DeVry University was originally founded in 1931 as the DeForest Training School - named after Lee DeForest, a noted American inventor and colleague of Dr. Human A. DeVry. However, two decades years later, the school changed its name to the DeVry Technical Institute. Over the years, DeVry underwent many new owners and transformations - it was sold to the Keller-Taylor Corporation and combined with other institutions like Ross University, Deaconess College of Nursing, Ohio Institute of Technology and the Becker Professional Review. This list went on to include the American University of the Caribbean, Western Career College and Apollo College.
Students living in student housing or an off campus apartment have access to DeVry's exceptional courses in business administration, engineering, computer information systems, office management and network and communications management. The school operates on a trimester schedule. DeVry Chicago also allows students to take courses in person or online at any location within Chicago where the subject is offered.
DeVry University has more than 90 campuses spread throughout the United States and Canada, with the Chicago campus at its founding. The school also has locations in Brazil. Student living and university living at the original Chicago campus places students within close proximity of the city's distinct cultural, educational, commercial and recreational landmarks like Willis Tower, Navy Pier, Lake Michigan, the Loop, Wrigley Field and the Field Museum.
