A necessary part of any healthy college experience is having an environment that is conducive to learning and living. Because we value our students' rights to have a place to study, sleep, relax and socialize, we work to help students build strong residence communities. Building positive living and learning communities means that we hire and train excellent student leaders to assist students in our halls; maintain clean, safe and secure physical environments; continue to make physical improvements to our residence facilities; provide social activities and shared governance opportunities through the Organization of Resident Students (ORS); and provide quality services to our residents through direct contact with professional staff members.
Our residential system at DePauw includes residence halls, Rector Village suites, duplexes, University-owned apartments and houses and Greek houses. All first-year students live in the residence halls. Sophomores are eligible to live in the residence halls or Greek houses and juniors and seniors are eligible to live in all housing options. The residence halls are divided into the North Quad and the South Quad. The South Quad residence halls include Bishop Roberts, College Street, Hogate, Humbert and Longden Halls. The North Quad residence halls include Anderson Street, Bloomington Street, Lucy Rowland, Mason, and Senior Halls as well as Rector Village. We are proud of all of our residential communities and believe that each offers an excellent environment in which to live, learn and grow.
In our communities, residents have the opportunity to become involved in a variety of activities, including the Organization of Resident Students (ORS), intramural athletics and a variety of social and personal development programs that are planned by the Campus Living and Community Development staff and ORS. First-Year Resident Assistants and Community Resource Assistants are upper-class student leaders who live in the residence halls and University Owned Apartments and Houses (UOAH); these students are available to assist you and meet your needs. We encourage you to utilize their support and provide them with input on how we can continue to improve our residential communities in order to better meet the needs of our students.
The residential communities at DePauw are intended to be far more than just places to eat and sleep. However, how much you gain from the opportunities available is largely up to you. Your relationships with your community members and activities in the halls can provide you with some of the most significant parts of your collegiate experience.
Fraternities and Sororities
In addition to providing housing for many DePauw students, fraternities and sororities are based upon a foundation that encourages an atmosphere of learning, social responsibility and constructive development for members.
While fraternities and sororities are private, independent units, Greek Life Coordinators work with students in Greek organizations. Greek Life Coordinators have direct contact with each fraternity and sorority chapter through the undergraduate officers, advisers, house corporations and house directors who encourage high standards of group living and supervise domestic affairs of the chapter houses.
The rush/recruitment process occurs after Winter Term in late January, and rules governing such are published each year by the respective governing association--the women's Panhellenic Council and the men's Interfraternity Council.
Three historically African-American sororities and one historically African-American fraternity are currently recognized by the University. They are active members of the Greek community and belong to the National Panhellenic Council. In addition, two historically Latina sororities are active on campus and are members of the Multicultural Greek Council. Recruitment is done on an individual chapter basis.
DePauw's sororities include:
- Alpha Chi Omega
- Alpha Kappa Alpha
- Alpha Phi
- Delta Gamma
- Delta Sigma Theta
- Kappa Alpha Theta
- Kappa Kappa Gamma
- Omega Phi Beta
- Pi Beta Phi
- Psi Lambda Xi
- Sigma Lambda Gamma
- Zeta Phi Beta
DePauw's fraternities include:
- Alpha Phi Alpha
- Alpha Tau Omega

The First-Year Experience (FYE) program at DePauw University aims to provide first-year students a challenging yet supportive experience that inspires self-discovery and an active engagement with the learning and growth opportunities available to them as they transition and integrate into the DePauw community. There are two main components of the First-Year Experience program, the First-Year Seminar and the Mentor program.
During their first semester at DePauw, students enroll in a seminar that counts as a full academic credit. Due to the small class size (approximately 15 students), the faculty instructor has the ability to facilitate a comfortable and engaging learning environment that promotes participation from all students. The goal of this course is to encourage an effective transition from a traditional high-school classroom to the academc rigors of DePauw. The faculty member also serves as the first-year student's academic advisor until the student has decided on a major.
The second component of the First-Year Experience program is the Mentor Program. Each first-year seminar is assigned an upper-class mentor who spends time with the students outside of the classroom. Mentors are carefully selected and specially trained to help first-year students make a smooth transition into the DePauw community. Mentors serve as excellent resources for first-year students as they begin navigating their way through the university. These student leaders engage their mentor groups in team building activities that allow for the group to become close and serve as a source of support for one another. Mentors strive to promote intellectual, social, and personal development of first-year students during their entire first year here at DePauw.
The convocation series at DePauw brings to campus nationally and internationally recognized public figures, scholars, government leaders, authors, artists and scientists. In addition to large public lectures, convocation speakers are available to students in question-and-answer sessions and other informal occasions.
The Ubben Lecture Series has brought distinguished individuals to the DePauw University campus since 1986. Guests have included former U.S. President Bill Clinton, former Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev, former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, former British Prime Ministers Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher and John Major, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, General Colin Powell, Mike Krzyzewski, Spike Lee and former South African President F.W. de Klerk. Made possible by the generosity of Timothy H. and Sharon (Williams ’58) Ubben ’58, the Series presents between two and five Ubben Lectures each academic year. For additional information, see "http://www.depauw.edu/about/history-traditions/ubben-lecture-series/".
The purpose of the convocation program is to introduce students first-hand to a wide range of thought and artistry presented by the world's opinion makers and creative artists.
Music on Campus
The influence of DePauw's School of Music spreads far beyond those who major in music performance, education, music-business or musical arts. Professional and student groups present more than 150 performances per year.
Musical Groups (These groups are not limited to music majors.)
- Brass, String, Woodwind, and Percussion and Chamber Ensembles
- Chamber Singers
- DePauw Cappella
- Gospel Choir
- Jazz Combos
- Jazz Ensemble
- Opera/Musical Theatre
- Tiger Pep Band
- University Band
- University Chorus
- University Orchestra
The University actively encourages participation in extracurricular activities that complement the classroom experience. There are plenty of opportunities at DePauw to participate in community service, be involved in the leadership of an organization or just be entertained.
How can students get involved in these activities or organizations? One of the best ways is to attend the Campus Activities & Community Service Fair, which is usually held at the end of Orientation Week. Although it takes place during Orientation, the Fair is designed to let all DePauw students know about the different clubs and organizations available and how students can get involved.
In addition to theCampus Activities & Community Service Fair, another way for students to get information is to ask. Talking to professors who seem to have interests similar to individual students, visiting the Campus Activities Office, going to the Office of Academic Affairs, Student Life Office or any other University office, talking to resident assistants, mentors or other students are all excellent ways to get information about what is going on at DePauw.
Finally, students should read signs and ads posted on bulletin boards; in The DePauw student newspaper; in the DePauw Weekly, an electronic newsletter; and check out information on DePauw's web site in the University Calendar. These places contain a wealth of information on things to do at DePauw.
Clubs, Organizations and Honoraries
DePauw's recognized student organizations are listed at http://www.depauw.edu/studentlife/campus-activities-clubs/student-clubs-groups/. They are open to all eligible students. The University, through DePauw Student Government, recognizes student organizations. Faculty or staff advisors are required for all student organizations. If students have an interest that doesn't seem to be represented by an established group, they should contact the Campus Activities Office to start a new group at campusactivities @depauw.edu.
DePauw University is committed to providing a wide range of varsity and intramural athletics as part of a well-rounded liberal arts education.

DPU Athletic Code of Conduct
As athletes and coaches at DePauw University, we recognize that it is an honor and privilege to represent the entire community. As campus leaders, we acknowledge and accept responsibility for our actions as they may impact the athletic program and the University community. It is expected that all student-athletes and coaches follow the policies set forth by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the North Coast Athletic Conference, DePauw University and the athletic department. Failure to do so may result in loss of competition, loss of captaincy or suspension from an athletic team.
DePauw student-athletes and coaches do not condone the illegal or irresponsible use of alcohol or drugs. It is also expected that all student-athletes and coaches demonstrate respect through actions and attitudes with regard to academic integrity, the display of good sportsmanship, prevention of hazing and tolerance of others. The athletic department is committed to providing educational opportunities and support to encourage responsible behavior for all members of the DePauw athletic community.

The eligibility requirements for student activities apply equally to intercollegiate athletics. All students must carry a minimum of three courses. A second semester senior making normal progress toward a degree and not needing the full three courses to graduate is an exception.
The Faculty Athletic Board Committee is the final authority to determine the eligibility of students for athletic teams. Complete eligibility requirements can be found in the Student Handbook.

Student Academic Support Services brings together four important service areas that share the goal of helping students achieve academic success: Academic Support Services, Academic Resource Center, First-Year Programs and Career Services.
The Office of Academic Programs monitors the academic progress of students at DePauw. Through an early alert system and midterm grades, it attempts to identify students who might be having academic difficulty and provide or arrange for appropriate, timely academic support. The office also coordinates efforts to help students who have been placed on academic probation. Such assistance may include tutorial services offered by the Academic Resource Center, individually arranged tutorials and learning skills workshops. Also, students on academic probation are assigned a mentor who meets with them throughout the semester to discuss their progress toward improved academic performance.
The director of Student Academic Support Services serves as the University's coordinator for the Americans with Disabilities Act. Students who have disabilities that may require accommodations meet with the ADA coordinator to review relevant documentation and formulate a program of accommodations and support.
Student Academic Support Services also offers or participates in a number of programs designed to help students adjust to college, including the DePauw Institute, a week-long pre-orientation program for selected students, which exposes them to the academic and social challenges they may face in college and acquaints them with the support services that will help them meet those challenges.
Academic Resource Center
The Academic Resource Center is composed of four support services, three of which are associated with the University's competence program. The Writing, Quantitative Reasoning and Speaking and Listening centers provide assistance to students in courses throughout the DePauw curriculum, not just W, Q and S courses. Trained student consultants staff the centers during afternoon and evening hours. Each center has a faculty director, who offers a training course for consultants and meets with students to develop appropriate assistance strategies.
The Academic Support Office in the ARC offers learning skills workshops, as well as individual consultations, on such topics as reading, listening, note taking, time management, motivation and test taking.
