Built for Engagement
DePauw is a fully residential liberal arts college, which means conversations spill over from the seminar table to the dining hall to the student lounge. Living here is part of what brings our community to life, and our campus - a beautiful collection of 36 major buildings on more than 695 acres - is what brings people together.
Located in Greencastle, Indiana, a 45-minute drive west of Indianapolis, our campus is also home to a 520-acre nature park - which includes at least 9 miles of trails - and Historic East College, built in 1877, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Nature Park
A short jog or walk from campus, the DePauw Nature Park consists of 520 acres of forest, fields, and an abandoned limestone quarry. Hikers and runners will find more than nine miles of trails, while scientists will find ample opportunities for biological research.
Sustainability at DePauw
DePauw has joined more than 575 colleges and universities who are pledging to neutralize the greenhouse gas emissions of their institutions and make environmental awareness a key component of campus life. The Office of Sustainability coordinates DePauw's sustainability efforts.
