Overall Rating

I transferred to DePaul from University of South Carolina. I'm from Michigan. I love DePaul because I feel like I have the best of both worlds - I enjoy the wonderful city of Chicago, while still reap the benefits of a tightly knit, intimate community of students. Living in Chicago opens a world of opportunity and experience, and DePaul faculty support your growth as a student and young adult.
