DePaul University Reviews
Great school. Living in the city is amazing and an awesome chance to get away from home and start building your own life. Chicago is an absolutely PHENOMENAL city. If you put in effort and socialize, join clubs, etc. you will have no problems making friends. Party scene is great to get that classic college experience. Live on campus all four years to get maximum social benefit! There is some great professors here who absolutely care about your success and well being, and small class sizes will assist with this.
DePaul University is amazing! The area and campus the university is located around are incredible. DePaul has a very diverse student body, a promising athletic department, great academics, and a wonderful Public Safety department. Overall, DePaul University is a great option for higher education in a world-class city and I think you should definitely consider it if you're looking for a good-sized, reputable school in a big city!
DePaul University is academically stimulating, socially enriching, and caters to support individuals of any background. The academics are enlightening and incorporates a healthy balance of neurological stimulation without being too challenging. Diversity is present, however, can be improved (as anywhere else). The Athletic facilities are impressive! The Professors are individually unique and most often offer guidance, whether academically or on a more personal level. DePaul offers a wide range of student related resources and services that can benefit one's overall experience. DePaul is a platform, what you do with it is up to you!
