Entrepreneurial and Professional Development: Making Ideas Happen 

 

What is the U-Imagine Center?

At the U-Imagine center our main priority is the enduring success of Ursinus College students. The Center is built on the notion that our student’s potential is endless. Our very structure is tailored to assure students that there is a place to turn full of inspiration when wanting to make their ideas a reality. Although turning a concept into a reality may be challenging, the center provides high quality resources, opportunities, and mentors to refine their ideas into versed products. The U-Imagine center facilitates an environment where students can follow passions and stay true to themselves while also utilizing their highly valuable liberal arts education to guide them on a path to success.

Our Center offers variety of resources that facilitate a hands-on learning experience for students who want to gain long-lasting skillsets that will apply to any endeavor they choose to pursue in the workforce. Ursinus students can utilize the Center as a way to learn how to develop, communicate, and navigate their way through ideas in a professional manner.
