I am on my second semester of my junior year at DeSales University. When I toured and first arrived at the college, I was blown away by the film program and knew that I wanted to go here. Upon my decision to go here, I have learned so much, grew as a person, made many new friends, befriended some professors and made some great films. My experience overall has been positive, but it's not perfect.
-Smaller school, you could virtually know everyone
-Good variety in course selection
-Great option for Theater, Film, Dance and Nursing majors
-Get to use film equipment right away
-Always film sets going on
-Not much of an emphasis on what comes after college in the film major
-Holds most classes online with a few in person and charge full tuition
-Overly strict COVID regulations and wants to limit social interaction, but wants things to be the same
Overall, my problems are with how some things are handled in my major and how COVID was/is being handled.
The school has a very welcoming and outgoing personality. Everyone at the school takes great pride in their actions and work. The students are well-rounded and inviting. The faculty have a doors open policy to their students. The campus is absolutely beautiful and spacious. There are a multitude of safety procedures and prevention techniques/programs for everyone on campus.
A very beautiful campus with great professors. The student population is a nice blend of nationalities and all respect each other's differences. I do not have many complaints about the University but wish that there were more to do in the surrounding area. This of course, is no reflection on the school. I've had a good experience thus far.
DeSales University offers a great nursing and biological science program, as well as a excellent theater program. However other interests are met with somewhat mediocre standards. The student life is great and very accepting, however sports are not pushed too hard. This creates a more enjoyable and relaxed playing and not so competitive.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for DeSales University is 76%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Chose a school that is willing to go out of their way to make you happy. You will know once you step onto a campus if that school is one you want to be enrolled in.
One of the best schools to go to in the United States.
DeSales University has numerous activities going on during each week and sometimes each day that allows students to interact with one another. These activities are in a wide range so that each student will enjoy them and will also help them learn things in new ways. This school has a fun way of getting students to interact with one another.
Small class sizes for most courses in one's major.
I wish i would have known about the lack of off campus housing since the only option is to be in the less fortunate area of bethlehem.
Almost any type of person can attend this school as long as they are not snobby or accepting of others.
DeSales offers so much for every type of person, but you must be open and willing to embrace it. It facilitates and promotes ACTIVE learning. It is a two way street at DeSales, so any student focused solely on being a passive body not willing to fully engage themselves academically and get everything they can out of their college experience should NOT go to DeSales University.
I think the worst thing about DeSales is something that i feel they have been trying to work on through the past few years. I believe that the lack fo diversity at DeSales Restricts its ability to become a Top top university. By bringin in more diversity the dynamic of the school would greatly change and most likely benefit everyone it touches.
DeSales is most known for the Phasician's Assistant program.
It's a famous school for Greek life. Students party a lot every week, and also study a lot during the day.
The most popular student activities on campus are SNL or Student Night Life which organizes events throughout the year for students to be at. Campus Ministry and choir are also big groups on campus. Athletics are also an important aspect of DeSales.
Academics at DePauw are challenging, much more so than non-students want to believe, yet incredibly rewarding. The work load gets heavier as you get older and into more advanced courses. Although there are times when I am stressed beyond belief, DePauw does a thorough job of preparing students for whatever their next step is, whether it be graduate school, or accepting a new job. As a psychology major, ny favorite classes have been my psychology courses, particularly the classes with an emphasis on childhood development and personality. The psych department offers a rigorous program for students, particularly seniors, who complete a senior thesis and comprehensive examination before graduating. The department as a national reputation of producing psychology students that do very well on the GRE psychology section test because of our rigorous senior schedule. Aside from psychology courses, I have taken both Spanish and Arabic,courses in biology, communications, political science, history, literature, creative writing, and women's studies. I also took an art history class freshman year, which I loved and learned a lot in. When I studied abroad, I went to several museums and really enjoyed being able to recognize the art and know a little bit about some of the pieces thanks to that art history class 3 years ago. Another great thing about DePauw academics is that students are constantly inspired and excited about what they are learning. We talk and debate political, social, ethical, and personal issues outside of the classroom.
Although stereotyping is problem at DePauw, similar problems are found on any college campus, particularly at small, private universities. I am proud to be a DePauw tiger. That last four years here have been the best year of my life, not because of my sorority, and not because of the fraternity parties on weekends, although both of those have opened doors to many wonderful friendships. The reason my time at DePauw has been invaluable to me is because the university has offered me any and every opportunity I could have dreamed of. In my four years, I have taken classes in every single subject, including art, which is a hobby I am passionate about. I have traveled to French Polynesia to study for one month, and Spain to study for 6 months. I have been advised and counseled every step of the way during my internship and job searches, leading to success in both categories, and I have built strong and lasting relationships with my professors. DePauw truly is a unique and challenging institution, and I wouldn't have it any other way. My time here has been spent well, and I will leave with absolutely no regrets, but rather a great deal of pride in my education, and confidence in my future.
