Ursinus College Reviews
The staff is super helpful in your process to achieve your goals. The entire campus is like a giant communal family! There's a lot of things to be involved with and many employment/internship opportunities.
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.
There's a vast amount of opportunities at Ursinus that not only help you get to where you want to be in life after graduation, but as well help you figure out where exactly that place or career is. From the research involvement to study abroad programs to career events on and off campus, Ursinus really helps its' students become settled and secure not only in their career paths, but also with themselves as people.
