    Remember you do live in the city so stay vigilant. Be very outgoing and talkative if you want to make connections, as this is a big commuter school.

    PLEASE know that this school will not give you a college experience. If you truly are ready to move to a big city and live like a 25 year old, then go ahead, but it is a very hard school to adjust to at 18 from far away.

    DePaul is a big college with lots of students so the best way to enjoy the full college experience is to join a club that interests you. Stay involved and you will grow to love DePaul. Participate in class, get to know your professor, and build a relationship with them..they will be a great help in the future!
