    URSINUS COLLEGE: A GRATEFUL MEDICAL STUDENT'S PERSPECTIVE

    Great professors who really care about me and helped me learn not only how to be a better student but a better person as well. The students there were so incredibly friendly and helpful it felt like a home when I visited, and for the next 4 years as well.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The Course Curriculum provides a diverse amount of experiences, especially CIE, the common intellectual experience, which helps bridge the gap between majors and help me become a better person. Students at Ursinus are well rounded and ready to think about the world in a new way.

    URSINUS COLLEGE REVIEW

    I wanted to go to a small liberal arts college and Ursinus made me feel at home from the moment I stepped on campus. I loved the classes I took, the professors I had and the friends I made. The small size made me feel part of a community and it felt like family.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It's great. I love that freshmen are required to take the common intellectual experience which is the freshman seminar. Everyone on campus has gone through this class and can relate to one another about the texts that they have read.
