A private college (not funded by the public purse). As a result, the tuition fees are high; the good side to this is that you won't fuck around when you're spending all that money for the course. DeVry grads are respected and you are virtually guaranteed that you will be able to get a job when you graduate. I have worked with many DeVry grads in my field (electronics) and have found them to be used to hard work, putting in a good effort, achieving results, and doing fine work. Also they are notably on time for meetings and they come prepared.
Oh, the new hire went to DeVry...I can't foresee us having any problems with his/her on-the-job training phase.
