What is Ursuline College?:

Ursuline College is a small, private Catholic college, located about 30 minutes east of downtown Cleveland. Created in 1871 as a women’s college, today the college is women-focused but not exclusively women, and around 9 percent of its 1400 students are men.

Courses Offered:

Ursuline offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate studies within the Catholic tradition. The College offers 30 undergraduate and 7 graduate programs. Although still primarily a liberal arts school, Ursuline also offers courses such as nursing and business administration. The school is particularly known for its teacher’s certification program. Visit the college’s website for curriculum specifics, tuition, and financial assistance information.

The Campus at Ursuline College:

The beautifully landscaped, spacious campus features 12 educational buildings as well as the Matthew J. O’Brien recreation complex, and the new Bishop Anthony M. Pilla Learning Center. The College’s Florence O’Donnell Wasmer Gallery hosts a changing display of professional and student art exhibits and is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday in the afternoons.

Successful Almunae:

Ursuline College was the first women’s college in Ohio and one of the first in the United States. The school is still dedicated to challenging its students to seek the truth and to continue learning long after they leave the college. Successful alumnae include the Honorable Renee Jones Weeks, Judge in the Superior Court of New Jersey; Pat Pendry, Program Director for American Greetings; and Denise San Antonio Zeman, President and CEO of Saint Luke’s Foundation in Cleveland.
