Why Ursinus: I chose to come to Ursinus College because of the great sense of community I felt when I came to visit. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, which I had not noticed on other campuses. I also knew I had wanted to be a double major in Dance and Biochemistry before I entered college, and Ursinus College was one of the only places that encouraged me to do both and get involved in other activities. All of the opportunities available to me on this campus, the beautiful green campus, and the people are what made me choose Ursinus.
