Tip for the college search:

Give us a call! We know the college search process is exciting and overwhelming. We are eager to be a resource and answer any questions you may have along the way. We are always excited to talk-all-things Ursinus College!

Ursinus is a great place for:

Getting involved and trying new things! Between the various clubs and activities, your Experiential Learning Project, and the liberal arts education, there are so many opportunities to step outside your comfort zone and immerse yourself in the Ursinus community!


I was born and raised in Fairfield, Connecticut. I found my passion for working with prospective students and their families during the college search process as an Admissions Ambassador for Providence College. It was through my educational experience that I gained a strong appreciation for the value of a liberal arts education. I am excited to combine my social work background, higher education experience, and love of the liberal arts to provide support to each of my students and their families throughout the college search process. I am thrilled to be a member of the Ursinus community and help students experience all the amazing things that make Ursinus such a special place to be. At UC, you will find engaged and driven students pursuing their passions through a holistic educational approach. I encourage you to come visit campus and experience the spirit of Ursinus!
