Interested in sustainability? Want to help on the campus farm? DePauw's Eco-Reps program is open to first-year students who want to develop leadership skills and manage sustainability projects like Community Bikes, recycling, the campus farm, and more. Contact Anthony Baratta at firstname.lastname@example.org in the Office of Sustainability if you are interested.
DePauw is pleased to introduce LEAP (Learning Through Experiential Applications). This new, exciting program offers you rewards for participating in things that will help you prepare for life after DePauw. Each term, you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities. Each activity will earn reward points. Once you have reached the point level for your class year, you will earn rewards and an entry in an end of year drawing for prizes. These activities are designed to help you become better prepared for either a job or graduate school once you leave DePauw. Click here for more information.
Sign up for the First-Year Service Plunge, an annual opportunity for first-year students to join their classmates and the Greencastle community in a day of service and learning. Learn more here.
