    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.

    You definitely get the bang for your buck. You get quality education, and professors who know you by first name. You work hard , and it will most definitely pay off.

    It depends. The school fee is at times a bit on the higher side, but the school's academics are excellent as well as the opportunities to network with successful alumni's. DPU also hosts its fair share of events like hosting influential talkers and putting on social events.

    DePauw is not the most affordable school for everyone. However, what the money goes to is so beneficial and inevitably comes back to the student in some way, shape, or form. They really try to work with students individually to make it financially more affordable. They have so many opportunities for scholarship, including for winter term trips. No matter how much you pay to go here you receive a top notch education from an increasingly popular liberal arts university that would look good on any job application. On top of it all there are changes coming to the campus in the next few years that are only going to make the expense more worth it.
