Like a good deal? Who doesn’t like a good deal. Demon Discounts is a nice perk many businesses and attractions provide DePaul Students. Check their home page: http://discounts.depaul.edu for the latest deals. Another tip is a lot of businesses around campus will provide a discount if you ask and show your ID even if they aren’t on the official Demon Discounts roster!
MALS/IDS is happy to announce the release of our latest issue of Convergence. MALS/IDS students and alumni should anticipate the arrival of Convergence in their mailboxes within the next few weeks. Until then please browse the issue (here) on our blog. This edition has a wide range of topics and personalities featured. The benefits of attending conferences is explored. Sarah Brown, the senior Technology Consultant and Project Lead for e-portfolios at DePaul, shares her insights on Digication. Graduating students Hakki Gurkan and Megan Metzger give first-person narratives reflecting on their time at DePaul. Finally we welcome two new students, Rachel Conrad and Sana Bell, who were interviewed about starting their DePaul journeys.

Have you been taking advantage of Demon Discounts? For instance an email was floating around with these offers:
They say it pays to Discover…well it also saves to bring your DePaul ID.
- First and foremost, please apply for the MALS/IDS Partial Tuition Assistance. This program can help ease the burden of the cost of classes and (because it’s available quarterly) there’s always a chance of acquiring this funding for yourself. The application form can be found on D2L.
- The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs has a fund at http://www.studentaffairs.depaul.edu/omss/areasprograms.html#fase. This fund helps students in their courses of study as well as in their research interests. It wouldn’t hurt to look the information up and apply if it can help you.
- LAS also offers a Graduate Research Funding program, which helps alleviate the cost of research and conference attendance: http://las.depaul.edu/Research/Graduate/GrantProgram.asp. Though the funding is solely aimed at the costs of research and travel for conferences, it can nonetheless be helpful. Please consider looking into this funding if you plan on continuing with research throughout your program.
