Why Ursinus? When I first visited the campus, everyone was so welcoming and nice. It felt like a very close-knit community and it had a family feeling that I liked. I liked the many options that the school had academically and athletically, allowing me to focus on my academics while also being a part of the men’s tennis Team. I was also familiar with the school because my older sister goes here, so I knew from her stories how amazing Ursinus truly was. I knew that it would be a great fit for me.
