For the most part everyone is friendly and social.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The DePaul Library at the Lincoln Park campus is beautiful and offers excellent help from the librarians. They are there to help with anything you need. you have access to their help anywhere you are so you can chat/email them any questions you have from anywhere. Best place to do research, homework, study etc.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is literally something for everyone and anyone can be involved with any organization where they be of reach, religion, sexual orientation, or interest.

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.
