Campus Visit Notes for Ursinus College


Visit Description:

From the moment we set foot inside the admissions building, we were treated with warmth. (LOVED the coffee machine--unexpected treat!). The feeling of welcome continued for the next two hours. The admissions office, the admissions counselor, the tour guide, students on campus--all were friendly . We didn't know what to expect at Ursinus, but my daughter left feeling it was now in the top three of schools she would like to attend. Also impressed with the number of new buildings on campus, especially the science building. Even in August the campus was busy. Daughter wants a challenging curriculum (and study abroad), and she felt Ursinus could provide that.
