Congratulations and welcome #Ursinus2023! 

There is no more powerful word than “us.” It turns a single person into a team. one person’s passion into a club. An idea into a movement. At Ursinus, we believe working together can solve any problem and achieve any goal— no matter how challenging. 

We have seen all of these qualities in you and your class. We value your accomplishments and ambitions, as you and your family surely do, too.  We are excited to welcome you to campus. Scroll through this page to find info specifically for new students. Go Bears!
