Jazzkia Jones, SUMMER AT DEPAUW STUDENT STAFF

Why DePauw: As a first-generation college student, DePauw was a huge step for me and my family. During my senior year of high school, I applied to over 16 colleges and universities all out of the state of Texas. My original goal was to get an athletic scholarship in Track and Field, however, DePauw changed my mind. After visiting the campus, attending classes in a few academic building, and meeting amazing DePauw students, I was proud to call Greencastle, IN my new home. Now, four years later, with the help of my friends, the financial aid office, and my professors, I successfully graduated & will truly miss Old DePauw!
