What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
Ursinus is a small, suburban liberal arts college. Students are serious about their academics and extracurricular activities. The campus is very safe and students and everyone (students, faculty, adminstration) is friendly.
Tracy from Philadelphia, PA
Ursinus College is a tight-knit close community of ambitious students who love to learn and professors who love to teach. The curriculum is like that of no other college because it focuses on shaping students to be honorable members of society and not just intelligent thinkers. There is something for everyone at Ursinus or a least a way to be able to reach it.
