What do you love most about Ursinus?

The thing that I love most about Ursinus is the community atmosphere. I always see a familiar face anywhere that I go on campus, and all of the students, faculty, and staff are eager to support and advocate for one another. Our campus is an open and welcoming space that has allowed me to explore so many of my interests and passions at the same time.

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

I have had so much support from professors during my time at Ursinus, with whom I have been able to explore my interests in science and passions for public policy. I have had the opportunity to work in Dr. Rebecca Lyczak’s research lab as a research student during the past 2 academic years, and I will be continuing my research as an honors project this academic year. My fellowship with the Parlee Center for Science and the Common Good has provided me the space to further develop my passion for studying ethics and how the interconnectedness of science and policy impacts us all.

Advice for incoming students:

Try it all! Ursinus provides you with so many diverse opportunities to get involved and explore new academic and extracurricular interests, which help you to learn more about yourself and your passions.
