Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Get involved in a variety of different things in high school. You don't have to overdo it-two or three activities is a good goal.
  • Keep your grades up and spend some time focusing on community service if it's not already a requirement at your school.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Chicago is super expensive.
  • College goes by quickly. Don't waste a second of your time because you're going to want it back.
  • Don't be afraid of the size of the city-some students are terrified before they get here, but it gets so tiny, so quickly.
  • Everyone is generally open and accepting. Oftentimes, incoming freshmen may feel like they have to go to college to reinvent themselves, but at DePaul, anything and everyone goes, so you can be yourself.
  • If someone tries to sign you up to give a nonprofit donation, just tell them you already signed up. If you don't, you could be stuck talking to them for 20 minutes while they try to persuade you.
  • If you're not from a very large city, expect a bit of culture shock-there are lots of different people from different walks of life here!
  • Never buy books from the bookstore. Unless you have a ridiculous amount of disposable income, it is almost always guaranteed that you will find it 40 to 50 percent cheaper online. When you sell back your books, look for the local vans from bookstores around the city or flock to where you can get a good price.
  • Once you get involved with something, you'll be expected to get involved with everything. DePaul is extremely communal, so once you're part of one of the communities-ethnic, political, service-oriented, faith-based-you'll be expected (and generally find you want) to be a part of them all.
  • So much goes on in the life of a DePaul student outside of classes. Most kids have jobs and booming social or political lives. You may get out of class at noon, but your day is just starting.
  • Talk to the Street Wise guys outside Dominick's. Avoid the Greenpeace guys outside Dominick's.
  • Try to learn about the city of Chicago before coming here. You'll stumble across really cool places on your own, but you'll want to make sure you don't miss out on some neat things you may have read about.
  • What to major in before coming to DePaul. The University presents so many options that it's impossible to make that decision here.
  • You will get lost a lot if you don't have a great sense of direction.
