    I love DePaul. The location of the two main campuses are perfect. The professors are understanding and helpful. Everything about the university is amazing, in my opinion.

    I personally love DePaul, but I would say it isn't for everyone. If you aren't willing to break your comfort zone you will have trouble meeting friends. My best advice is to be personable and outgoing and prop your door open! Chicago is seriously the greatest city in the world and DePaul really uses it as part of the classroom. They give you free tickets to all sports-- it's a shame how few people take advantage of it. My biggest knock is the lack of school spirit here, but I'm working on changing that.

    This actually is biased on my part. Because of my loaded schedule, and the unfortunate instance of having roommates my freshman and sophomore year that are never home, I have very little to no social life. In actuality, though, DePaul has been ranked consistently high on the Nation's Happiest Students list, if not ranked #1. DePaul has a good amount of extra-curriculars (over 300), so you can find something to do (which I recommend doing). In addition, DePaul is located in the city, which means there are endless possibilities in finding something to do. The people are friendly for the most part as well. The average person should have no trouble meeting new people.

    Given that DePaul is located in Chicago, there's always something to do. DePaul's Lincoln Park Campus is conveniently located by the beach, the zoo, and of course, downtown Chicago. Within a matter of minutes you can be at Millenium Park, Water Tower Place, the Art Institute, Zoo, or beach. Besides there being many things to do in Chicago, I also happen to be involved in campus through clubs, which gives me many more things which I can do. The staff is very friendly, and there are many things available at DePaul, most free! I can honestly say I have made a good choice by having had chosen to go to DePaul.
