Overall a very close nit, excepting community. There are tons of academic and social opportunities for all.

Ursinus is a great College if you are in Bio/Chem track. There are many resources for science classes. Campus is relatively small, so you can easily create relationships on campus. One thing that Ursinus has to change is tuition costs.

This school is not worth their advertising. They do not portray an accurate student experience to prospective students--making sure to gloss over all of their issues right until you move in on campus. The dining hall is disgusting; it was slapped with fourteen health violations last semester after an outbreak of Norovirus. The classes are mostly dull due to lack of student interest or participation. Expect crickets in the classroom and disruptive, drunken freshmen all over campus on the weekend. Their budget seems to emphasize more on athletics and "new, innovative programs" than the liberal arts or theater. Ursinus boasts an inflated percentage of medical school acceptances, something like >90% of pre-med students--while failing to mention that the majority of pre-med students drop out of the track after the first year, due to the rigor and lack of support in large classes that were designed to eliminate students. The college advertises a close-knit, intellectual community--but the administration (especially its residence life) do not care about about your college experience. The lack of diversity, rampant sexual assault/binging culture, and drained funding remain largely unaddressed issues on campus and are not expected to change by the time you might graduate.
