What do you love most about Ursinus?

I love the community culture at Ursinus. Professors want to help their students succeed, and everyone at Ursinus is very down to earth and personable. The community feels like one big team or family.

What opportunities have you had to explore and grow your passions at Ursinus?

I am fortunate enough to have a leadership role in the Pre-Law Society, which allows me to explore my interest in the legal profession and has given me opportunities to connect with Ursinus alumni that are currently practicing law. I’ve also been able to shadow a judge and observe what goes on in the courtroom.

When did you first discover Ursinus was the right fit for you?

I toured many schools, but after spending a full day here I think I knew that this was the school for me. Everyone was so welcoming and I felt comfortable on the campus - it seemed like the perfect fit for me.

What has been your favorite experience at Ursinus so far?

My favorite experience at Ursinus so far has been the relationships that I have formed with my peers and my professors. I think attending a smaller school gives you a special opportunity to really connect with others, and the support that you get from these relationships is unmatched.

Advice for incoming students:

Get involved! Now is the time to explore your passions/interests, and there are plenty of ways to do that at Ursinus!
