      I will be attending DePauw University next fall and I am more than excited about the opportunities it has to offer. It will allow me to pursue all my career and extracurricular interests, along with being a very high academic school. I know I will have a ton of fun the next four years! It offers extremely good study abroad program opportunities and I cannot wait to go on one. The academics are very very good and professors work very well with students. Through the smaller class sizes, students get to know one another very well and get to also know the professors on a more personal basis.

      DePauw is the only school that will care. That sounds cold, but from DePauw I've received countless hand written post cards from admin, free gifts for committing, and so much help trying to find a place to fit in. It's campus is absolutely beautiful as well and the food is amazing!
