First Impressions

LPCFor some reason, DePaul was always a top contender for the college I would eventually attend. I think it goes back to middle school when I was first exposed to the school at a UIC versus DePaul basketball game. Years later, I got a first-hand look at the campus when I signed up for a prospective student visit day. I took quite a few tours, but there is one particular moment I remember the most. This visit had to be in the spring because all I remember is strolling through DePaul’s Lincoln Park campus with the sun shining bright and the trees blossoming on Sheffield. I was taken aback by such an attractive environment, especially on a college campus in Chicago. 

Aside from the campus eye candy, I remember my first impressions of the Loop campus ’ DePaul Center. The contrast between the two campuses was stark. On one hand, there is subtlety and community, and then there is formal and professional. As an incoming accounting major, I saw the facilities of the business school as something that would truly prepare me for a career. I noticed the classroom sizes were smaller than a typical five hundred-student lecture hall, thus making DePaul’s curriculum more inviting and engaging. All these factors aligned together just right because it did not take much convincing for me to enroll a few months later. I hope others can experience the visit days as I have. If this is not possible due to snow or rain, there are surely many other attributes to DePaul that will entice.
