4 College Senior

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.

5 College Sophomore

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.

Athletics: The athletes get treated better then the rest of the school and I never see much of school spirit.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: When I came to college I wanted to join Greek Life, but everyone hates the Greeks at my school, so I didn't.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I lived at 1237 and had the worst experience of my live. It really degrades the name of DePaul. DePaul is too good to be associated with 1237.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties that I have been to were horrible. I was treated poorly as a women. The guys were rude, and it was all pointless. DePaul really isn't a party school. Its a bar school. You will find more students at bars then at parties drinking.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Its okay, there really isn't much variety and I barely get any student discounts.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I really have no comment about this.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Its okay for college food, I think having a buffet and doing the swiping system would be much better.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My family has no money, and I didn't receive any financial aid from the school. I'm in constant anxiety about the debt I will have from having not having financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The DePaul dorms are better then some that I have seen at other colleges, but they are still not the best. For the cost students pay to go to DePaul and live here, I think the dorms could be nicer, bigger, and have better atmospheres.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Since it is in Lincoln park it is very expensive, but the apartments are very nice and the neighborhood is safe. They are close to the campus and to the train on Shefield and fullerton

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: We went to a friends apartment party. It was big and lots of fun. The neighbors did not complain because of the noise and post of the people were from depaul.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of different restaurants with student discount. I eat food from almost all over the world and never get bored

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It is only strict when alcohol and drugs are involved, other than that, we can do what we want.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are a lot of restaurants around campus, which brings out the variety in food i am able to eat. Since it is in the middle of the city, i never get bored

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I went to the financial aid office because i have never done the fafsa before and they walked me through it step by step and the amount of grants and scholarships i received was enough to lower my tuition to a reasonable amount.

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.
