School location unfruitful, academics rewarding.

DePauw is unique because it is a very small school with very focused and determined students. Professors are always there to help and the small class sizes make it easy to know your professors on a personal level. DePauw is, for many people, a home away from home, and it is easy to see why after visiting. I am happy to be able to attend DePauw and would choose it all over again if I were given a do-over.
