"This is the worst institution in the entire country!! Do not go here!! I attended in the 97-98 school year. They will take outrageous college loans on you. I am still paying on them in 2015 and I only attended for one year! They do not care about anything but swindling you out of money, and if you have any issue what-so-ever, it is your fault! I moved from NC to Columbus Oh to start school on Oct 31, 1997. When I got to the college to get assigned my dorm room, I was asked if I had any special request/situations that they needed to know about my housing. I told them I was gay and needed to room with someone who was ok with this. They assigned me a 2 bedroom, one bath apartment with 5 other guys (which they charged each of us $1200/mo rent). When I met them I knew that it was best if I went back into the closet. Three of them were basic thugs, one was a jock, and the other was a drug dealer. All of them were homophobes, this was apparent by them using the words faggot and queer in EVERY sentence. Everything was fine until just after April. I had met a local boy and we started dating on the down low. But one day I was invited by some lesbian friends of mine to go to a gay nightclub with my boyfriend and them. As we were leaving I heard someone behind me yell "Fuck you Faggot!" and I was hit in the back of the head with a liquor bottle. My room mates curious as to what I was doing had followed me that night and seen me leaving the club holding my boyfriends hand. They proceeded to beat the crap out of both of us. When it was all over I had a broken nose, two black eyes and a 2 inch gash in my scalp that required 6 stitches. I called the police but they told me there was nothing they could do because there were no witnesses, but they would accompany me to pick up my things at the apartment. When we arrived there, they had removed all my possessions from my room and thrown them into the mud, where 2 people were helping themselves to the pile. When the cop entered the apartment at my request, he arrested them for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. Which of course they began to threaten to kill me, beat me again and so on. The next day I went to the school to inform them of what had happened. When I was talking to the counselor, she proceeded to tell me it was my fault that it all happened for "choosing that lifestyle". She offered to move me into a new apartment but without 5 other roommates I would be responsible for the entire rent of 7200/mo. Her recommendation was to go back to my apartment and "make nice with the roommates they had assigned me"! Unwilling to take my life into my own hands, I moved back home. This is just one instance of Devry being a crappy college. The federal government should not allow this company to take out loans to cover its EXTREMELY HIGH tuition. I cannot stress this enough..... DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!!"
