Graduation ceremonies for DePaul University’s 2015 class begin Saturday, and if historical trends hold true, many members of this year’s graduating class will choose to live and work in Chicago.
According to DePaul President Rev. Fr. Dennis Holtschneider, “80 percent of DePaul grads stay and build their lives in greater Chicagoland, making us a net importer of talent into Chicago.” With a student body of almost 24,000, DePaul is the largest private, nonprofit university in the Midwest. The school is the largest Catholic university in the United States.
