How We Reach Our Personal Best
Every Ursinus College student-athlete knows there is someone cheering them on, pushing them to succeed on the field and in the classroom. Ursinus College is an original charter member of the Centennial Conference, which encourages athletic competition among national liberal arts colleges and universities that share the same high quality academic aspirations, deny the use of athletic scholarships, and maintain a commitment to the total educational experience of students. Of conference members, Ursinus is the only school to compete across all 24 varsity teams, plus gymnastics. And the 2013-2014 season was one for the record books.
“At Ursinus, we don’t just teach our sport—what we provide is an educational experience outside the classroom that is vital to the Ursinus experience. For our students, being part of a team deepens their sense of dedication, leadership, and community, and helps form relationships that will last far beyond their college years.”—Kevin Small, Head Coach, Basketball
“I think what I love best about coaching here at UC is the positive energy you get from so many diverse groups…swimming, in particular, can sometimes be a forgotten sport. I never felt that way here at Ursinus and our success shows just that! The students, professors, facilities staff, campus safety, admissions and all the services so vital to student achievement are all on board with help and support.”—Mark Feinberg, Head Coach, Swimming
