If visiting campus is the best way to get to know DePauw, a close second just might be hearing directly from our student bloggers.

  • Greekin’ Out: My Winter Term Experience in Greece

    Sarah Redman '18

    Six months ago I had no idea that I would have developed a love for olive oil and would have a stronger appreciation for the Byzantine Empire. The oldest building I had been into was maybe Abraham Lincoln’s childhood cabin in southern Indiana. However, this all changed last January. As you've probably heard, the Winter Term experience is...

  • The Truth about Dorm Life

    Rachel May ‘18

    We’ve all heard the horror stories. You come to college looking for the excitement and freedom everyone tells you about. You find what you’re looking for in one way or another because college is an exciting and freeing place (especially when you’re fresh out of high school). However, the luster of all that newness is dulled by the conditions... Read more.

  • DePauw’s International Community

    Ranjit Singh '18

    Every year, students at DePauw celebrate two iconic Indian festivals on campus: Diwali, the festival of lights, and Holi, the festival of colours. Coming to DePauw as a freshman, I wasn’t aware of the demographics of the international community we had here. When I arrived in August last year, I was surprised to see only a handful of fellow...

    Academic Resource Center

    Not every school that prospective students visit has a resource center like DePauw (just one reason we’re the best). At least someone, on every tour that I give, is amazed that the Academic Resource Center is a “thing.” With a year and a half of tours under my belt, I’ve come to realize that academics is often the most nerve wracking part of entering college, especially looking...

    Tom Chiarella

    The man is a writing genius. Not only is he fiction editor for Esquire magazine, he also has yet to give up on me as I attempt to write a story about talking birds… and let me tell you, that takes someone special. Chiarella’s articles are some of the most entertaining pieces of writing I have ever read, and never EVER have I met someone who was willing to walk from our very own DePauw...

  • A Year Has Come and Gone

    Bronson Roseboro ‘19

    The spring semester is winding down, and my first year at DePauw is coming to a close. Every day, I wake up and realize just how few days are left before I officially complete my first year, and how much time has come and gone. It doesn’t feel like I moved in some eight months ago. It doesn’t feel like I’ve taken eight amazing classes this past year. It doesn’t feel like I’ve read the amount of interesting...

  • A Reflection On My First-Year Experience

    Katherine Deighan ‘19

    Moving my bags with the help of my parents, I was overcome by a multitude of conflicting emotions as I was about to begin this new chapter in my life. As I walked into Humbert 219, I was immediately greeted with an embrace from my roommate; this comforting act erased all my fears and unanswered questions about this new home of my mine.

    This year has been an adventure I had never experienced. I thought...

  • DePauw’s Nature Park

    Rachel May ‘18

    A few weeks ago, my best friend and I went for a walk at DePauw’s Nature Park. We had such an amazing time that we found ourselves wondering why we don’t take advantage of this beautiful place that’s so close to campus more often!

    DePauw’s Nature Park is an old limestone quarry surrounded by ten miles of trails open to the public. Not only is the nature park a place where students can hike, run and...
