The nonconformists

Stories by Mary Dieter
They march to a different drummer. Think outside the box. Color outside the lines.


It’s true that nonconformists are common enough to inspire clichés. But here’s the thing: No two are alike. That’s certainly the case of the nonconformists who have passed through DePauw University. Some have experienced something unexpected, causing them to veer from their expected path. Others have figured out ways to meld their disparate interests into satisfying lives. Still others just happen to be quirky.

The uncommonly successful people we feature in these pages have pursued success on their own terms. Each has chosen a path less traveled. And that has made all the difference.
