Campus Life

Leadership through the liberal arts since 1837

Experience college life in high definition on DePauw’s very involved and interconnected campus. What’s in store for your four years? Discover friendships that last in our close-knit campus housing, champion a cause in a student organization, go Greek to build a stronger local community and so much more. 

Activities and Organizations

The foundation of every DePauw story lies in a connective community of peers and empowering faculty who push you to engage and lead. With more than 100 clubs and organizations on campus plus a continuous calendar of Campus Life activities, there is no shortage of opportunity to get involved.

If you don’t find the group you are looking for, create your own!

Get connected

Diversity and Inclusion

Creating a diverse and inclusive community calls on an entire campus–student, faculty and staff–to shape that journey. At DePauw, students, faculty, and staff are shaping dialogue centered in the belief that only by understanding and embracing those whose life experiences are different than one's own can a community truly meet its aspirations.

Living on Campus

DePauw is a fully immersive academic and residential experience, meaning students learn and live with each other during all four years of college. Students grow through the unique experience of integrating their in-class learning with out-of-class activities, for a robust, co-curricular experience.

There are a variety of student residences on campus.

Athletics and Wellness

Wellness is the pursuit of balance in the seven dimensions of wellness. Each dimension contributes to our own sense of wellness or quality of life, and each affects and overlaps the others. Many people think about "wellness" in terms of physical health only. Wellness, however, is much more than physical health. Wellness is a full integration of physical, mental and spiritual well-being. It is a complex interaction that leads to quality of life. We are all #TeamDePauw.

Greek Life

Greek life at DePauw is as distinct and historical as the rest of the campus. Nearly 70% of DePauw students join one of 24 Greek-lettered organizations, including a National Greek Honor Society. Become part of a family with a shared commitment to serving the campus and the community.
