It can be so many things, such as volunteering in the local Greencastle community to participating in a student organization. The reality is that you will find what you are passionate about at DePauw, and more likely than not there will be an initiative or program in place to pursue that passion in the best interest of bettering both yourself and our DePauw community.

CREATING GLOBAL CONNECTIONS
Because of my work for the student paper and my interest in politics, two of my professors nominated me as a delegate to the 2017 Athens Democracy Forum. I got to work alongside students from around the world, and I don’t think I’ve ever been exposed to as many different perspectives in such a short span of time.”

& PATHWAYS OUTSIDE OF DEPAUW
I interned with CNN Sports at CNN Headquarters in Atlanta, Ga. While with CNN Sports, primarily Bleacher Report, I completed several tasks, including writing articles, editing video and audio highlights and pitching story ideas during weekly futures meetings. I believe I was successful at this internship because of the incredible versatility that the DePauw liberal arts education has provided me. Being able to have an open mind, communicate effectively and be well-versed in a variety of areas are emphasized at DePauw and there is no doubt in my mind that I would not have been selected for this internship had I not possessed these vital skills. I owe my success to DePauw University.â€? DOMINIC MIRANDA â€™19

AND WITHIN IT
For someone who studies chemistry, nothing is better than lab research. During the summer, I experienced life as a researcher with a professor who not only believed in me but put his trust in me. Our work on two tropical diseases made me feel like I did something that will impact many people.â€?

(RE)DISCOVER YOUR PASSION, CREATE YOUR PATH Whether you want to complement your major or explore something completely different – you design your own experience. Want to develop an art portfolio to go with that diploma in physics? Major in English but also be a Management Fellow? What about a focus in computer science and theatre? It’s all here.
At DePauw, I’ve had the opportunity to join countless organizations, develop close connections with professors and cultivated a close network of lifelong friends. I don’t think that I would have had the chance to engage in a fraction of these opportunities if I went anywhere else.”
