What do you love most about Ursinus?

I love the close connection I have with my professors! They know my goals and are always eager to help me achieve them.

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

I had the opportunity to do two types of unique research. One was cardiology-based research on a mouse model in a lab setting. The other was conducting field research in Costa Rica on my own research proposal.

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

When I took my tour, I was drawn in by the small class sizes and the ability to easily get my questions answered.

What has been your favorite experience at Ursinus so far?

Being able to try something new every year and getting some of my best friends out of it! I’m now living in a Main Street house with all of these people which I am looking forward to!

Advice for incoming students:

There are classes and clubs for every interest, so don’t be nervous to try as much as you can! There is no rush to decide on one path you freshman year.
