Helping Students Find Their Gold Within

Gold Within is our commitment to each and every student. It starts with world-class academics, hands-on experience, and exceptional career (and life!) preparation. It includes close relationships with accomplished professors, connections to successful alumni mentors, and a level of personal attention to individual success you won’t find at a big university.

Bold, Gold, and Ready to Lead

DePauw combines robust comprehensive education with vast experiential opportunities to shape your student’s leadership skills.

DePauw is seventh in the nation for students studying abroad, and 84% participate in at least one internship. Every student also participates in a four-year professional pathway and two extended terms.

We’re so confident in each student’s success, we promise they’ll find that first job, get into graduate school, or discover a new exciting path within six months of graduation. If they don’t, we’ll help find that opportunity for them or allow them to hone their skills tuition-free.
