Paul chose Ursinus because it offered him an opportunity to pursue academic and athletic goals. The combination of financial aid and a suburban campus near a major city made Ursinus an attractive location for him to want to spend his four years in college.
At Ursinus, the small class sizes offered him the opportunity to cultivate relationships with professors and classmates in ways which would not have been possible at larger institutions. The intimate campus offers a sense of family among classmates, as well as with faculty and staff that he has cherished at Ursinus.
Since his time at Ursinus, Paul has been offered numerous opportunities by faculty and staff to be involved in amazing extra-curricular activities, which have really enhanced his Ursinus experience!
