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

  • Wait, I'm Half Way Done?

    Laura Ledesma '17

    It didn’t really hit me until the other day that I’m officially half way done with my college career…whoa. It’s scary and crazy to think that just two years ago (today exactly) I was graduating high school. Everyone always tells you “these next 4 years are going to fly by” and although we’ve all experienced this reality as soon as high school... Read more.

  • I Use Evertrue, Do You?

    Rachel Hanebutt '15

    With another great DePauw Alumni Reunion Weekend in the books, it seems appropriate to highlight the most innovative way for DePauw students and alumni to stay connected: Evertrue.  DePauw's Evertrue app allows each alumni and student to create a profile and for contacts to be searched using a variety of filters. My experience with Evertrue... Read more.

  • Balancing Family & Distance

    Kaitlyn Groce ‘18

    Since this is my first year being away from my family, it is both difficult and amazing. Not only am I able to get space from my very loving family, but I am also forced to in a way, fend for myself. In college, you are on a different body clock than the rest of the world. We live in what I like to refer to as the "college bodily clock." I... Read more.

  • The Honor Scholar Experience

    Miranda Dafoe '18

    When I was looking at different programs of distinction at DePauw, I had a very difficult time deciding which one was the best fit for me. I ended up being accepted into three programs including Honor Scholar. “Hoscho” for short, is the most diverse of the programs of distinction. There is no specific major required nor was there a common trend in major selections. Upon acceptance into the program...

  • The Cloverdale Truck Stop

    Leeann Sausser'16

    Sometimes you just want to get off campus to eat but don’t have the forty minutes to drive to Plainfield. Other times you just want a good breakfast and the Hub’s brunch isn’t going to cut it.

    Let me introduce you to the Cloverdale Travel Plaza, or as my friends and I call it, “the truck stop down the road.” Right off of I-70, ten minutes from campus, sits an actual truck stop equipped with showers...

  • 4 Reasons Fall in The Castle Is The Absolute Best

    Laura Ledesma '17

    If I’m being biased, Fall is my favorite (and the best) season of the year. With the fashion, the spirit of Halloween, and movie marathons with hot chocolate, it just can’t get any better than that. Here’s why I love Fall at DePauw:

    Pumpkin Patches & Apple Picking. Greencastle is prime for pumpkin patches and apple orchards. There’s nothing better with getting a group of your friends to go pick out...

  • Mario Kart…Free Time Shenanigans

    Luke Bernardi'16

    As sad as this sounds, I think I have spent more hours playing Nintendo 64 with my friends when I’m not busy doing something productive. Lets just say it’s probably my favorite hobby to do in my free time…sitting on my butt and playing one of the oldest electronic game consoles that is. If I had to guess the number of times I’ve played Mario Kart since the beginning of my junior year last fall, it...

  • Spooky Fall Playlist

    Marian Hillebrand'16

    FALL IS HERE! It was sudden but inevitable, and I love it. It’s a beautiful time for many reasons (Halloween! Pumpkins! Hot coffee! Cool leaves!), but my favorite thing about it is the constant feeling of spookiness that fills the air.  Take a walk in the nature park, bring a sweater, and listen to this spooky playlist to get in the mood for the season.
