Visit DePauw's Campus During 'Indiana Private College Week', July 25-29
July 19, 2011
July 19, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — Governor Mitch Daniels has declared July 25-29, 2011, as Indiana Private College Week. During this special week, all 31 private, nonprofit colleges and universities across the state -- including DePauw University -- are opening their campus doors to students, parents, and any others interested in the college selection process.
In his proclamation, Governor Daniels cites the productivity of Indiana’s independent sector of higher education -- which produces 35% of the state’s bachelor's degrees while enrolling only 20% of its college students -- as well as its higher graduation rates. He also cites the distinctive role the 31 campuses play in the advancement of Indiana, not only through high-quality education, but also economic, cultural and civic contributions to communities throughout the state.
This event is a first for the Independent Colleges of Indiana and its member campuses although similar weeks have been held in such states as Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota. Those visiting will get to experience firsthand the unique personality of each campus through tours, informational sessions, and conversations with students and staff.
To schedule a personal visit to DePauw, call toll-free (800) 447-2495.
A complete list of participating campuses, as well as their event schedules, is available here.
Visitors between the ages of 16 and 20 touring one or more ICI campuses during Private College Week will have the chance to enter a drawing for an Apple iPad. Entry forms and rules will be available at each campus.
