The rules surrounding nightlife at Ursinus are very inclusive. But they also have rules in place to keep the students safe. The night life takes place mostly on campus, although some students over 21 do venture off campus to visit a bar or two in the area. There aren't really clubs in Collegeville, but students create their own "clubs."

Ursinus is located in a town, but we don't know many of the people who actually live there. The next town over is apparently more of a college town then Collegeville.

Most people at Ursinus live on campus. I don't know of many commuters.

There are quite a few restaurants in the area ranging from Chinese, Mexican, Indian, and so on. The only problem is they are not always easy to get to . UC is not located conveniently for people who do not have a car, and people on campus are not very willing to offer rides to friends in need, thus creating a place that makes you feel like you are trapped on campus if you don't have access to a car. The public transportation in the area sucks.

I received quite a bit of financial aid, Ursinus is very generous with what they give to their deserving students.
College Sophomore 2013-08-01T21:49:16Z
I do not spend a lot of time around this atmosphere and would not be able to assess it properly.

The laptops they allow freshman and sophomores are perfect for the first two years. Then if you keep it in nice shape they upgrade you to a newer model for your junior and senior year.

Nightlife places are easily accessible and always fun. Everyone who goes out is only looking for a good time and I have never met anyone who has made me or my friends uncomfortable. A new scene or a change of pace would be nice every now and again but overall a wonderful place to be.

Ursinus is in the heart of Collegeville. This is perfect for me since I come from the small town of Boyertown. Collegeville is a small town but the people and close places are what makes it what it is. Since it is a small town, everyone knows everyone which creates the wonderful atmosphere that is engulfed in each Ursinus student.

Fairly average, but it really depends on which dorm you get. My dorm was fine. Mostly it would depend on the students. Some halls had rowdier students some didn't. There were a lot of problems with cleanliness in the freshman dorms, but I think that had more to do with poor student behavior than with any problems with the janitorial staff. All in all, the rooms and amenities are quite average.

Every student is loaned a laptop by the school so you are never without one. Nothing flashy or high tech, but reliable enough and preprogrammed with useful programs for school. They also provide all students with simple printers that the students may keep for themselves even after they graduate. Finally, the entire campus has wifi, but it can be slow from time to time.

Health & Safety:
I never feel unsafe. The campus is well lit and the safety officers are constantly making rounds. I've had them come in and check on me when I was pulling an all nighter in a classroom!

It's a very small school, so greek life is not necessary to be in the social scene. Most of local organizations so they offer no networking advantages, but I have a few friends involved in greek life and they absolutely love it.

Ursinus is a small liberal arts college in the middle of Pennsylvania and is comprised mostly of the sort of people you would expect. While the students bring in diverse backgrounds, thoughts, and beliefs, it is majority middle class white students.

I am a vegetarian and I always have options and usually don't end up eating the same thing every day which is very nice. That being said, dining hall food is dining hall food, and the downstairs made to order food is not that much better. It's not terrible. Sometimes they have great food and sometimes they really strike out, so as long as you have a fallback you'll be fine!
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T01:39:45Z
There are a lot of different options and variety. All of them are super close too and offer delivery. The costs are reasonable and many places have discounts for the students.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T01:26:16Z
I am extremely happy with my major selection. I would do it over again because it isn't too stressful. There isn't a large workload or difficulty so I love it. My career goals are to be a theater Director and to branch out into the major motion picture films.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T01:03:50Z
I am in the theater program and there is no special application process to get into it. It is as easy as pushing a button.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T00:53:43Z
The off-campus housing selection is very close but very expensive. Having several roommates can help but the availability and proximity to campus makes the process almost unnecessary.
College Sophomore 2013-07-08T14:30:15Z
We have a 24 hour renders in walking distance, if you would rather do your own cooking. Fast food: Mcdonalds, Wedneys, Chinese. We also have an excellant 24 hour diner, which could get pricey. Pizza Stop is very cheap and gives student discounts. Rita's is very close by.
College Sophomore 2013-07-08T14:27:24Z
Collegeville is very comfortable, small, and homey. There are a couple restaurants in walking distance. If you do not own a car, things may become very redundant.
College Sophomore 2013-07-08T14:19:37Z
The computers at Ursinus are excellent. Tech support quickly handles any problems that we might have, whether it is a virus or a key popped off. We are also given printers, which I don't use because you have to buy paper and toner. I print to main buildings, even when it does cost at the end of the year. At least, it is color. Ursinus Wifi works inside buildings, when you step out, you need to find a hot spot.

There's always something going on in Collegeville and, as per my experience, the people in the area are very nice. I'd rather live there than my home city for sure, because the people in my college's town are much nicer and it's much safer too. You can go to Wawa at three or four in the morning and not have to worry about a thing; in Philadelphia, if you're not home by dark, then you have to worry about your well-being, constantly.
College Sophomore 2013-07-06T16:00:43Z
That's a tough question; there are a lot of things to choose from. I think everything is unique about Ursinus. The statues we have are pretty unique; they catch everyone's eye and the ones of people are so realistic that my parents always mistake them for real people. It is hilarious. The Main Street houses are also awesome and the housing tuition is the same for it. This semester, I will be living in Clamer Hall. I like it because it looks like a castle. It's farther from school, but closer to the market, which I go to at least semi-weekly, so it's helpful.
College Sophomore 2013-07-06T15:54:21Z
The computers are great and I rarely have a problem with them. The only thing I don't like is the fact that we have to pay for copies; but, then again, we each have our own printer, so that's usually not a problem for us. It was extremely helpful, having our own laptops and printers, since my old printer wasn't that good and I didn't have a printer.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
