I love how accessible and available anything and anyone is when you need it most. The classes are smaller than normal, which allows you to create relationships with your professors.
Something to be aware of is the trimester system; its three-ten week systems, instead of two-fourteen week systems. It threw me off at first, not having the same days off as all my friends, but you get used to it.
So far I have liked that DePaul does to some extent attempt to cater to most of their student's interests and needs despite the vast differences among students.
I think though DePaul University does try to provide for students, they don't do enough work to promote and ensure that every student is aware of the resources and options that are available to them.
DePaul University is perfect for those who are looking to be fully immersed in an urban environment while pursuing higher education. Classes are interesting and the professors actually care about their students. There are many opportunities to be involved outside of academics like clubs and sports.
DePaul is an inclusive school. Their Criminology program is fairly new, but I've had a wonderful experience in the program. All the professors I have had have been extremely helpful in helping me succeed. At first, I thought that it would be difficult to find my classes, but it has been very easy to navigate both campuses. If you're considering DePaul, I recommend attending their welcome week. They host this a week before the school year starts and it's a great way to learn your way around campus and make friends.
I'm currently in the honors program, and something that I did not like was the times they planned certain events. Usually, they didn't fit in with my schedule, so I rarely attend any honors events.
DePaul is a school with a unique quarter system. Each quarter goes by quickly, but the professors always make the most of each class. The professors care about the well-being of students and are often very engaging. The campus in Lincoln Park has a comfortable atmosphere and is a short train ride into the city. There are many mini-events that are hosted each quarter that provide opportunities to meet new people and experience something new.
The food in the student center dining hall is not the best, but it is not terrible. On the plus side, there are a lot of different choices and places you can use your meal swipe.
Everyone there is really generous and welcoming.
The lack of diversity.
