Fun Facts

  • In 1900, when the first athletic team to ever represent DePaul University was organized, the monogram "D" was selected for the uniforms. From this originated the nickname D-Men, which evolved into Demons.
  • The Blue Demon athletic teams at DePaul University acquired their deathly pallor in 1901 by a vote of the student body. The color blue signifies loyalty.
  • DePaul University's McGowan Environmental Science and Chemistry Building was the first university science building in Illinois to earn Gold LEED-certification from the US Green Building Council, which recognizes leadership in energy efficiency and environmental design.
  • Ray Meyer, DePaul University's long-time head varsity basketball coach, earned his 600th career victory in the third game of the 1979 season, one of a handful of coaches to reach this career milestone. He was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, only the fourth active coach to be so honored.
  • In 1978, DePaul University bought the storied but soon-to-close Goodman School of Drama from the Art Institute of Chicago, turning luminaries like Linda Hunt and Joe Mantegna into alumni and the DePaul Theatre School into a nationally ranked program.

  • DePaul University's Seton Hall was ranked #3 among the nation's 15 best residence halls in the 2012 Dormy Awards.

  • DePaul University's green initiatives include over 70 water bottle refill stations.
  • DePaul University's College of Law was one of the first law schools in Illinois to admit women and Jewish students.
  • DePaul University's mascot is named Dibs, which stands for Demon in a Blue Suit.
  • DePaul University was originally named St. Vincent's College.
  • DePaul University Theatre School alumnus Michael Rooker costarred in The Walking Dead and Guardians of the Galaxy.
  • Four members of the rock band Chicago graduated from DePaul University. The band's original name was Chicago Transit Authority.
