    Those who are dedicated and want to get through college as fast as possible but still want the whole experience are in the right place.

    Tips for prospective students

    Time is an incredibly important factor here. Manage it wisely.

    Bang for the buck

    It is more on the expensive side, but for all the benefits you get it is well worth it. Think of it as an investment in yourself.

    This school is great for computer geeks and people who want to pursue a career in business.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you have enough money to pay for this school. Tuition is usually around $7,000 for full-time students.

    Bang for the buck

    I feel that going to this school is a great investment because it is a well known school and it will help get a job more faster than others would.

    Am enjoying being here

    The school is very enjoyable. We have flexible schedules and it lets us have more time to do our work or spend time with people out side of class.

    Am learning a lot

    Devry University has great teachers who explain everything in depth which gives us much knowledge of the subject at hand.

    Diligent students with exceptional time management. Also must be willing to work with online applications and services.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply online or talk to a representative to get more details.

    Bang for the buck

    Though DeVry tuition and fees are at times overwhelmingly expensive, it is worth the knowledge you will gain with the hands on experience you are paying for.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am enjoying my college life as a whole; however a DeVry is very different from a traditional college system which some may find as a benefit, while others may find as a shortcoming.

    Am learning a lot

    The academic approach that DeVry takes does work, for some. Specifically for those who enjoy to have real life application rather than just seeing it in a textbook. DeVry offers a full lab experience for many of the degrees they offer.

    There are business majors at this school, but I'm usually around with the: Web designers Gamers and game designers (P.S. and there are hardcore female gamers) Computer nerds, like myself.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just because this school is small doesn't mean you won't have a large group of friends. Also, Houston DeVry is starting a lot of programs, and we even have yearly student appreciation days, and even a student holiday. LoL!! DeVry is coming up there, and I think it's a great school to go to. I know I sound like a robot right now, but it's true. I don't know how to put into my own words on how awesome DeVry is. I'm glad I chose to go here.

    Bang for the buck

    I don't know what to say about this one. You do graduate faster, and you do get into your degree faster, there's a lot of free expensive software you get from DeVry. You also have a huge discount on the adobe software, free laptop for the CIS majors, and free tutoring. So yea, you're getting your money's worth here.

    Am enjoying being here

    I met a lot of people hanging out in the gaming area. I didn't think my life would change so much from going to DeVry. I honestly thought that since DeVry was smaller then my high school, I was just going to be there for school and that's it. I was wrong.

    Am learning a lot

    I like how fast you get into your field of study. The classes are also small, so there's more room for asking the teacher for questions. There is even free tutoring when you need help.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want to finish faster and get hands on learning from Professor's who teach and working their fields of expertise then this is the place to be.

    Bang for the buck

    It is a bit pricey, but I have the best Professor's, they are engaging in class and throughout the week, if I need them. The same goes for the Dean's at DeVry. If I need something they are available and are always looking to listen and help students.

    Am enjoying being here

    I hate to waste time. In a 4 year University that happens. Semesters are long and drawn out. Here at DeVry you have a compact 8 week course with 16 to 24 weeks of work being funneled into that 8 weeks. There is no time for messing around. Just getting straight to the subject at hand.

    Am learning a lot

    A college that is extremely fast paced, taught by Professors that work in the field they teach, and that you are 100% responsible for all of YOUR own work. A place where tutoring is available, even from the Professor's if needed. I highly recommend this college to the student who doesn't need al the fluff of a State College like UCLA or USC, yet still wants to be taught by highly qualified Professor's.

    It's great for the type of student that likes to jump right in, you don't just take all of the Gen ed. classes first, you get started taking classes in you major right away.It's also great for students who want to be done fast. I should graduate in the next two years, that will put me years ahead of my peers who won't graduate for another four. It's also great for people who need flexible schedules, You can have day classes, or night classes on any day of the week except Sundays, and most classes are offered on multiple days, so you can choose what days will work best for you (you'll have to stick with that day though).

    Tips for prospective students

    Definitely apply for scholarships, make sure you know what your professors expectations are, and don't take more classes than you can handle, it might not seem like much, but over 16 credit hours at a time is a lot to handle. The classes are 8 weeks instead of 16, so you can get done sooner, but you have to learn the same information in a shorter period of time, so make sure you don't fall behind. Also if you're a junior or a senior in high-school ask about their passport2college and start now programs. They allow some High-school students to take college courses free (except for the books, but they're usually less than $100).

    Bang for the buck

    It's a bit pricey, but it's worth it. Not only do you get a good quality education, you also meet a lot of people who hold important positions in the world, or you meet people who know people, it's all about networking these days.

    Am enjoying being here

    It's loads of fun, we've got a video game club, and they hold all sorts of events, some of the events are just for fun, but they also have events to help you get prepared for the world.

    Am learning a lot

    This school is great for learning new things, all of the teachers are really helpful, and the small class sizes mean that you can talk to them about your problems face to face.

    Don't know what your career goals. Come in and meet with one of the staff. They're more than happy to sit down with you and set some goals.

    It is a little on the pricey side. But when I graduate I feel confident I will be able to get a well paying job.

    It is great for students who do not care for listening to a professor go on and on about whatever course you are studying. For students that have family and work because you can log in at any time and you wont have to push work or family aside. Everything is at your fingertips. The professor's lectures, the books, the research, the assignments, everything!

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for as many scholarships as possible. If you meet the requirements, do it. Save all your essays you submit for scholarships and all essays you do in school. You will find it extremely valuable when applying for future scholarships.

    Bang for the buck

    I did not have the finances available to enroll full time and am currently enrolled half time. This school is one of the greatest but can be a bit more expensive then other schools. But, there are lots of benefits that come with that as well.

    Am enjoying being here

    I have enjoyed being here so far. I am attending online and it can be the best way to go. Assignments are given in the beginning of the week and can be completed on your own convenient time. As long as people meet the deadlines, which is by the end of the week, the courses are enjoyable and knowledgeable.

    Am learning a lot

    DeVry is a great college full of valuable professors giving their students valuable information. I started in the summer of last year and have already obtained a great amount of knowledge. The courses are interesting and enjoyable.

    DeVry university is a great place for people that want to become a net worker, programmer, whom wants to start there own business,computer engineer, they also have other colleges that are there as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    College is a whole lot different then high school they treat you like an adult and you need to know to start your work early to make sure it is complete and the way the Professor wants it to be and never be afraid to ask for assistants that's what they are there for.

    Bang for the buck

    I knew from the start that DeVry University was worth the amount of money that i will have to pay to get the education i am needing to become a computer Programmer.

    Am enjoying being here

    The other students and faculty that I have had the pleasure to meet has been very kind to me.

    Devry is a great school for technical program and most of the professors are great. So it would be a great college for undergrads for technical field.

    Tips for prospective students

    One tip is to register before registration time open because the financial department can be a hassle.

    Bang for the buck

    I would say you do get the education you pay for, but the financial aid department can be annoying at time.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campuses are nice and great location for you apply for internship or job. The professors are nice and so are the students.

    Am learning a lot

    The professors in the NY campus are very nice, and very knowledgeable people of their respective field. Classes are hard depending on which professor you have, there are one or two professor that doesn't really care about the student; but all the professors I have so far are very willing to help.

    If you are ready to earn a degree in a timely manner, Devry is the school for you. They will do everything they can to help you succeed. Also, if you are a stay at home mom or dad and want to earn a degree, Devry has great online courses that can easily be fit into your schedule.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared on your first day. Do not be afraid to ask questions and speak up in class. Most Professor's respect a student who is not afraid to ask questions.

    Bang for the buck

    I know that my degree I will receive from Devry will be worth every penny.

    This school is at an accelerated rate so its not for a slacker. Then again what college is? The classes are 8 weeks long instead of 16 weeks. It is all year round which is nice for the person wanting to finish quickly.

    Tips for prospective students

    Check out the school a few times before you join. If you know someone currently attending have them set up a time that you can attend one of the classes as a visitor. I have seen a few people do it and from what I can tell they all seem to like the experience.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is expensive. Keep in mind that it is a private University though so its going to be more expensive than other options. They do offer quite a lot though such as the free tutors if you get stuck in one of your courses.

    Am enjoying being here

    The school is small meaning small classes (10-20 students). I love this because you get personal attention from the teacher. They really are able to help you out personally.

    Am learning a lot

    I love the professors here. They all know what they are doing and every one of them that I have had so far worked in their field for a while before teaching. They have practical and useful information about their fields. I really love the fact that the Academic Support Center has personal tutors for no additional cost.

    Don't worry about tuition if you can apply for financial aide, and course materials for the two years I have been here never exceed $35 per class with books rented.

    Accounting Business Health Professions Engineering Management

    Tips for prospective students

    If you decide to attend DeVry, take full advantage of all the help that is offered. It is worth the time and the money if you do. Also make sure to keep in contact with the student advisors (you get more than one, you actually get a team) as they can help you with planning out the best course of action for classes. The financial planning team is also of great help; they can make sure that you are getting the most education for your money, and they keep you aware of where you stand when it comes to financial aid. LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!!

    Bang for the buck

    The school does cost a bit more than most, but you definitely get what you pay for. There is also the bonus of free software that normally would cost a few hundred dollars if you were to buy it on your own. Everything that comes with the courses is up-to-date and you don't have to purchase an actual textbook. Most everything that is included in the online courses is electronic. I love not having to carry heavy books, paper, etc., from class to class.

    Am enjoying being here

    If I weren't attending DeVry, I would not be going to school right now. First starting out, the coaches and everyone on staff, are extremely helpful and reach out to make sure that you are doing well in school. I really appreciated the personal attention and now I am comfortable with my classes and the degree I am pursuing; not to mention, I am finally able to get the grades I know that I am capable of. If I don't, it is mainly my own fault.

    Am learning a lot

    By being able to attend school online, I have been able to work on my own time and still get everything done. DeVry has the best instructors that I have dealt with in a long time. Tutors are available and even other students are extremely helpful; plus, the course material is fully engaging and easy to follow.

    DeVry Online is great for students that are willing to go back to school to continue their education but just can't fit being physically present in a classroom into their busy schedule. It allows me to go to school, work, and be at home with my family.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to open up while participating in the discussion boards. These boards allow you to interact with your teacher and other students. Sometimes if you are having a problem, you may not be the only one with that problem. You could either help someone or find help in the discussions boards. And the most important thing of it all is BE CAREFUL of PLAGIARISM... If you are going to quote someones work or use something from it... always remember to GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE!!

    This university is not the cheapest but if you are committed in your education as I am, everything will go perfectly. My time here is going by fast and as soon as I know it I will be a great influence in the work community once I have graduated.

    Am enjoying being here

    The University here is small and that is what makes it great compared to the bigger universities. I am able to get one on one time with my professors any time I want. What is also great is that this school is year round which will help me graduate within three years instead of four. What is also nice about the university is that you do not have to go to the university five times a week. I only go two times a week as a full time student allowing me to work and have some free time.

    I have been here for a year now and have found this university to be great. I was first worried about if the college was going to be what I expected and when I moved to come to this university it has been more then expected. I am pursing a business degree and the success coaches and professors help you to accomplish your goals.

    i've compared several colleges when i was getting ready to return to school, and i thought that i'd pay more with devry because the classes seem to have higher standards, however as i was helping a relative of mine with her financial information for another school, i was surprised that my tution is lower than hers and she still has to purchase books. also, her school does not provide their students with their software.

    Do it yourselfers, and online learners.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you like online classes it is great, but if you need a teacher to explane something to you then I don't think it is the school for you. It could take almost a week for a teacher to get back with you online.

    Bang for the buck

    I was really expensive.

    I did enjoy being there until they ran out of classes for me on campus and I had to do all online classes. Then I felt like I didn't get as much out of the class as I could have.

    Am learning a lot

    I was when I first started because I had easy classes, then my harder classes got put all online then there was no one to ask any questions to. And if I sent an email it would take almost a week for someone to get back to me.

    What to do for fun

    They have a game room for you and many after school activities. They have card game tournaments and they are evening starting with a rock climbing club. The funnest things to do in that school are the club activities.

    Food and Dining

    The food there is very good. They offer anything between cereal for breakfast, or sandwiches for lunch. They have snacks for you that are always available if you need it, as well as game room in the cafeteria. They have a t.v as well as couches to relax; I give it a A+ for cafeteria atmosphere.

    Dorm Life

    The University I go to does not have a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    I would say that these classes are very challenging no matter what your going there for. These classes are meant to show you challenges that will be presented to you in your career and it's very time consuming. A lot of the classes are online as well, so you have to be a least a little educated in how to use the computer.

    Tips for prospective students

    The most important thing, I could say is don't procrastinate and don't be afraid to ask for help. Devry has tutors who has been through the courses we have and are more than just helpful. I would also advise to join at least one club if you have the time, because that can help you make friends a lot easier and help you get a lot of connections that may be helpful for your future.

    In three sentences

    If I had to rate Devry University, I would give it a ten out of ten because this school is a real example of what other schools should be like. The faculty care about the students everyday struggles in school and they even give advice from their own personal experience. They encourage club activities and follow up with you to see what your doing, as well as giving you helpful advice if your falling behind.

    There are cameras in the labs with computers galore, and the security guard at the front desk that walks around and unlocks the classrooms. There are always faculty around to help students if they are lost or confused.

    Clubs and Activities

    I am actively involved with the clubs at DeVry and love it. I'm president of an honor society and love planning things for students. Other clubs offer so much for the students and there is always something happening so students are involved with the school.

    Great for these types of students

    This schools is amazing for technology-based students. Java, visual arts, computer information systems, and more. I'm a graphic design student, and I could not have picked a better school.

    We recently had a video game tournament with other DeVry campuses near us. Microsoft sponsored the event with freebies and discounts for students participating. It was a blast and was the first tournament ever there for video gaming. It may even happen again!

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition seems high per semester, but that's because they include the prices for books, tutoring help, lab fees, and many other things that they explain that may pertain to each class. There are no dorms, so tuition does not include any living costs.

    What to do for fun

    There are a lot of clubs at the DeVry Addison campus. I'm president of Phi Theta Kappa, and it is so much fun. I'm also a member of the video game club. There are clubs for every kind of student, and one club that accepts every student just for fun!

    Food and Dining

    Cafeteria in DeVry, Addison, is a great place, located in the commons. It's where students come together and student while dining over the food from the cafeteria.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms at DeVry, Addison.

    Academic Rigor

    While the grading is easy to understand, students still need to work for their grades and the effort really pays off in the end. Teachers grade fairly based on effort more than anything else. It shows when a student actually cares than a student working for a grade.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't take anything for granted, love your email, and keep in touch with your professors because they are willing to help outside of the classroom with academics.

    Campus is really safe, there seems to be little to no violence, besides only identified alumni or students need to scan and check-in with security before entering inside the campus.

    There aren't many clubs to be involved in besides internships and visiting the library, and relaxing near the commons.

    Unfortunately, there is no place for students to dorm in the institution. However, there cozy suites that will be nice to stay in near the city of Long Beach.

    Academic Rigor

    The Academic rigor at DeVry University is high. It is critically important for a student to maintain consistency in their works and projects. Meeting deadlines and participating in class can increase the chance for a pupil to be successful.

    Tips for prospective students

    Asking questions and being involved has been a couple of my strongest tactics for success. However, a student should not approach shyness to the professors or any staff, and make sure to keep a positive attitude always. Thirdly, being on time and meeting deadlines will determine your future success at DeVry University.

    I understand the tuition for going to DeVry is much higher than other colleges in Nevada due to the convenience of attending online. I don't agree that the price per credit is almost six times the amount of the local college here though.

    Each individual is different. I believe the best way to have fun is to do something you enjoy. It will give your mind the break it needs so you can go back to studying when the time comes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Before going to DeVry, I would advise students to know what they would like to major in. It is an extremely expensive school and most students do not have the money to waste trying to figure out what they want to become.

    In three sentences

    DeVry University is a great college for those who want to get their degree as fast as possible. The teachers I've had are professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. The only downfall with DeVry is the cost of attending.

    Waste of money in my opinion because I was teaching my professors about networking. It doesn't feel student orientated.

    DeVry University is great for students who want to earn a degree from home (online) and want to earn a degree incredibly fast.

    Tips for prospective students

    For anyone considering attending DeVry University, I must say that it is vital to your rate of progress that you constantly pursue the provided information. If you fall behind, it is very difficult to catch up - especially in the accelerated, eight-week courses.

    Bang for the buck

    The abundant information provided in the courses, the speed in which a student can graduate, and the industry-grade materials provided make me feel like I am getting a huge bang for my buck.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy attending DeVry University because of the speed in which courses are completed; each course I take lasts eight weeks (as opposed to sixteen). I also enjoy the free software that DeVry University provides for enrolled students. However, I find that there is a serious lack of qualified professors for some of the newer degree programs (Game and Simulation Programming, Multimedia Design, etc.); half the time I am figuring out how to solve a problem using the Internet simply because the professor doesn't know the answer. This makes me question the need for a professor in the first place.

    Am learning a lot

    Each course provides adequate materials and information to the students. There is no spoon-feeding of the information, so students must be responsible enough to pursue the material themselves. Because of this, it is possible to learn a lot of valuable information in the accelerated, eight-week courses. On the flip-side, it is very possible for a student to fail a course due to procrastination.

    Devry is a great college for students that are into technology! For those that are into learning fixing computers and how a network works (routers, switches); this is the college to come and learn!

    Devry has convenient classes either online or on campus! Also, the school helps their students getting internships. I had the honors to get into an internship with the NYC Transit Authority at their Information Technology department.

    If you are actually into what you want to study, then go ahead. You will need ambition in order to succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    As mentioned, you will need to study outside of class in order to truly succeed. This is coming form a Game & Simulation Programming student, where most courses have project associated with them.

    Bang for the buck

    Certain professors are better than others, so depending on the level of detail they provide the course may or may not seem worthwhile.

    Am learning a lot

    Even though it is a school, in order for a student to truly succeed here (or at any college) they must also do their own studying outside of the classroom. It will help when they get to senior year.

    Tech junkies, self-motivated students, People juggling real life while getting an education, people who want to be prepared and marketable for today's tech-based world

    Tips for prospective students

    Only sign up for the online classes if you truly believe you can be self-disciplined and have all the right technology to participate. That usually means a fairly modern laptop with a fast internet connection, along with word processing and presentation-building software. Sometimes DeVry seems unfairly PC-oriented, but they give access to students on different platforms.

    Bang for the buck

    DeVry education is pretty comparable to a lot of the state colleges in California, where a higher education isn't cheap. It's a technical and vocational college too, which means you're learning valuable material. Still, if you can get your basic classes out of the way before attending, it'll save you some money. It's the technical classes that are worth your real time and money.

    Am enjoying being here

    It's a challenge taking the online classes, but I'm looking forward to starting my first round of in-person classes this fall. Depending on which campus you attend (or online), you might find it more challenging.

    Am learning a lot

    If you have a specific degree in mind, you will learn a lot and you will learn immediately. If this is your second degree or a degree that's different from one you started elsewhere, there might be some repetition, but you'll get a wealth of great information from people who can demonstrate their skills.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are going online. Then log on several times a week don't just skim through the discussions but read each one. It may take longer and you may be busy but it will be worth it trust me. Some of your classmates have a lot of knowledge to share and a different way to explain things to where you can understand it better.

    It is extremely expensive depending on what you are going through. I advise everyone to take as many classes per session as you can to get through the classes as fast as you can.

    Go to a community college to transfer non-core classes over to Devry.

    Bang for the buck

    Devry is too expensive and all the theory courses could be learned at a community college for cheaper. Not worth the money. Online books are required and the can cost up to $250 flat. Right now I am looking for scholarship because Devry has eaten up $30,000 in loans I have to pay back and the just notified me that my fasfa is running out of funds. Unfortunately, Devry has taught me what I signed up to learn, which is Multimedia Design and development- with a minor in Web Game Programming. They wouldn't give me my core classes until my Junior year. I just had one Web developmental class, a photoshop class, a flash animation class and I am still waiting for the rest of my core classes. I want to continue my education with Devry to be able to reach my core classes I am going to need scholarships. I want to be able to obtain my 4 year degree and graduate.

    Great for these types of students

    I am 28 years old, single and commute about an hour round trip each day. I like to pursue interests such as running marathons, weightlifting, reading and having a social life with friends and family. Going to Devry online has allowed me to finish my degree while not giving up the pursuits most important to me.

    Tips for prospective students

    In my time at Devry I have been an online student so I will go from that perspective. Be prepared to get a lot of emails/calls in the beginning. The school wants to make sure you have your tuition paid, academic help secured, any feedback on your experience, etc. You'll learn over time what to pay attention to and what you can ignore (like the frequent surveys). Most importantly, make sure you are on top of your classes. At a physical campus you don't have a lot of work to do until an exam or paper is due. However, online requires you to stay on top of the work. You will be logging in to your classes at least 3-4 days per week to do discussion posts, read and submit assignments. Do not procrastinate!! The week runs from Monday-Sunday so I like to have my work done before the weekend just in case.

    Bang for the buck

    Well Devry is a little more expensive per credit hour. However, I feel the education is worth it and the school has a good name in the marketplace. In addition, the sessions are only 8 weeks, allowing one to move quickly toward their degree. As a transfer student, I would also like to add they were very accommodating with my previous credits and I didn't lose any credits. Yes you can get a degree for less money, but I feel the cost at Devry is worth it.

    Am enjoying being here

    I have enjoyed my time at Devry. The material is enough to keep me busy and challenged, but not more than I can handle. All of my professors have been accessible to any help I may need. The sessions are only 8 weeks so they fly by quickly. I was debating between Devry and University of Phoenix. A friend of mine was an admissions counselor at both schools and strongly encouraged me to attend Devry. That was all I needed to hear.

    Am learning a lot

    Having been out of college for the last 8 years, I had some reservations about going back to finish my degree. I had gone through almost 2.5 years at the Ohio State University, one of the top universities in America. Attending Devry online was my best bet in terms of finishing my degree in the least amount of time. However I was somewhat nervous about the quality of the curriculum and professors. I am glad to say I made a good choice in terms of learning. The professors are almost all currently working in the field they are teaching in. They have a great deal of real world experience in the topics and bring this to the classroom. All textbooks being used are very recently published. Most importantly, I haven't noticed a difference in the quality of information being presented or a lack of material to be covered. I have enjoyed my time so far in this past year.

    The course work is not unbearable. The courses are 8 weeks long, or 7 weeks and the 8th week is your final. You are not expected to do to many assignments at once. Each week your course work is laid out for you, and you know exactly what is expected of you. As long as you do what you are required you should not fail.

    the school is very affordable and you definitely get value for the money spent. the professors are very helpful and make it easy to get your work done. you are not given four or five classes at once to take. if you go full time, which is cheaper, you only take two classes at once which makes it easier on you as a student.

    i give five stars because it isn't too rigorous but it isn't too slack either. devry does not over-burden its students with loads of course work like other colleges tend to do. you only take two classes per session, four per semester, and that is full time!

    Tips for prospective students

    keep in contact with your adviser during your enrollment and application process. make sure to notify him or her of any changes in contact information or if you move. keep in contact with the finance department as well to keep up to date on financial aid status. after acceptance and upon the start of classes, just stay focused and work hard and you will do great.

    Campus Safety

    the decatur campus of devry has a very low crime rate. a few cases of theft, but there are cameras everywhere and security on campus.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    my campus, decatur, ga, is located on top of the decatur marta (metro atlanta rapid transit authority) station. it could not be more convenient for commuting while saving gas. also it is located in the heart of decatur, on the town square.

    Bang for the buck

    if i ever pause to consider why i am at devry and paying so much money, i stop myself and remember all the professors and deans i have had the past year. they have 18, 20, 25, even 30+ years at devry!. there is something to be said for a school that inspires loyalty in their staff. between that and lifetime career services, i am sticking.

    What to do for fun

    there are clubs and student activities but the only ones i have attended were student appreciation type events held on campus in decatur, ga. they always had plenty of food, and a nice variety of local restaurants to cater the meals.

    Food and Dining

    there are many small restaurants in the decatur square area. also some bars and pubs, but there is not any dining on decatur campus

    Dorm Life

    i know that metro atlanta devry locations offer some student housing in apartements. i do not live in student housing but have had some classmates that do. they seem to be good friends, helping each other get school work done and teasing each other about coming to class with no sleep

    Academic Rigor

    i could rate this high, but i know that devry is not the hardest; i am an 'a' student, so i work very hard. but most of my points in each class are from completing all of the work, and each part within those requirements. discussions online may be worth more than homework, and you will probably learn specific skills there.

    Tips for prospective students

    work hard to develop your plan of study, and make up your mind to work hard before you start. you still have to pay for it if you fail, so might as well succeed.

    In three sentences

    make sure you bring all your unofficial transcripts; the sooner you give them your records, the sooner they can evaluate your potential credits. make sure you bring your income tax returns info; it will help the finance department to best aid you in student grants and loans. ask your admission adviser if there are any scholarship for transfer students or new students, you never know if there is one that you immediately qualify for one, there are so many scholarships out there.

    Food and Dining

    i gave this 3 stars because devry doesn't have a food and dining option for online students, but since i am studying from home, i'm rating my own cooking. it's not bad, but it's not great :)

    Tips for prospective students

    speaking from experience, if you are going to join devry straight out of high school, you should be prepared for the drastic change in the way education is received. if taking online classes, you no longer have to fight through traffic and parking, but you do not have the supervision of a professor in the classroom. this may sound like an awesome deal, but if you do not have the discipline to sit yourself down and do school, then you may want to consider a different school or attend devry at an actual campus. again, this isn't bad on devry, it is just dependent on the student that will be attending.

    In three sentences

    devry university is a great place for learning at your own pace at the convenience of your own home. the students and staff are all willing to contribute to discussions and help one another out. so far, my experience at devry has been nothing but positive.

    although grading can be rough, the staff can be flexible if you keep them informed. i fell sick with strept throat and pneumonitis but i kept my professor informed of my progress and he gave me the time to catch up on all my studies as long as i kept up on discussions.

    Tips for prospective students

    keep up on discussions, they can make or break your grades. if you keep up with them good grades are sure to be in your future. if you are internet only, don't get stuck waiting until the end of the week for everything.

    Campus Safety

    the campus has a patrol man walking around making sure everyone is safe. along with that and the minimal hostilities i see there don't really make the campus dangerous in the first place.

    Clubs and Activities

    they have enough clubs to get students participating with groups of other students that are graduating with the same degree.

    Bang for the buck

    if you have the money for it, the classes help the students learn about their degree well enough for whenever they graduate they can apply them at the minimum with their job.

    What to do for fun

    nothing really other than walking around and playing around with the computers in the libraries.

    Food and Dining

    the first devry i attended had its own cafe and the food and prices were really good. they maintained it very well and had a reasonable selection that could get us through our breaks. the one i am currently attending does not have one but has a vending machine for those that need a snack.

    Dorm Life

    the universities i went to did not have dorms for the students to live in so i had to either drive a long way there or rent someplace close by. but after hearing about the one my brother went to that had dorms, a lot of problems occurred between him and his roommates. devry did the best the could to bring down the situation but it ended up feeling like wack-a-mole.

    Academic Rigor

    the professors i had did a lot to help us understand the courses and how they will apply to everyday situations along with our degree in the end. they teach fairly and were patient with those that had hard times understanding the material.

    Tips for prospective students

    Great for these types of students

    Devry is excellent for the older student, who knows exactly what they want out of their degree, and who understands how not to waste their time on unnecessary classes and electives.

    Bang for the buck

    Devry is a very expensive school, and there is a reason for this. There is no extra padding in the class; you don't study fluff to pass the time until your next test. As stated previously, every single class you take leads you to your degree, and on further to your career. As long as you are determined and motivated and a strong student, you will definitely find Devry worthy of your time and money.

    Food and Dining

    I don't live on campus, so I can't say anything about the dining hall.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live on campus, so I can't say anything about the dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    Devry is a very challenging university, especially when taken online. Your courses are fast-paced, and oriented not around passing tests, but around building stepping stones for your degree. Every class is difficult, every discussion is worthwhile, and every assignment tests your knowledge.

    Tips for prospective students

    This is not a school for those unsure of where they want to go in life. If you want to flit from class to class within separate degrees, a more typical 4-year school would be for you. Devry is only for those who have a strong general idea of what sort of degree they want to pursue.

    In three sentences

    Devry University is a very degree oriented school; entirely focused on preparing you completely for the career of your choice. They don't waste your time with classes unrelated to your degree. Instead, every class you take counts fully towards your hours, your knowledge, and your career.

    The online campus is great for students who are able to learn and comprehend matrials on their own, manage their time and have a drive for success no matter what.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition for Devry Online can be quite expensive. That is the reason I am applying for loans.

    Dorm Life

    I have not experienced the dorm life because I attend the online campus.

    Academic Rigor

    People say online college is easy, but don't let that comment fool you. Devry Online gives the same amount of assignments and readings as any on-site campus would. The attendance/discussion policy is very strict and important. Late policy on assignments is rarely accepted by any professor unless its a real proven emergency. All in all, the online platform is no different from an on-site campus except, you're not in a class room.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are capable of managing you're time and teaching yourself by reading, then the online campus is right for you. You need to stay focus on you're goals and hand in all assignments on time as well as have the required attendance and discussions allowed to receive a good grade.

    In three sentences

    I attend the online campus at Devry, which is very convinient for me as I am a mother, full-time employee and wife. The student services at Devry Online is very helpful in which they really push a student towards their success when they need it. The online environment is a great platform on Devry Online in the fact that you can communicate and discuss opinions on topics as in the campus classes.

    Bang for the buck

    With Devry you are getting much more then a school you are getting a future that you are fully prepared for and that makes the price worth it.

    Food and Dining

    At devry there is no formal dining area but they do have vending machines and a microwave and refrigerator that the students are able to use.

    Dorm Life

    For the school that I am going to there is no dorms available but it does have an area to hang out and study which is very important for students.

    Academic Rigor

    Devry is setup to prepare you for the real world so some of the courses are going to be challenging in order to prepare you for your career. Although it can be challenging taking 2 courses in 8 week span it is also rewarding when you complete it.

    Tips for prospective students

    When choosing devry to continue your education you want to make sure that you are prepared for a fast paced learning environment. You also want to stay committed and focused even when things get tough. Finally make sure you use the resources that are available for you.

    Food and Dining

    There are no cafeterias, but on occasion DeVry orders pizza or chick-fil-a for student appreciation.

    Academic Rigor

    Once you get into the junior & senior classes, the work load can be very difficult. Typically, a student reads 2 chapters, does a homework assignment, and is required to participate in approximately 2 online threaded discussions (3 postings per topic) each week. Time management is a must.

    Tips for prospective students

    DeVry is a great school, but make sure you are serious before enrolling. DeVry is a for-profit school and therefore very expensive. Really, really review your finances and the cost of the degree you are looking for. Credits do not easily transfer to other colleges, in fact, many colleges won't take DeVry credits because they have 8 week sessions, not the normal 15 week semesters. Students need to be prepared each week to read approximately 2 chapters, do homework assignments, and participate in online discussions. It is a lot of work, but it can be done with disciplined time management.

    In three sentences

    My DeVry professors have a wealth of on-the-job experience and seem genuinely interested in teaching their subjects. DeVry is incredibly expensive and students need to be serious before enrolling. Students should understand exactly what classes they need to take and be prepared to manage their own progress.

    DeVry's location offers a lot of fun things to around the school. Tinley Park has many restaurants in the area around the school. There are also a couple of movie theaters and places you can take classes. Tinley also has quite a few gyms very close by.

    I don't think they offer and actual cafeteria on campus but they have a nice lounge where you could get a quick snack or bring your own lunch. Many restaurants are located a few blocks away which is convenient.

    Do your best to get information turned in on time. You should keep up to date with enrollment along with any school work too.

    It depends on the location, but Devry is surrounded by police station in Chicago up north. Devry has security on patrol everywhere so safety is great.

    Clubs and Activities

    Devry has great basketball team. The new basketball court will even make practice better.

    What to do for fun

    Devry has gaming area where students can play ping pong, pool, and play wii games. Students can bring their games as well. But mostly students can just hang out and wait for the parties.

    Food and Dining

    Devry have good cafeteria area for students to eat breakfast to lunch foods. But it can be a little expensive for buy every other time. In my opinion it's better to eat out because it's cheaper.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms DeVry has to offer is a little expensive, but the rooms has descent space for personal use. The only problem is the TVs do not have cable at all. It would be a lot helpful to get a job to afford instead of taking out loans to pay the rent.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses at devry offers hands on experience or online experiences depending on the class itself. Hands-on experience will benefit students as it helps them learn better than online courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would go to different campus that have certain classes such as video game design. But other than that students who want to pursue their major will be given those type of courses. The school still requires some credits from different subjects.

    In three sentences

    DeVry University is a good for students who want to pursue web designs, electronics, game designers, business/account and nurses. They have great tutor services that is free. The computers there have good internet performances.

    Campus Safety

    I feel very safe while on the Devry Campus. They have a security guard that you always see and the people are usually always nice.

    Greek Life

    None.

    Clubs and Activities

    Any clubs they have are more for educational purposes, like mentoring.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for anyone that has a busy life. For any parent or a person who has a full time job.

    Bang for the buck

    Devry can be expensive, but there's financial aid to help. A lot of their activities they put on are free and you can easily get classes unlike impacted colleges. You may not get fun clubs or sports to join, but it helps you stay on track with your classes.

    What to do for fun

    The Devry in Elk Grove has a small area when you have nothing to do which has pool, a television, and ping pong. Other than that it's a small campus with mostly class rooms. They have some events like the bowling tournament I went to which was quite fun and free.

    Food and Dining

    The give you snacks here and there for free and they have multiple vending machines. Otherwise to get a complete meal you would have to go off campus.

    Dorm Life

    The one I attend is in Elk Grove which has no dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Getting in Devry University is easy and simple. Professors expect you to engage in group discussions every week for every class. Classes are only eight weeks you have to make sure you stay on task. Most professors their don't except late work and expect you to finish all work by the deadline you receive.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep up with your work and seek help from the great staff around you if you need it.

    In three sentences

    Devry University has a very helpful staff that tries to help you succeed in giving you the tools you need. Their classes are usually smaller than that of a big University which means more one on one time. Devry is an easy and fast way to pursue the dream of college.

    What to do for fun

    There are few to none on campus activities.

    Food and Dining

    The only food and beverages available are those in the vending machines although there is a nice area to eat in.

    Dorm Life

    The center city campus has no dorms and doesn't have any living accomodations.

    Academic Rigor

    It is easy to fail a course if you don't participate in discussions and you are automatically dropped from enrollment if you miss two classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Discussions are a major part of the course load and are the easiest way to make or break a grade. Tests are open book which, in my opinion, provides a crutch for students. They do provide adequate resources for accessing course materials including a computer lounge, online books, and the ability to print out those books on site. Tutors are also available.

    In three sentences

    Devry caters to the working adult demographic as it provides options such as accelerated courses as well as class times in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Some courses have design flaws and at times teachers will tell the class to bare with them because this is the first time they had to teach this course or first time they taught it since it had been redesigned. However they make up for this with the ability to evaluate your courses and teachers.

    Depending on which campus you attend there will always be something to do.

    Food and Dining

    There is no dining facility but you have access to restaurants outside of the school.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm but I think there are sources where you can get some type of housing.

    Academic Rigor

    I gave it three stars because the instructors are willing to help but you have to beware of the rules and regulations regarding class attendance or you will be appealing to reenter school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure your academic records are in order, make up your mind if your taking online and/or resident classes and if your military make sure you have the correct paper submitted to avoid delays.

    In three sentences

    The ability to attend class in person or online is great, the advisor and financial staff are pleasant and willing to help, and the on-track coaches are a great addition.

    Clubs and Activities

    I am not aware of any club that devry has, however Devry did have a recruiter from Sentara to come out and talk to students who are seeking employment in the medical field.

Security personnel report any possible criminal activity to local law enforcement personnel, and any possible code of conduct violation to the Dean of Students.

    I like that Devry usually holds many inviting occassions and invites everybody to the fun. This usually consists of food, games, prizes as well as drinks and staff if there are any questions or concerns.

    Bang for the buck

    I feel if I am going to get a loan for school it might as well be for the school of my choice. I preferred private over public because of the fast paced schedule, if I can graduate faster then there will be more career opportunities within those years as well as the overall cost for the given degree.

    What to do for fun

    Many students are often relaxing or watching movies or TV if not completing assignments or studying for their classes.

    Food and Dining

    Occasionally in the morning the staff prepares a variety of waffles and pancakes and offers them to students and staff. They are very good if warm. The vending machines are also very well stocked, they never run out of any particular product.

    What to do for fun

    DeVry does offer activities at the Phoenix campus; movie-nights, bowling and other group events for students to participate in. Because it is not a traditional campus, a lot of these activities are hard to participate in and are typically geared to a small portion of students.

    Food and Dining

    Because the Mesa campus, where I attend, is not a typical school campus, there is no cafeteria and only a small office area with vending machines. This is not a traditional school.

    Dorm Life

    I do not dorm with DeVry because I live at home and near campus. It is not required and only available for Phoenix (downtown) campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Because the classes are fast paced, there is a sense of urgency and importance in each class. The classes you take are directly linked to your degree and you are not forced to take electives that have no connection to the focus of your degree. For example, a business student doesn't have the option to take a graphic design class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you understand classes are fast paced and a student of DeVry must be prepared to work diligently at all times. Almost all classes are under 20 students, meaning the dynamics are different from any other schooling experience.

    The small class sizes and relationships you are able to build with teachers and classmates help you excel. Fast paced classes also help you get ahead and graduate on a timely matter.

    Campus Safety

    All of my time at the school, nothing has ever been stolen or any sort of incident involving the police. The biggest mishap on campus would be when a student locks their keys in their car d:

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs have been dying down a little over the past year, but our chapter of IEEE has some really promising stuff planned. In the past month in a half we have elected all new officials, created a newsletter, printed off stickers and t-shirts, as well as set the ground work for competitions against other schools.

    Bang for the buck

    Being able to essentially get 2 degrees for the price of one is unbeatable to me. Also, since I go to school year round, I am able to finish before my friends who go to a 4 year school!

    What to do for fun

    I am actively involved in clubs. I am both the secretary of our campus chapter of IEEE and the lead Student Ambassador. Those coupled with going to school full time, and working on the weekends to make money for books take up a lot of my free time. However, when I do find that I have a few extra hours, I go to the garage and make electronics project for fun (:

    Food and Dining

    My campus is not large enough to have a mess hall, so this doesn't really pertain to me.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms, but my campus offers student housing. This is nice for the people who don't have a place to live, but this does not apply to me.

    Academic Rigor

    It is defiantly a step up, but if you are passionate about your degree, and love to learn, you will have no trouble keeping up in the lecture as well as the course work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always do your research. For me, I was able to look at the two different degrees, and see how similar they are. Since they are only a few classes different, I decided to go for it!

    In three sentences

    DeVry offers everything that I was expecting and more. I am able to double major in both Electrical Engineering Technologies and Computer Engineering Technologies. This means that while my friends go to other 4 year schools, I am able to get both of my degrees in less time then they are able to.

    The locations of the Campus are not that many. In fact the campus that I attend is about thirty minutes away from my home. It is a small campus and small classes, but I enjoy that since it is more personable. Hopefully the school will get larger and more campuses can be built.

    Bang for the buck

    Every month Devry University has special events. The news letter is emailed to us and we are all welcome to attend. My favorite was a fifteen minute chair massage before class.

    For online students, I would recommend to have a mentor who will help you push through the hard times while you are in school. Life is not always easy, and challenges present themselves that would serve to prevent you from achieving your goals, but keep focused and strive to succeed. If you do, you will come out on top, with a degree and a bright future to look forward to.

    If you are driven to complete your education online, and you enjoy working with others in an online setting, but don't have 10-12 hours a day to devote to school, DeVry is probably a good fit for you. The instructors are highly educated and most are very friendly, so if you have an issue that needs to be worked out or if you need assistance with a concept, they are more than likely to help you. The financial aid process is easy to complete, and everyone I have ever encountered is courteous and professional.

    First, DeVry's student advisers are extremely friendly and supportive. Thus far, all of my professors have been extremely helpful and insanely responsive to questions I have asked. They are a very military friendly school and every time I have had a question, I have felt like I was on a one on one basis with them.

    What to do for fun

    There are often school and dorm activities, if not there is always the internet. Also, for the Psychology 305 course, you may be able to participate in some cool things as they have to host their own event (90% of the time free).

    Food and Dining

    After eating here for so long, the food taste bland, but if you are new you can marvel at the stuff the cooks can make you if you ask.

    Dorm Life

    They have events here at the dorms every month that encourage people to come together and talk, meet, relax. The administration is lax when it comes to some things and well usually give you the benefit of the doubt.

    Academic Rigor

    The academia is good depending on the teacher. So you may have it easy on session, then hard the next. Overall, stay on top of all your work, do it, then you should be fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    Know EXACTLY what you are getting financially as this is a FOR PROFIT school. Do all you work, and then you should be fine.

    In three sentences

    They have good teachers and staff, but have a heard time actually telling EVERYTHING you need to know about attending (or give you confusing info). They do have a great facility here otherwise, but the best part is the dorms (even though a 3 person room runs $2,700 a semester (4 months)). Once you pay your monthly/semester dorm fee, you enjoy A/C, cable, relatively fast internet, a buffet, to-go lunch's, and a alright community.

    Adults trying to finish your undergrad.

    Bang for the buck

    Yes it's pricy - but the benefit of completing courses quickly can easily off-set the cost.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are better than others - when you get to the 400 level the text books are more of a reference while you do a lot of research on your own. Textbook selections suck - lots of blended custom textbooks that can be out of date.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take in person whenever you can. Online is great, but know it is not going to be a cake walk. Some professors only want to say they are a professor but most actually want you to learn something.

    In three sentences

    DeVry was exactly what I was looking for - took most of my credits and got me done with my undergrad in a year. In person classes are better than online - online will actually take 3 times as much of your time with minimum required postings vs. the in person classes.

They actually know your name and you don't have to fight for the professors attention because most classes don't have more than 20 student.s

    DeVry University has a lot of opportunities to offer like Career Service, Student Central and Tutoring. These are all free services that are available to any student that is enrolled.

    A good college if you are looking for the flexible online options, but you need to be very self motivated. The pace is fast online and you will need to be able to research things on your own at times. Get what scholarships you can, because this is not a cheap college, but its worth it.

    One thing that is great about DeVry University is that they have a lifetime placement policy and they will actually help you to secure a job when you are finished. Not a lot of colleges actually follow through once you are done so this is a plus.

    The courses can be tough. It is harder to complete your education solely online, it is much easier when you can find a campus that you can attend for any courses that may be tougher for you. It just helps to have a teacher standing in front of you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your homework, investigate everything about your school including course requirements, financial obligations, and work discounts. A lot of companies offer discounts you may not even know about and the discounts differ from school to school. Research is key to finding a school where you will succeed in your goals.

I can always look in my student portal and know exactly what classes I still need to finish my degree. I am also always able to get on the spot assistance with any questions that I may have.

    im an online student, i dont eat on campus

    Dorm Life

    I am an online student; therefore, I do not live on campus. I dont believe that DeVry University owns campuses.

    Academic Rigor

    I feel that the classes do challenge me on an college level. The classes do not compare their difficulty level based off what other classes your signed up for. Each class has its own guidelines and expectations, and no matter what your load my be you are expected to me these guidelines to get the grade you deserve.

    Tips for prospective students

    DeVry classes are fast pace, 8 week courses and may not be right for everyone. The online classes can be similar to an independent study class but can be helpful if you have a busy schedule.

    In three sentences

    I love attending DeVry University sinces the classes are face paced and are 8 weeks long. This allows me the chance to completed my nursing pre-requisites faster so that I can start my Nursing Program. DeVry offers classes on campus and online and that is good for students with difficult life styles.

If you go to the campus, you can get a text when there is something wrong at the campus, so you do not have to be there.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is only one Activity on the campus and that is Gaming. This is very popular for the Gaming Degree and younger generation. The school tries to find ways to start activities, but they do not do a very good job at it.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    One of the school campuses is in a mall. This was very unusual location for a campus. The Sherman Oaks campus is in the Sherman Oaks Mall. This campus is one story and goes around the bottom of the mall. There is no room to grow this campus at its present location.

No question is stupid and all question get answer. The professors and the school really wants the students to learn the material that is being taught.

    Tips for prospective students

    This school is a fast pace school. It is not like the traditional school. The traditional school has two semester of 16 weeks and taking multiple classes, then one semester of 8 weeks, which usually in the middle of the two 16 weeks. So, you take less classes in the 8 weeks. The good part of the school is that you can take less class in a 8 week session. This is good to concentrate on the two classes and not 4 or 5 classes at time. All in all, you get out of school faster.

    In three sentences

    DeVry is a fast pace school this is not for everyone. DeVry is very proud of being a credited school. DeVry listens to their students.

    I have not seen nor heard of any incidents that involved injury of students. The campuses are small and easy to defend for security.

    There are some club programs like Aspire and the occasional student held tournaments in various things.

    Great for these types of students

    This is a good campus for students looking to get into their career as soon as possible. DeVry has several bachelor degree programs and a graduate program to earn your masters.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I honestly have not paid enough attention to know of any unusual traditions off the top of my head.

    Bang for the buck

    This university is all about the hands on learning, along with the use of ebooks. Students have the option to purchase the hard copies of books, but I prefer to save money and stick with the ebooks; they are adequate most of the time. The classes are small in size, with at most of 30 to 40 students depending on how many are enrolled into a class and the what the room size limit is. There have been courses that had as few as 5 students.

    What to do for fun

    There are several programs in DeVry, such as Aspire, which is designed to build a community within the DeVry circle, to have students be brought together and drive one another to fulfill their goals. In addition, the larger campuses would hold small tournaments for gamers, artists, etc. where people can attend to kill some time.

    Food and Dining

    They occasionally have Student Appreciation Week during the fourth week of a session. They usually bring in cookies, and other snacks for the students. There are vending machines with drinks and snacks as well. The larger campuses actually have a small hub where students can go purchase a hot sandwich, smoothie, etc. before heading out. The food is pretty good actually, they made me some amazingly good tuna sandwiches.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    It is difficult at times, especially when each session is only 8 weeks long. There are two sessions in a single semester, and they can become more difficult since they are so short. It forces you to sometimes push yourself to get things done sooner than you are comfortable with.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you planning to come to this university, keep in mind that this campus is a Regionally Accredited university, so if you are going to the Anaheim, CA campus and you want to transfer credits over, be sure that you attended a campus that is the Western Region or it may not be accepted.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just do the work when they ask you and you should be fine. They don't assign too much homework or class work and you pratically do all homeork and most of the assignments online so it makes things very easy. It's almost like facebook in a way.

    Devry University is an amazing school. It's very easy to fit in and everyone is super nice. The school actually cares whether or not you're failing and will do everything in their power to prevent that by getting you the help you need before it's too late. They are big on plagiarism so don't do it because you can get kicked out of school but that's only to teach you about life. If you ask questions and do the work they ask of you then you should be fine and pass with an A with no problems at all.

    Great for these types of students

    Busy, eager to finish degree, non-traditional, dislike traditional college atmosphere

    Compared to other online schools for my degree and on-campus schools, it is equal or less. You get a lot of resources, help, and a great degree for a comparable price. Expensive, as all schools are.

    Academic Rigor

    Can be intense because of the short classes, but I love learning the information and moving on.

    Tips for prospective students

    Search for scholarships early on. Keep up with your coursework because with 8 week classes, if you get behind you will miss a lot of important information and it can be difficult to catch up.

    Some campus are much much larger than the one in Hampton Roads. There is plenty of parking with a security guard present.

    It is pretty safe it's in the city enough said there.

    Greek Life

    It is mixed but does have a good number of gamers and anime freaks like myself. You will find it easy to talk to them too.

    Clubs and Activities

    They do have Clubs and Activities quite a few too. The only reason it has 4 stars is because ever since they let Lagraurdia have their Long Island city location it has been different. Everything seems to be tighter. They have less clubs and no real space for a club room. they used to have a pool hall, Anime area, Video game room and lounges, now I never see it but I do see postings all over the place.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who absorb information well and will look into it themselves. That is who Devry is best for.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Define usual... I don't judge others.

    Bang for the buck

    They are very expensive and don't give a whole lot. Your paying for well educated teachers and for the fact that it is a private school. All the tuition I paid and I do not have a laptop.... Also I am completely out of student loans subsidized and unsubsidized cause the school cost so much and I got another 2 semesters to go.

    What to do for fun

    They do many things for the students they have many events. I never go to them myself but I have heard from others the events to do often turn out to be extreamly fun.

    Food and Dining

    They don't really have a cafeteria with cooking. They do do events though which makes for nice eating (depending on who makes what) but most of the school itself it is junk food from the machines.

    Dorm Life

    If your looking for the Fratt life then devry is not for you. There are no dorms and it is all local. You have to get your own place.

    Academic Rigor

    I would give it 5 cause they have a lot of information available my only quarrel with it is that they don't have a lot of in class time so we have to absorb things like a sponge.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you really choose your major carefully and inquire as much as possible in regards to what the major can get you in the future. Also be prepared to do a good bulk of work on your own at home because in Devry your classes are online/offline and for most classes you will only meet about once a week.

    In three sentences

    The school itself is a great place to learn. I think that they have a pretty good amount of information and resources available to the students for them to get the most of their education. The professors are very dedicated and helpful as well.

    Anyone interested in computers, computer graphics, electronics, tech-gadgets, or gaming; DeVry is for you. If you don't care what the football team is doing, don't feel the need for most of the pomp-and-circumstance, and you just want to learn how to get into a career that really interests you; this is your place, too. If you know you may need a little bit of help, or are an adult returning to college, or are afraid of getting lost in a crowded, darkened auditorium full of strangers; check out DeVry.

    DeVry carries the same accreditation as most every Ivy-league school or state university, but at a lower cost. Many of the textbooks and research libraries are available electronically, which saves money for every student. DeVry has maximized their use of online resources to streamline the knowledge, as well as easing access to it.

    The downtown Kansas City location is directly across the street from the famous Power and Light district, where dining and entertainment abounds. The Arts District has many options for music and night-life. The food options available throughout Kansas City span the globe; from food-trucks to fine-dining, and backyard-barbecues to Brazilian-grilles.

    Food and Dining

    The best part of my college is their locations. At each campus, the near-by dining, grocery, and coffee shop options are fantastic. I drive past our downtown City Market, and it's usually worth stopping for a healthy snack before class.

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus, and have never seen the dorms. I will never have to live in the dorms, as I am an adult returning to college after graduating high school fourteen years ago. I gave it an average rating due to my lack of knowledge, but they may be stellar or steerage and I wouldn't know.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are up-to-date on their subject matter, and are all currently working in that field while teaching classes. The sessions only 8 weeks long, so you have to take your homework very seriously. Most classes are in a blended format, wherein you may only have one class each week for three hours, but you have an online lecture, as well as textbook reading and online posts.

    Tips for prospective students

    Talk to your advisers early and often; it's their job is to help you, and they LOVE their jobs. Get to know all of the online options by watching the tutorials and videos. If you want the best in education without all the frills and distractions, this is the place for you.

    There are cafeterias in the dorms, and a place on the first floor that serves different foods and drinks. They are also very good, although I am more of a home-eater. There are also dining places around the area that offer a great variety and different cultural tastes.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in the dorms, but I have friends who tell me that it is very nice and not annoying whatsoever. They have a free wifi-connection and a pool, and they have a great cafeteria, from what I hear.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are very into their learning, and they have pretty extensive backgrounds. They focus on what will take you to the future you want, and what things are important for you to know to get there, whether academically or in your career. For electrical engineering, for example, you are continuously lectured on the reading and you get more information in the lectures, which you apply to the lab you perform every week.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be aware of your finances. It is definitely not a cheap university, but it is more focused on your major, and will hold you to it. Try to visit the campus before to get a feel with it, and consider taking three classes per session for a discount.

    In three sentences

    The learning environment in DeVry has been one that has been quite exceptional and one that has given me the motivation to learn everything, not so I can only attain a degree, but because I will know everything once I enter the field. It is very clean and a small campus, but it offers more individualized support and concentration on EVERYONE'S learning. It has many resources available to its students, these include: the Electronic Lab (eLab), Computer Lab, Library with computers and major-concentrated books, and ASPIRE (to help with multiple issues).

    Tips for prospective students

    I would advise prospective students who attend courses online to get in the course early in the week and stay on top of the reading assignments. Keeping up with that is the most important when completing assignments. I would also advise them to pay attention to the various resources available within the course and ask questions when in doubt.

    In three sentences

    DeVry University is very helpful to its students. They offer various tools that are very helpful within the courses. I would have to give them a 9 on a scale of 1-10. They will help you to stay on track if you begin falling behind. The help is there, the student just has to ask and know where to look.

    This program is great for busy parents, returning students, professionals looking to improve or build upon thier skills, or anyone else that has the drive and determination to push themselves to succeed.

    Bang for the buck

    DeVry is a private (for profit) university, therefore it is a bit pricier(about $800 per unit), but there is 24 hour tech support, unlimited tutorial resources, an online resource library, Citrix lab where we can access all the required software at no cost (like Adobe Creative Suite), Microsoft Office Suite download, online books at no extra cost, job placement assistance (they place graduates with jobs in their fields within 6 months of graduating), transfer student scholarships, etc. Their course work is designed to prepare students for the new world economy. The last year has made me feel more prepared and confident in my abilities than I did after 3 years at UC Santa Barbara.

    Every session I have been pushed past my comfort zone but am constantly surprised with what I am capable of. In the majority of classes we have between 3 and 4 assignments per week which consists of 2 discussion threads with participation requirements, readings with assignments, a quiz and possible a lab assignment if a lab is included in the class. There is a grading rubric that must be followed. The professors follow the rubric to a tee, but it is an advantage to know exactly what they are looking for.

    Tips for prospective students

    To attend DeVry online you must be dedicated, highly motivated and have good self-discipline. It is a misconception that online classes are easier. In all actuality, it is quite the contrary. It is more convenient, though, and as a single mother of 3 children with a full-time job, convenience is my number one priority.

    In three sentences

    Attending DeVry University is the best decision I've made in my life because the staff is attentive, competent and truly invested in the success of the students.

    The only thing I have trouble with is the price. After already enrolled in classes at DeVry, I found it to be a lot cheaper if I had attended my local 4 year college and had hands on experience.
