Starting Your DePauw Story

Talented faculty and ambitious students. Put them on a picturesque campus in the heart of Indiana where they run into each other — a lot — and you get DePauw.

It’s the combination of the intellectual challenge of DePauw’s academic life with our vibrant campus culture that gives students the tools and confidence to succeed. Rooted in our own brand of the liberal arts, DePauw students become agile thinkers and problem solvers. They jump from a  history course to a biology lab or a course in literature. They know that the most pressing challenges of the day can be solved only with the perspective of multiple disciplines. And, of course, they’re also engaged with those around them. Shy students become outspoken. Passionate ones learn to lead in new ways. The campus culture depends on — thrives on — the energy of its students. It starts in the classroom, but the full strength of DePauw is found in how you draw inspiration, strength and support from new experiences and the people that surround you. Imagine where your DePauw story could take you.
