There are many ways to visit Ursinus.
One-on-one Information Session followed by Campus Tour
The one-on-one information session will cover the “bear necessities” of Ursinus College with just you, your family and either an Admission staff member or one of our Senior Admission Fellows. This 30-minute session, which covers academics, campus life and the admission process, will give you a great overview of the UC experience. Please note on holidays and busier visit days, we may not be able to personalize your visit.
Interview followed by one-on-one Information Session and Campus Tour
(Seniors and Transfer Students Only)
Offered from mid-May through February 1**, the optional admission interview is an opportunity for a member of the Admission staff or one of our Senior Admission Fellows to get to know you beyond your application. Start with a 30-minute conversation, followed by a 15-minute information/Q&A session for you and your family. Business casual dress is encouraged, and we invite you to bring a resume and unofficial transcript with you. **Interviews will resume mid-May for rising seniors.
This 45-minute to hour long tour, led by a Student Tour Guide, will give you a comprehensive view of our beautiful 170-acre campus. If possible, we always try and give you a personalized tour with just your family and our tour guide. Please let us know when you register if you require any accommodations.
