Why Ursinus? I chose Ursinus because it felt like home during my first visit. I can see myself growing as both a student and an athlete at Ursinus. As a student wanting to pursue a career in science, I believe that Ursinus’ science department will best prepare me for the future. I admire Ursinus’ small community because it gives me the chance to get to know more people. I like that the class sizes are small because it will allow me to be more engaged and participate in class. The most important thing is the opportunities that Ursinus has to offer are limitless. There are so many ways to be involved at the college. As an athlete, Ursinus’ athletic program has a lot to offer with great coaches, teammates and facilities. I chose Ursinus because the college will best prepare me for not only living a life with purpose but also achieving goals in my profession one day
