Most Helpful Review for DePaul University

It's probably easy for most people to slack off in classes, but once you start it's hard to break those bad habits. If you keep your head in the game and prioritize, your classwork at DePaul should be no sweat. Advisers will place you in classes that will challenge you, but that you will be able to keep up with as well. Aside from the classroom though, I'm learning a lot about myself, my friends, and different communities and lifestyles. Chicago is a great place for a classroom. There's always something more to learn, especially when you're in the city.

    DePaul University has all the resources you need -- well at least when it comes to the College of Computing and Digital Media, which I attend. I don't know about the other areas of study, but in that one I am certain that anyone going into that field will have all the tools they need to succeed. The teachers also know what they're doing, and are ready to help you out should you need it.

    Choosing DePaul University to obtain my Undergraduate Degree was the best decision I have made. The faculty, and all professors genuinely want to see you succeed. They offer tons of of help, to literally answer any question you have ranging from academics to finance.

    DePaul is diverse, you will see and meet new people from all over the U.S and even from different countries and find they are amazing. Joyous, there are always activities to do and so many clubs that you will fit into one. DePaul is Chicago based, you're so close to the opportunities the city has to offer and DePaul will help you find them.

    DePaul University's locations are beautiful especially the Loop and Lincoln Park campuses. The university always makes sure to provide it's students with the best care. It is one of the only schools that still has trimesters but this great because the students are able to take more classes in one year.

    This universtity is a fast-paced learning environment. DePaul is welcoming and open, but is quick to let you gain our independence as an adult. It is very up to date with its technology and very open about teaching one how to get adjusted to the software and machinery.

    DePaul is a school dominated by theater students and other students in the arts. The quality of academics is fairly poor, but the theater students seem to enjoy classes the most. Community service and leadership are the most important parts of DePaul life.
