When is the best time to visit DePaul University?

Visiting DePaul University depends on a number of factors, including the season, your schedule, and a lot of uncontrollable variables. We recommend you visit DePaul University twice if you’re serious about enrolling – at least one visit should be when students are on campus and school is in session.
