4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek Life. Only drawback is that there are some pretty cool sororities and they throw exclusive parties sometime. There are a few (2 or 3) I would want to join if I had the $. Fun and inclusive! Would join if I could.

Athletics: DePaul doesn't have the state-school esque student body that will get drunk for game days or make them a "classic" part of the DePaul experience, but a section of the student body does like to go to them. Students that are involved in athletics are collegiate athletes. Intramural sports are much more accessible.

The Ray (our gym) is amazing, nicest gym I've ever been in. State of the art equipment, pool, tuition-included yoga/zumba/cardio/spin etc. classes, machines, Beyonce dance class, AMAZING SMOOTHIES in the Ray!!!

Drug Safety: DePaul is pretty strict on drugs. They are leaner with alcohol. In my view, that is a good thing as I do not partake in drugs.

Greek Life: The Greek life at DePaul is pretty amazing because we have a wide variety of sororities and fraternities that anyone can get into. Being in a sorority or fraternity helps students make lifelong friendships with other DePaul students and get involved in more events around campus.

Athletics: We have a lot of school spirit at DePaul where many students wear clothing that best represents our university. The athletics at DePaul is very different than any other university because we have almost every sport.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I honestly have no clue, sports do not play a big role in life here although I am aware that they exist. This may be due to the fact that I myself have no interest in sports and therefore pay them no attention.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has a very liberal atmosphere but not in the sense of politics. By liberal I mean liberal thinking, having students who are interested in discussing their relationships to each other and to our society. Social thinking is very strong here, and it's something that I appreciate.

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.
