2 College Junior

Transportation: Parking Is Hard. The parking is limited and tickets are given out a lot (sometimes for no apparent reason). Also, the bus stop is right in front of the school, but I know people who have had horror stories because they got lost.

Greek Life: Greeks Are Involved – The Greeks do not get enough credit at Ursinus. They are involved in everything. There are a few people that do not, but most of the time the Greeks are involved in many activities. Also, if you walk on the campus the letters are everywhere. Non- Greeks do not normally try to understand. A lot of people generalize and the administration wants to get rid of it. However, since Greeks actually do a lot on campus and actually force members most of the time to do community service and to better themselves, I think it would be a bad idea.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Go to Reimert – The only bar around is crowded. Also, Reimert is where everyone can hangout. The cops are becoming a little too involved on campus though.

Parking: Need for Car on Campus – There is really no need to have a car on campus unless you need it in order to go home. The campus is very small which means all of the buildings are in walking distance. Most places that you would need to go to off campus are also within walking distance.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: General Student Body – The girls and guys at this school are very wealthy. Everyone is very nice and seems to take very good care of themselves. I would say that people are not snobby at all. The students are very open when getting to know new students.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students love this school, despite its drawbacks. It is not big or in a nice cultural area; the town offers little to do; and the food on campus definitely could use improvement. But Ursinus' strength lies in its excellent academic program, and the students and professors are a tight-knit group. There are no graduate students that teach classes here. Instead, almost all courses are taught by someone with a doctorate or the highest degree in their field. The professors have a passion for what they teach, and this bleeds into the passion students get when they learn new material. Of course, this doesn't mean that the professors are perfect. Some hold themselves in very high regard because of their degrees, others forget that students aren't quite at their level, and several assign insane amounts of work with brutal deadlines. But that's college—students are forced to manage their time and push themselves academically to new levels, and professors do their best to ensure that students successfully make the leap from high school to college.

The town of Collegeville is picturesque in parts, but it doesn't have much for college students to do. Ursinus is a secure campus with not-so-wonderful campus food, but there are lots of off-campus options. Philadelphia is close but still far enough away for Ursinus to be removed from a large-city setting. In general, this is a small school in a small town. Most students will graduate having met almost everyone who goes here, while also receiving an excellent education. Ursinus is becoming increasingly recognized in the world of colleges. Harvard, for example, has cited Ursinus as an inspiration for its own programs in academics and study abroad. The College has a lot of wonderful aspects, and it has a lot of potential to become one of the finest schools on the East Coast—that is, if students can still tolerate the food by then.
