October 4, 2006
October 4, 2006, Greencastle, Ind. - DePauw University is among the "50 Best Colleges" featured in the October 2006 issue of CosmoGirl magazine. The list, created using baseline data provided by the Princeton Review, identifies America's top institutions of higher learning "based on what experts recommended as the best alla-round criteria for young women to look for in a school: their small class sizes, great job placement programs, prominent female faculty, strong women's sports teams, and more," CosmoGirl's editors write.

A number of other national publications and surveys have also given DePauw's academic programs and campus environment high marks.

DePauw is again among the The Best 361 Colleges in the new, 2007 guide, and historic East College is pictured on the cover of America's Best Value Colleges: 2007 Edition, which lists DePauw as one of 150 colleges offering excellent academics, generous financial aid packages and relatively low costs.
