Each year members of the DePauw family open their homes to prospective students.  This is a great way to learn about DePauw without having to travel from home.  You will have a chance to hear about the experiences of alumni and other members of the DePauw family, talk with an admission counselor and meet other students from your area considering DePauw.  Join us for some light fare, beverages and great conversation.

As a student who has been admitted to DePauw University, you will receive an invitation to our Admitted Student Open House. The open houses are scheduled twice yearly, in the winter and in the spring. During the Admitted Student Open House you will be able to meet with staff and faculty members from across campus (housing, academic departments, financial aid, etc).  In addition to numerous information sessions, current students will be available to take you on tours through the campus facilities and discuss their experiences at DePauw. A detailed itinerary will be available closer to the date of the event.

We hope you and your family will join us on this very special day planned for students who have been admitted to DePauw and are considering enrollment.

Fall Fridays at DePauw  provide high school Seniors an opportunity to experience DePauw as a student. Prospective students will be paired with a current DePauw student for the day. With your student host you will attend classes, have lunch, tour campus and see the residence halls. With advance notice, the Office of Admission can arrange admission interviews, meetings with faculty members or coaches.

For parents and other guests joining us for Fall Fridays at DePauw, we will provide sessions to help you gain an understanding of DePauw’s admission requirements and the financial aid process. You will also learn more about academics and resources available to DePauw students, through the Hubbard Center for Student Engagement. 

Because we maintain a highly personalized program for each of our guests, attendance at Fall Fridays at DePauw is limited to 50 students per event. For this reason, reservations are limited to high school Seniors and are on a first-come, first-served basis. We look forward to you joining us for one of these special events.
