Ursinus College Reviews
Ursinus College has wonderful professors who are knowledgeable and also caring. Classes are not easy and your professors expect you to attend all classes. Ursinus offers many wonderful opportunities such as internships, externship and study abroad. There are many opportunities to volunteer on and off campus. Since Ursinus is a small institution, there is not much of a social life. Socially, the mindset is very provincial. If you have access to a vehicle, the town offers many quaint shops and restaurants. There is also an art museum on campus, and there are often several shows and concerts offered at a discounted rate for students.
As an Art/Art History major at Ursinus, you get full attention from your teachers and advisers because the department is pretty small. Every teacher wants you to test your limits and reach out of your comfort zones to better your education and prepare you for any future jobs or internships. I love my school and the art program especially because at the end of each year the museum on campus exhibits only students work from any and all art classes and give larger space to art/art history majors, allowing their names and work to be seen by the whole campus and any one else who visits the museum.
This is a small liberal arts college that has a big family feel. Practically everyone knows everyone. I liked that professors were accessible and truly interested in your success and education. Classes are small - 10 to 30 students in most cases. Teachers and students are more attentive, leading to a solid education. Ursinus prompts independent thinking and cares about the community.
