"I think DePauw University is a great institution. I think it is a place where a student can thrive and discover who they are and what their passions are. It is a liberal arts institution that teaches you how to think critically and challenge yourself and others. DePauw is also a place where friendships for life are made. It is a place that is welcoming to all student and open to students that are willing to step out of their comfort zone but still remain true to their beliefs. DePauw is challenging but it know for a motto "work hard and play hard" in other words dedicate the necessary time to success academically but also enjoy your time there and have fun make the most of your time because it is over in a flash."

"DePauw University is an outstanding institution. Everyone from faculty and staff to current students to alumni are willing to do everything in their power to make sure each person's education there is a success. Small class sizes allow each student to get the attention they need and professors are always willing to make time to meet with students. Greek life is huge and promotes abundant networking opportunities as well as a socially and intellectually balanced education. Everyone is encouraged to study abroad (either for a semester or winter term) to gain a cross-cultural education that creates well-rounded citizens. Because DePauw is a liberal arts school, students are required to take classes outside of their desired area of study. This requirement introduced me to computer science, a discipline I never would have ventured towards had I not needed to branch out and try something new. I spent two years after graduation as a software engineer and will be starting law school this fall. DePauw played a huge role in getting me where I am today."

"DePauw is a small, but vibrant college community of high achieving, well-rounded students. Because of its size, students get close attention from faculty and plenty of opportunities to get involved on campus -- even holding leadership roles as underclassmen. Not all students will like the rural location or heavy emphasis on greek organizations, but the academic experience is top notch."

"DePauw is an amazing place for personal growth, education, and socialization. You will make your best friends for life, experience the benefits of a close knit community with ample social opportunities like greek life, clubs, and organizations, and you will be exposed to challenging but encouraging academic ideas both inside and out of the classrooom. The campus has a vibrant social scene, ample cultural events like concerts and prestigious guest speakers, and numerous fun activities such as historic sporting rivalries, campus traditions, and a few fun surprises you'll have to find out about for yourself!"

"DePauw is a really unique school with a student-centered mission. The campus is gorgeous and the facilities are modern and well-maintained, but the real appeal is the dedicated faculty and staff who are there because they want to teach students. I've gotten a grad degree at a larger institution and it's helped me realize how special it was to have professors who knew my name and took the time to give me substantive feedback on my assignments. I still keep in touch with a few of them and it's made a lasting difference in my life. The sticker price and the location can be turnoffs at first glance, but many of us were on generous scholarship and financial aid packages and the school community is very welcoming."

"Tell us about your college experience.I had a wonderful college experience. My small, liberal arts school was a perfect pit for me because I was able to engage in high level academic courses and leadership positions on campus.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?I would choose English Literature or sociology as my major. I choose communications at first because I thought it was more "business" focused. I've learned that majors really matter very little in post graduate career opportunities.What advice can you offer other students?Try everything. Take courses in different subjects. Try out different clubs. Study abroad. Use your college years to find the things that you love and want to do. If you're passionate about something you'll be able to find a career in it after you graduate."
