Ursinus President Brock Blomberg recently joined Smart Talk to discuss how the college is showcasing some new initiatives that take a different approach to the college experience. Some examples are half off of tuition for high achieving students that would lessen the financial burden on middle-class families, an intra-collegiate academic program with Drexel University and other Philadelphia schools, and a new science center that will educate students about the relationship between technology and society will offer students new academic options. He also discussed the recent resignation of the college’s board of trustees following a string of offensive tweets and changes to the federal student aid applications that will bring much needed stress relief to families applying for college aid.
