A student said about: After leaving campus, to what extent is it a place where you can flourish/thrive?

As previously mentioned, I do not feel a strong connection with the students at DePauw and therefore do not feel that I would thrive

A student said about: I believe I will be happy at this school.

While I loved the school, I just didn't relate particularly well with the other students which I believe would preclude a terrific college experience

I think I might have too much fun with a lack of a strong work ethic among students

Making friends would not be that hard but I would not want to join a fraternity which I feel would therefore exclude me from many social opportunities and a dominant facet of life at DePauw

A student said about: I believe I can connect with the faculty or other staff.

I talked for a while with both Professor Hazel and Professor Barros and they both seemed to really like the school, want to help their students, and they were engaging and relatable

I did not enjoy the "work hard play hard" mentality of nearly all students which suggested to me a lack of academic motivation
