We shared many laughs, stories and created new inside jokes. Having my mom in Chicago made me realize that I have been fortunate enough to be studying in the City of Chicago. It is such a beautiful and wonderful city and now it hit me that I can call it my home away from home (Puerto Rico).
Summer weather is in full swing! If you happen to fall upon a study break, DePaul provides everything you need for enjoying a sunny day to its fullest. For instance, did you know…
…you can rent bikes (and more) from the Ray?
…about DePaul’s many green spaces?
…you’re just 0.9 miles from the expansive, exotic gardens (palm trees included!) of the LP Conservatory?
Summer is nearly here so I have a whole mess of plans to figure out before the middle of June!
So for the month of May, I have been on this “getting healthy” kick in which I do something healthy and new for each week. Being a Health Sciences major, you can do a lot of things in your home or even on campus in order to get fit. Something as simple as walking around campus can get you started on your own “Get Healthy” kick. These are just a few of the ideas that I came up with while being a student at DePaul.
Last week DePaul, along with the city of Chicago, announced plans for a new stadium that has many students and alumni extremely excited.
Because I am not very good at volleyball, I enjoy watching my friends play than actually playing.
Chicago company Dabble offers students of all kinds to take classes on just about anything you can think of.
It's time for my last Introduction to Performance production at TTS. Got me thinkin' bout what I've gleaned from the experience. Check it out!
Although DePaul is the largest Catholic university in the country, there is an outstanding Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) program that DePaul offers.
As the quarter winds down, and senioritis starts to settle in, it is one of my most greatest pleasures to pass down some of my favorite resources here on campus. Throughout my four years here at DePaul, I have utilize some of the most important offices on campus and now, as incoming freshman or current students, I would like to pass along that information to you!
One of the classes I am taking this quarter is Bird Study.
So you got admitted to DePaul University, now what? Besides graduating from high school… The next step is to take the famous placement tests! Read below to understand the placement process and hopefully you will see that it does not have to be so stressful.
Vincentian Service Day was a great day for the university to come together and serve the community just like St. Vincent would have wanted us to.
I'm a newbie to the internship game, but my internship is going really well so far!
Chicago is all about the hustle and bustle. This weekend I decided to go up to Madison and enjoy a weekend outside the city.
Now that the weather is finally starting to turn nice, it can be very easy to find different activities to do around campus or, it can be very difficult. I would say, about half of my friends are always on some new and exciting adventure while the other half are always asking about what is there to do in Chicago when its warm outside. For someone who is not originally from here, it can be very easy to find something new to do every spring/summer but for others, it is not the easiest task.
DePaul University offers many resources to their students, but it is up to them to take advantage of those. And if that did not inspire you to make the first approach, then think, you are paying for it ;)
As we all know (or maybe not!), DePaul is on the quarter system. So instead of two 15 week semesters, we have three 10 week quarters. This means that we do not get done with school until sometime in June. This leads to a lot of 'spring fever' for DePaul students. ESPECIALLY since warm weather in Chicago is second-to-none.
Musical Theatre Collaborative (MTC) is starting back up this quarter and it's gonna be great.
This may make me really lame, but I get so excited every quarter when the new course catalog comes out and it's time to pick classes for the following quarter.
Week five of every quarter is generally midterms week. It just happened that the weather was the nicest it has been yet this past weekend, the weekend before midterms. Spring quarter is tough for me because the weather is a huge distraction, and this weekend made that pretty clear.
DePaul University’s Theater School will finally have a new home. Located in the Lincoln Park Campus, the 69 million dollar project will open in the Fall Quarter of 2013.
As one of the assignments for my Peace, Justice, and Conflict studies class we went to see the play “Dead Man Walking.”
