What do you love most about Ursinus?

The thing I love most about Ursinus is how you have the ability to get involved in many activities. This allows you to pursue all your interests instead of limiting you to just a few.

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

I was able to start genetics research my sophomore year at Ursinus, which is an opportunity that most science majors do not get in their time as an undergrad student. This has allowed me to explore my passion for genetics and develop useful lab skills.

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

I first discovered Ursinus was the right fit for me when I came for a campus visit. The college met all my wants as a biology major, I was able to meet professors who were excited to get to know me, and I felt so welcomed and right at home when I stepped on campus!

What has been your favorite experience at Ursinus so far?

My favorite experience so far was Ursinus giving me the opportunity to travel to Indiana for the Best Buddies Leadership Conference!

Advice for incoming students:

Be willing to try new things, and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone!
