Just got back from a visit to DePaul. My son had a list of criteria when applying to schools, and DePaul ticked off all the boxes, so he applied, but we knew nothing much about it. Well, he has been accepted with a decent merit scholarship, so we went for a visit last week. We both liked it a lot, and it is now on the short list.
We are from New York State, and were wondering what it is like for students who come from a distance since it seems like a lot of people are from Illinois/Indiana/Wisconsin. Do people go away for the weekends a lot? Is there much school spirit? I don’t necessarily mean sports, which he doesn’t really like, but lots of active clubs, hanging out with other students, etc.
He is interested in the Geography Department and heard lots of great things about it when we were there, but haven’t met any students in that department. We liked that they have a 5 year BA/MA option. Any Geography majors out there?
