Ursinus College Reviews

Ursinus was a school that I applied at last minute to and wasn't entirely sure about my decision. However, I have been pleasantly surprised over and over again here. The professors are extremely qualified in their fields and the small class size makes it super easy to get a more personal and engaging learning experience. The student body is diverse not only in their ethnic background but also socioeconomically, politically and their interest. I am a member of the swimming and track team along with balancing a double major and a radio show. The passion among the students here, especially the studnet-atheletes is contagious, and it wasn't long before I found myself passionate not only about my course but also my studies.
Review Your College
My school is very community-based. I know so many people, probably more than I knew in high school, and they are all really nice, easy to talk to, and smart. These classes that I'm taking are very hard my first year, because I am taking biology, chem, German, and a common intellectual course along with a one credit philosophy course. There's a lot of work involved; however, I feel that it is all going to be worth it in the end. This college has professors that are willing to help, and want to see you succeed. Classes are small to really get to know your professor. It makes it a more enjoyable time learning. I love my school so much, and I would not want to go anywhere else!
I love the environment, it's a small school so you can walk to classes within 5 minutes and I love the campus feel. It's in a small suburban town with loads of trees and nature on campus. The food isn't great, but most college diners aren't, the food is generally okay but doesn't have much variety and could always be more nutritious. The academics are great, I've loved all my professors, even the ones that taught classes I hated. They are also great because we have small classes, so there is more time for teachers to help students with one-on-one time.
