    It depends. The school fee is at times a bit on the higher side, but the school's academics are excellent as well as the opportunities to network with successful alumni's. DPU also hosts its fair share of events like hosting influential talkers and putting on social events.

    DePauw is not the most affordable school for everyone. However, what the money goes to is so beneficial and inevitably comes back to the student in some way, shape, or form. They really try to work with students individually to make it financially more affordable. They have so many opportunities for scholarship, including for winter term trips. No matter how much you pay to go here you receive a top notch education from an increasingly popular liberal arts university that would look good on any job application. On top of it all there are changes coming to the campus in the next few years that are only going to make the expense more worth it.

    The tuition is very high, but the educating is really good. Now about location, we are basically in the middle of nowhere, so unless you have a car, you will most likely be bored a lot.

    DePauw's faculty is comprised of amazing professors who teach very small classes (the average class size being 18 students). Although you get a great education here and are offered many opportunities, the price for the school is high overall and the financial aid office doesn't help much with finding scholarships for students.
