Why Ursinus? I chose Ursinus because I wanted to have more real and personal interactions with my professors, coaches, and peers. I find it much easier and more substantial to have those interactions within a smaller campus. With the small campus I have been forced to immerse myself and learn beyond what I ever expected. I also have the opportunity to familiarize myself in a different culture and environment since I am from Florida, which has become a rather new adventure. Ursinus truly has become a home for me because of the relationships and experiences I have built here
