    It's a small community, so you make a ton of friends for life, and the professors that you have have the chance to get to know you personally.

    DePauw provides a lot of financial packages. Though the price tag of the education may be hefty, it is worth it in my opinion. We have a lot of great resources, like the new gym. Clubs and organizations have large budgets, and it is pretty easy to find free things on campus.

    DePauw is a private liberal arts college. It is very expensive. Without scholarships, tuition, room & board would be way too non-economical.
