Honestly, the dating scene at DePaul isn’t the greatest. There are basically three extremes here—students who have dated the same person since high school, students who open their bedroom up to a different person every weekend, and students who appear oblivious to the fact that intimate human relationships exist—none of which seem particularly desirable for a 20-something guy or girl. While there are some exceptions to these rules, they are few and far between.
However, the diversity of the University and the prevalent social and nightlife scenes make it very easy to meet a lot of new people, which is a definite benefit to DePaul. One of the downsides is that the campus will become very small, somewhat quickly, and students will find themselves encountering the same people over and over—whether they want to or not. The way nightlife factors into the dating scene is somewhat split. The bars provide a relaxed and fun atmosphere to meet people, which is great, but the probability that a student is going to have a lasting sober connection with someone they met while more than slightly smashed isn’t terribly high.
