What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ursinus College is a small-town college in suburban Pennsylvania. Not to far from Philly but don't except to be going there on the weekends or finding much of a bar scene nearby. There is something students at UC refer to as the "Ursinus Bubble" meaning you are quite literally confined to the small campus of UC majority of your first year, unless you are lucky enough to have a car on campus! If you are looking for a small school where you know EVERYONE and can literally roll out of bed 5 minutes before class, this is the place for you! The academics are rigorous and it is heavily centered on the sciences but other majors do well too. The party scene is nice because it is a wet campus and that allows for drinking everywhere but the freshman dorms. Greek life is very prominent but it isn't the end of the world if you aren't apart of it. But in all honesty most parties are hosted by organizations or Sports teams so just get involved in something so you can get to know people. Definitely not a very diverse school, that is something to mention.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are black, do not do it. There are separate rules you must follow and the school leadership does not mind letting you know. They will even intimidate you by calling ou a bully. "Angry black female" or" "Angry black man" are the stereotypes that they label the black students with. They also find ways to get rid of the black students before they graduate their senior year.

A wonderful institution for higher learning! I absolutely adored my time at Ursinus College and learned so much from my time there as a student. I went from being a timid Freshman to a confident Senior and made memories, shared laughs and worked hard to achieve my academic and personal goals. .

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.
