Washington Post Calls DePauw "A Hidden Gem"

April 1, 2003

April 1, 2003, Greencastle, Ind. - A year ago, the Washington Post'sJay Mathews asked high school teachers and counselors "to help me compile a list of colleges and universities that deserve bigger reputations. I called them the hidden gems, the lesser known jewels, the wallflower colleges that students fall in love with only after they get to know them." Today, Mathews has published his list of 100 "Colleges Worth Considering," one of which is DePauw University.

Mathews, author of the book Harvard Schmarvard: Getting Beyond the Ivy League to the College That Is Best for You, notes, "The beautiful campus and long tradition of excellence draw families to the school. It has a Winter Term, a month between semesters for students to get experience they can't get in the classroom."

The Post writer stresses that his list is an "informal and unscientific survey." You can access the complete story at the newspaper's Web site by clicking here.

DePauw is ranked, for a third consecutive year, in the top tier of national liberal arts colleges by U.S. News & World Report. Read more about that by clicking here.
