Why Ursinus?: I chose Ursinus for its open and welcoming community. It made me feel at home which was really appreciated.
Favorite experience at Ursinus: One of my favorite experiences at Ursinus has been the Crigler program. Over the summer it was a great way to meet other incoming students and it helped jump start many of my friendships. It was also a great transition from high school to college.
Any advice you’d offer to incoming students: I recommend that you come in open minded and ready to lean into discomfort. This is your time and experience so make sure you make the most of it. Don’t worry about what others think or say.
