DePaul School for New Learning is Fantastic for Adults
Digital Youth Assessor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 9, 2015
Pros: evening, weekend classes, financial aid
Cons: To short, to fast
I love DePaul. Because adults have a life that is different from our youth, the courses at DePaul are designed for the adult learners. It is work that allows adults to learn and involve what they know as adults into their studies. It is not all about reflection, but reflection is helpful to some who learn in this style. DePaul School for New Learning was a therapeutic to me because as most of us know we have challenges in our lives. Many of the classes taught touched a spot in your life that makes you feel alright with yourself. The professors are so organic in terms of working with you. Because most students are older in this program, we have many commonalities and experiences. This in itself are the reasons to strive on to become a graduate of DePaul. It a honor to make it happen and the professors are right there under your wings.

Intermediate Systems Engineer (Current Employee), ChicagoJune 22, 2015
Management is bueracratic and a hindrance to all things IT. Lots of incompetence in the department (development) but the engineers are solid. Not a place of incentives, but of steady work and easy hours.

I also enjoyed working with everyone in this profession because teaching is one of the most beautiful and hardest professions.
