Devil's Tuning Fork, a computer game created by students in the Computer Game Development program, was named one of 10 finalists out of 190 entries in the Independent Games Festival's international competition for university and trade school students.
Radio DePaul, the student-run station, won nine awards from the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, including the Abraham & Borst Award for Best College Station in the Nation.
Led by faculty and staff in the College of Computing and Digital Media, DePaul partnered with the international Vincentian family to create Zafen.org, a website that enabled people to make micro loans and donations to help Haitian businesses and schools create jobs and educate the citizens of that impoverished nation. The project was undertaken as part of the worldwide celebration of the 350th anniversary of the deaths of St. Vincent and St. Louise.
DePaul was named one of 286 Green Colleges by the Princeton Review, citing initiatives in conservation, transportation and alternative energy sources, student-led recycling initiatives and the Gold LEED-certified McGowan South science building.
DePaul relocated its O'Hare Campus to Triangle Plaza, 8770 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., Chicago, near O'Hare Airport. Classes and other programs in the new state-of-the art facility began in September.
