What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ursinus College has some of the strongest academics from what I have seen and heard in the Philadelphia area. I have taken classes at three other colleges or universities nearby as well. Furthermore, Ursinus professors are without a doubt the best professors around. They will always find office hours for you, and they never skip classes. However, Ursinus could definitely use some updates to the classrooms such as old desks, new boards, and other new materials. The campus does a decent job with providing activities for people, especially as an alternative to drinking. I also know that this is something they are actively putting more effort and money into, as it has already gotten better in my four years there. Ursinus could put more money into its club sports, in which many students partake. We have very active and rigorous club sports team, but the school gives them little funding and horrible options for field or gym space.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my experience with Ursinus College has been amazing. As a rising Sophomore, I remember the stress and terror of choosing the "right" college in vivid detail. It can be difficult to tell if you have made the right choice but I truly believe Ursinus was the right college for me. Academically, I have been pushed to excel both by my peers and by the faculty and staff. I have made incredible relationships and have met people that I will never forget. I have also been given access to remarkable opportunities both in the classroom and in school supported activities. One interesting and possibly off-putting aspect of Ursinus is the "Common Intellectual Experience" which allows students to investigate and expand their understanding of the world we live in. This required course broaches difficult concepts and can be awkward at times, but in my opinion, the discomfort is well worth the benefits and I am a better person for taking it. Like any post-secondary education, Ursinus College is not for everyone. However, if you're anything like me, it could be the perfect fit for you!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here I feel welcomed and accepted by students and faculty. It's really easy to make friends and you're most likely going to become friends to someone from each sport so going to the sporting events is always so much fun. Class sizes are small because the student population is small but it makes it a lot easier to get to know your professors. "Off-campus" housing isn't really a thing because the school owns victorian style homes along the perimeter of the school that you can live in for on-campus housing prices. I feel a lot safer walking home from my friends' dorm because the college isn't too big. It is beautiful though and the facilities are immaculate. The gym and the new science building are absolutely gorgeous.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ursinus College has a small environment that’ll allow me to thrive from not having too many distractions. I think that having access to professors who have previously been in my current position, will allow me to gain the tools and skills necessary to thrive in my chosen career path.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ursinus College is a really great place to go to school. I was skeptical at first and not very enthusiastic as it was my safety school when I was applying. However, it is much more to me now. I am constantly impressed by the talent and intelligence of both my peers and my professors. There are always activities going on and events to take part in almost every night. The food is definitely not my mother's cooking, but there is always a variety, including vegetarian and vegan options, and wonderful dessert. I am comfortable in my bed, happy with my classes, and I never feel like I am in danger while walking the campus. I feel fortunate to attend such a great college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ursinus provides a valuate education for an affordable price. It provides the desired small-school atmosphere that appeases students looking for a small school. Professors genuinely care about students and the small-class size allows for better professor-student relationships. There is a lot of extracurricular opportunities for students with interests in sports, research, art, and much more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Urisnus is a quiet, gorgeous campus that is littered with confusing statues that you will continuously leave you baffled by their purposelessness, but you will inevitably grow fond of their peculiar familiarity. Located 40 minutes outside of Philadelphia in a small town tritely named Collegeville, Ursinus boasts a highly liberal but somewhat homogeneous student body of less than 2,000 students. Despite this, Ursinus offers a wide variety of niches--whether you are looking to pound brews with the boys or participate in a Nerf battle on Saturday night, Urisnus will provide. While the food is hardly palatable in most cases, the academics do not disappoint! Ursinus professors are profoundly capable, intelligent, and open people who strive to support their students in a rigorous academic environment. In essence, Ursinus is an acquired taste that produces some of the happiest students as well as some of the most disappointed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ursinus College is one that is strong in academics and vary in opportunities. Due to the small campus, the class sizes are smaller to give students more attention and have more ability to ask questions. Professors are responsive and care about your education. There are many opportunities for work, study abroad, internships, research, and actual hands on experience. Overall, for a small school, Ursinus has some hidden gems that as a student you must seek in order to utilize your time to its full extent.
