Overall Experience: From the moment I first went to visit DePaul University I fell in love with it.

Overall Experience: DePaul University is a service-oriented school. This vision trickles from the top-down and spreads from one person to the next, staff to student, and student to community.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being in a mostly liberal arts university seemed like a downer at first for a science major. However, I have come to realize that having small class sizes for science classes is nice. I have more professor interaction time and I was able to start researching as an undergraduate in chemistry.

Overall Experience: I enjoy it very much. I am proud to be a Blue Demon! However, it would have been nice if Metra offered student discounts to commuter students especially when it would cost about $250 a month to use the train back and forth.

Overall Experience: Everyone in DePaul University seem to be especially nice and attentive, to each other and everyone else. Starting from the faculty and stuff and finishing with the students themselves, people seem to always be willing to help and accommodate, no matter if you are a stranger to them or not. Part of it is the values behind being a true vincentian. And the bonus part is, you don't even have to be religious to blend in! Believing in God or not, you will be becoming a better person because it's hard not to when you are surrounded by sincere kindness.

Overall Experience: Depaul is by and large a great school to attend. Generally, the staff is amazing, people are friendly, and the campus is very nice. However, the cost is quite large, but if you have a large amount of scholarships this shouldn't be a problem.

Overall Experience: Though there are some trade-offs to going to a city school, I think it outweighs the benefits of going through college with the typical campus feel. The city life and school life combined gives you a taste of freedom and professionalism; it is so easy to make great connections here for your career, and also to go off campus often to enjoy cool activities.

Overall Experience: I have really got into the spirit of being a blue demon. DePaul is multicultural and connected to everything which is great if you need an internship or job. They're helpful and are the best example of college life is and their staff are amazing.

Overall Experience: I love my school. Considering the amount I pay to go there every year, the student organizations and events and materials they give is decent. Honestly no one likes paying thousands of dollars but i feel like we could have gotten much much less when compared to other schools especially in regards to what students receive from the school (printing, handouts, school sponsored events, etc).

Overall Experience: DePaul's Master's of Science in Economic Policy Analysis is a small program that provides great opportunities through small class sizes and accomplished professors all combined with the service-oriented values of a Catholic university, but it's expensive and the non-professor staff are less than helpful much of the time with questions related to registration, financial aid, billing, etc.

Overall Experience: Very fun experience, what makes my school unique is that it is located in the cit of Chicago. The city is a big part of the school experience especially if you're for somewhere else. There's often lots to do around campus as well and lots of good food.

Overall Experience: Picking DePaul was the best decision I have ever made! I've loved everything about my experience and I wouldn't change anything about it except the cost of attendance. Otherwise, all of the opportunities I've had and doors that have opened have changed my life. It's so awesome being at a school that genuinely cares about it's students and because of that I feel like I am my true self when I am at DePaul. There are SO many ways to get involved and I want to do it all. I have a few leadership positions on campus, I want to start an on-campus organization, and much more!

Overall Experience: Right now I attend DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. I like how there are many things to do outside the campus. The teachers are phenomenal and I like how there is a community type of feel, so making friends is not so hard.

Overall Experience: Calvin college has a lot of work to do concerning cultural diversity. As a minority student, I did not feel very welcome.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
