DePaul was a great school for Undergrad and now I am returning for Grad school. Professors are great, bringing real life experience from their professional jobs. Being in the heart of the city is the best selling point!
My undergraduate degree experience at DePaul University was extremely rewarding. The School for New Learning Program enabled me to guide my degree journey by applying my personal and career experiences for course credit. Honestly, my experience was so positive that I do not believe any changes need to be made by DePaul University.
