DePaul offers good programs for Computer Science. The quarter system allows me to take more courses during the year. And I like that I can join a variety of organizations that let me be culturally and socially active.

I chose DePaul because of the Predictive Analytics course being offered. Many universities were not offering this course and big data is something I’m really interested in. The events for international students have made me feel connected to the university and to Chicago, and I have been able to adjust easily.

DePaul made me feel like I’m home. The school played the family role and provided all the support and help I needed. I also like that we learn how to give back to communities... It’s not only about you – it’s about all of us.

Voices of Excitement and Experience

No one is better qualified to speak about the DePaul University academic experience than the students who studied here and the professionals who teach here.

"I find experiences with other cultures to be rewarding. I feel like they bring experiences and culture I don't have, and to be able to exchange what I know with them enriches my life and makes me a better person."

"The thing I like most about DePaul I'd have to say is community. It's very warm, very welcoming. There's a lot of diversity at DePaul and you're guaranteed to make friends if you come here."

"You always feel comfortable here and DePaul helped me as well to feel more comfortable and to help me be a little part of the city."
