My DePaul Experience
My DePaul experience can be summed up as unexpected. As in, when I started going to this school I certainly didn’t expect to be performing music in front of people - not once but three separate times. In fact, when I entered DePaul I didn’t think I would be making music at all. Where you decide to go college really can change the trajectory of your life. Whether that be the friends you make, the classes you take, or the paths you embark on, I feel like DePaul has influenced all of those things. Music is a big part of my life now and I’m not sure if it would be that way if I didn’t go to school here. The people I’ve met have allowed me to experience new things and have opened my mind to different ways of thinking that I believe have allowed me to become more diverse. Whether it be the way I dress, the way I talk, or the way I interact with people my development as a person is forever tied to my experiences at this university. Whether they’ve been bad or good I have dealt with things I wouldn’t change at all, because it has allowed me to grow into the person I need to be for what I want to do in the future, and thanks to what has happened to me here that will be a lot. I’m thankful for DePaul and their diverse student groups, organizations, and their location because I wouldn’t trade these experiences for anything, and I hope you experience life-changing moments of your own here.
