What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
By far the most diverse private school I've ever encountered, I love it. Staff is always easily approachable! Extremely worth every cent I pay.
Cynthia from Chicago, IL
DePaul is full of opportunities but is also geared towards challenging their students. It is a mission-based institution that strives to carry that mission out every day. It is place to learn and grow both as a student and an individual.
