I just finished my first year at DePauw and I absolutely loved every minute of it. I know DePauw would not be the perfect fit for everyone, so I will try to explain the campus and the atmosphere as best as I can. Greek life is huge at DePauw, but do not have that turn you away. Going into college I never thought that I would join a sorority. I pictured sororities in the stereotypical television depicted way and it is nothing like that at all! Trust me, give it a shot. ...

    A second home, the DePauw community is truly a family. We are friendly, super fun, and always up for a good party. DePauw has a Midwestern campus with smart, engaging professors.

    DePauw is a wonderful university filled with a diverse group of students, and faculty that care about students success. Professors as well as peers encourage each other to strive for the best, and nothing less. I would give DePauw a solid 9.5 out of 10.

    Good academics and wonderful professors provide a rigorous learning experience. Extremely expensive with little to no difference between it and other schools with the exception that it is private. Social life is a complete Greek system, out-casting those not in a fraternity or sorority, depressing individuality and creating pettiness and a judgmental, hostile environment with dangerous drinking pressures.

    Depauw University is a small, peaceful and beautiful campus located in the middle of rural Indiana. The small size also helps to create a close knit community amongst students. One key highlight is the academics and unparalleled access to your professors.

    DePauw is a very small and welcoming campus. The teachers are very educated and they are more than happy to help students outside of class. The education one gets here is amazing and gives us great opportunities after we graduate.

    Super good school academically. Super expensive as well. Students who are very invested in Majority Greek life can be very annoying. Majority of students go Greek. I'm an independent and I'm surviving so you'll be fine.

    DePauw University is a small liberal arts college and a music conservatory in the small town of Greencastle, Indiana. Though less than 2,300 students call DePauw their college, the alumni support is incredible and extremely helpful when it comes to looking for jobs. The first-year program at DePauw is one of the best parts of students' first year and students stay close friends with those from their mentor groups throughout their four years here.
