What It Means To Be Gold Within

Today’s employers seek those who can lead at any level of an organization, who can communicate, collaborate, analyze, innovate and adapt. These “leadership arts” are hallmarks of DePauw's gold-standard arts and sciences education. It includes close relationships with professors, hands-on experiential learning, connections to successful alumni, and a level of personal attention not possible at a big university. And it prepares you not only for your first job, but your entire career.
