Degree: Drama and Dramatics/Theatre Arts, General
Graduation Year: 2003

DePaul has a lot of potential. The problem I believe I had is at the time I went to the school it was acting focused. If you aren't in the acting program you're a bit of a second class citizen. BUT you're respected in the field. Depending on how you utilize your degree you can find yourself in need of a job because of the depth of competition within the arts field.

Degree: Cyber/Computer Forensics and Counterterrorism
Graduation Year: 2017

DePaul University has 2 main campuses 1 in the downtown Chicago area where I attended and another in the North Side of Chicago, Lincoln Park. Although both campuses are great in distance it is well worth the trip every time because of the motivation of the teachers to teach there classes. For example I was taking a programming class(Advanced Python) maybe half way into the quarter our professor started to bring in doughnuts every class I asked her why and her response was "I think students deserve to eat the most and sometimes as programmers we forget to eat." for some this may not be a surprise but for me at the time impacted me on a very personal level. Now I am interning for Facebook and creating beautiful websites like https://Neikorivera.info

Degree: Video Game Design
Graduation Year: 2015

DePaul's game program is absolutely phenomenal. You receive hands on experience creating from the moment you begin the curriculum. The faculty is there to guide you and support you every step of the way and since the program is relatively small you get that individual attention that you deserve. My degree prepared me for a job not only in games, but in the professional world in general. I did not spend my days sitting in a classroom taking tests to regurgitate information but rather worked on a variety of teams where we would solve problems, create art, manage deadlines, and network. I recommend this program through and through.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

DePaul has been the greatest 3 and a half years of my life. The variety of classes and options available gives students the ability to be in charge of their education. The instructors in the Health Science major are passionate and helpful and rarely let a student out of their sights if they still have questions or any confusion. You gain a ton of connections within your field and so many outside resources are offered that it's hard not to succeed in what you want to do. The one single pitfall is the financial aid department. The problem is that the department is really difficult to get a hold of and to communicate with once you do get someone to finally email you back. I have described problems multiple times to different people in the department and they always just direct me somewhere else, where I'm then forced to explain everything all over again and am usually just redirected again or am given options that I have told them I do not want to pursue (they always recommend just taking out more loans, because that's a great plan).

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019

DePaul is fantastic with working with students to make sure that they reach their full potential. The STARS program at DePaul is great with ethnic students because it really put the focus on the student and really makes them work to their full potential . Not only that but the counselors are also great because they really push the students to take the classes that will benefit them throughout college.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

The professors are great, the expectations are clearly communicated, the back office support always has a positive attitude, and the colleagues in the classroom are among the best students in a large global city. I enrolled in an MBA with a concentration in accounting and really wished I had done more in accounting. The college will allow you to add concentration later to your MBA after you graduate. So accommodating. This is one college that is worth every penny.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended DePaul University all four years of my college career and enjoyed it. I am from out of state and moving to Chicago was a big step but I learned to live in a city. The majority of my friends went to state schools and will never get the same experience I got in the city, and for that I am forever grateful.

Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2001

DePaul was my dream school. The mission and values set forth by St. Vincent DePaul truly reflects who I am as a citizen and a humanitarian. My experience at DePaul exceed my expectations. The staff is very encouraging and supportive of your educational endeavors. There are many opportunities available at DePaul to aid you in succeeding and accomplishing your goals. I have since completed my Master's degree in Information systems and I studied abroad in Brazil. Currently, I'm working on my third degree from DePaul, the Masters of Art in Educating Adults. In addition, I am also an adjunct faculty member.

Degree: Music Teacher Education
Graduation Year: 2005

This was a good college, had a great music school. However, I had much better scholarships to other schools that had "good" music programs. I wish I would have done that instead to avoid the student debt I have.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2011

I had a nice balance of happy and motivated professors and students. Maybe should've focused more on a specific trade and major. One of the few central Chicago Universities
