School Information
"Teaching and learning are our priorities at DePaul. That might seem obvious, but we're the largest private university whose faculty members' priority is teaching. We're also the nation's largest Catholic university — and we're committed to an educational experience that weaves together mind, place, people and heart. (...) "Academic Excellence: DePaul has more than 300 undergraduate majors and graduate programs, so chances are good we have what you’re looking for. Many of our professors work in Chicago as consultants, researchers and entrepreneurs, and incorporate their experiences in the classroom." The university has 21,922 students and a 15:1 student to faculty ratio. (Source: https://www.depaul.edu/about/Pages/default.aspx)
