Tip for the college search

Visit and apply to different types of colleges and universities to find out what kind of school is right for you. Visit and take a tour of every campus that you can. This is a great way to learn more about each school and the type of academic and social environment they provide. Do not be afraid to ask questions! Be sure to leave your campus visits with no question left unanswered. This will help you narrow down your choices and make your college decision a little easier.

Ursinus is a great place for

Opportunities! Ursinus offers so many chances for students to put into practice what they learn to better prepare them for graduation and beyond. It is truly hard not to get involved with the many clubs and organizations Ursinus offers.

Background

Upon graduating from Cabrini University, I worked for The Philadelphia Inquirer for two years before I returned to Cabrini to work in the Admissions Office as an Assistant Director of Transfer Admission. Since I worked as a student ambassador as an undergrad, it made my transition into an admissions professional very easy. My undergraduate experience helped me to find a true value in a liberal arts education. I also found that attending a smaller university, I was able to get more involved and experience so much more academically and within student life. Ursinus offers an exceptional environment for students who are looking to get the most out of their college experience and education. My favorite part of this job is getting to know students personally and hearing what they want out of their college experience. I love helping students find the right fit for them and I am excited to help prospective students and their families through the admissions process here at Ursinus.
