Student and Parent Reviews

If you are a student, former student, faculty member or parent, please help guide other prospective students by sharing your personal experiences with this school. What is it really like to go to DePauw University?

Dec 14, 2015

DePauw is the most exciting place you could come right after high school. Don't get me wrong, academics are tough and we're nearly in the middle of nowhere. However, everyone gets along with everyone and all of the students and (most) faculty are extremely friendly. It's easy to get distracted here because there's always something going on, but if you really set your mind to it, you can handle a both an awesome social life and earn the grades you want. And we can't forget the DePauwties... We're the 13th best party school in the nation!
