Impact of Ursinus

I am so grateful to Ursinus because it is through the schools and the members of the education and English department that I was able to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher. The constant support that the professors are able and willing to provide is something unique to the Ursinus community. From what courses to take to the application process, the members of the UC community will be there for you every step of the way and I am so grateful. Ursinus taught me to value students for more than their test scores and that as a teacher it is my responsibility to give them emotional support in addition to academics.
