What do you love most about Ursinus?

I love the personality that the school has, not just from the people but from the atmosphere. Everything is so welcoming and I loved that when I came here.

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

I’ve been involved in things that I wanted to do when I came to college and things that I never thought I would do. I’ve acted, directed, and stage managed shows here. Everything that I am a part of has really helped me grow and become more confident in myself and my interests. I have made friendships for life here and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

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

I knew Ursinus was the right fit when I learned about the Theater Department and met the professors. Because that is my major, I was very nervous if they were going to like me, but they were so welcoming, and I loved getting to them.

What has been your favorite experience at Ursinus so far?

Getting to impact prospective students has been my favorite. Giving tours to them and talking to them about their interests is something that I love doing because we are what helps them choose to go here. I love being able to help them out.

Advice for incoming students:

Put yourself out there, don’t close yourself off from meeting people and doing different things.
