What do you love most about Ursinus?

The ease with which I have gotten to know professors and other staff members along with the knowledge and guidance they have provided me.

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

One opportunity that I’ve had to explore and grow my passions at Ursinus would be through studying abroad for a semester in Dublin, Ireland. It turned out to be one of my favorite experiences in college so far. It allowed me to utilize knowledge from my major in politics within my host country while also learning new information from a global perspective that I can use going forward in the classroom and beyond.

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

When I took a tour here after my Dad encouraged me to. I didn’t think that I would like it as much as I did - especially since I was uneasy about going to the same school as some of my family - but I really enjoyed the small college feel.

What has been your favorite experience at Ursinus so far?

My favorite experience at Ursinus so far has been having the ability to combine my interests of Politics and MCS into a double major in both of those areas.
