3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They don't have enough for incoming students. Also rooms are small.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The parties are not great but the people I know in Greek life love it.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We don't have a football team but its okay we have basketball.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is a good school, but not really worth the cost.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Located in Chicago, DePaul is the perfect school if you're looking to work part-time or get an internship. Chicago's diversity and size foster so many opportunities in nearly every field.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoyed the different courses I had a chance to take this year. Of course there were a few classes that I wasn't too excited for, but those were also classes that were mandatory. Even though they might not have been my favorite classes, they were still a great learning experience, that I was happy to learn more about. The professors are people who are extremely smart when it comes to their field, and could tell you anything you would ever need to know.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From my experience this year alone, I had a great opportunity to have an internship my freshman year. I think that from this opportunity alone, I believe that the next three years can be as great as my freshman year was.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I personally feel safe when I am on the DePaul Lincoln Park Campus, I really enjoy the fact that there are the blue safety lights, and multiple cameras on every single block of the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I personally did not enjoy my time in the dorms. I was at first wait-listed for housing, which in my opinion should never be a thing. You shouldn't accept more students than you have space for. My dorm space was okay, I was in a converted-triple, which is the same size of room as a typical two-person room. I enjoyed having a bathroom shared between only 4 others, it made getting ready fairly easy. As for the social atmosphere, my dormitory was quite anti-social. After the first week no-one really tried to build friends in the dorms, and didn't try to socialize with anyone they didn't know.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life throws a ton of different events that even non-Greek students can participate in.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: My university does not have a football team so there they are already losing interest when it comes to football. But I will say that DePaul has a highly ranked basketball team. The team is very good, but because of not having a basketball court arena on campus, it makes the student involvement very hard when it comes to the games, that including fan support.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have spent a year at this university, and it has been the best year thus far. I have enjoyed every minute of it so far. My senior year of high school I thought for quite some time that I wasn't even going to attend college, but now being at DePaul, and getting so much from it already, I can't imagine myself anywhere else. DePaul has allowed me different experiences, as well as to understand different cultures from all of my friends that have such diverse backgrounds. DePaul is a place that I would continue to stay at for as long as I could, it's a school that allows you to enjoy the different opportunities that one is given every single day.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Unfortunately, sexual assaults happen on all college campuses, but DePaul works to hard to help those who are victims of an assault by providing counseling and any other assistance that may be needed.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel that my DePaul degree will open many doors for me to enter into the business world and for other opportunities that may arise.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I am not in a fraternity nor am I interested in joining one.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The sporting events here at DePaul are pretty good, I wouldn't say that they are great, but good. I do not much time to attend the sporting events, but the facilities are very nice looking and up to date.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall, I really like the quality of education here at DePaul University. It is the largest catholic university in the nation and this school has some great rankings in regards to the different schools and programs it has to offer. I like the diverse group of students and faculty along with the wide array of programs that are offered to tailor to many different interests. If I were to seek another degree, whether another Master's degree or a PhD, I would return to DePaul University.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The small class settings are really helpful and I get more out of class time. Most of my professors are excellent and truely care about their students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I know many people who have been successful in finding internships and DePaul is a great school so I think employers like seeing that.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public Safety offers free rides on campus which is helpful at night when I don't want to walk alone.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Seton was a great dorm with a lot of space. My floor was social so it was great for making friends.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am planning on joining this fall. There is no greek housing.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have a basketball team but not many people go to the games.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: DePaul is great because it is different from a typical college. An urban university opens a lot of doors for opportunities.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a very large variety of classes that can be taken, offered on multiple campuses (Lincoln Park and the Loop). I personally am unable to experience a lot of them because my major is very demanding and does not allow for a lot of classes outside of my major or required gen-eds.

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.
