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.

    I don't regret my decision to attend DePaul. It's the best experience in my life so far. I know by the time I graduate, I will have gained valuable connections, relevant education, and, equally important, best friends that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

    DePaul is probably one of the most accepting religious schools that I have encountered. As a Catholic institution, they not only accept but accommodate to the religious practices of others and give them any and all resources necessary for worship and practice, and they also accept people who have no faith. DePaul is a very welcoming community and no matter who you are you will be able to find your fit.

    The campus is big, and all the staff and students are friendly. Classroom sizes are a little larger. I love it there!

    DePaul has many great opportunities compared to other colleges. Being in the city and having many of the alumni work in the city gives the school and its current students many connections. DePaul also has a great calendar system where the students get a full month's break from Thanksgiving until January, yet the courses still cover all the information needed.

    This college is definitely worth the investment. Even though it is a private university and has a high tuition cost, the school offers a variety of renewable scholarships and grant. And the most important part is that after attending the school there will definitely be a job waiting for you upon graduation.

    DePaul University has been spectacular with helping me enroll and has a wide variety of majors that will interest just about anybody. The curriculum for most of - if not all - the majors satisfy a number of requirements for entry into post graduate schools (i.e. Medical School). DePaul also has counselors that can help students with any problem.
