Six faculty members from Ursuline's sister school in Taiwan, Wenzao Ursuline College of Languages, are currently visiting campus for three weeks to improve their English and to have a firsthand experience of American culture. In addition to regular classes, they will have the opportunity to spend time with Ursuline faculty and staff, as well as enjoy many of the cultural activities that Cleveland has to offer. They will attend an Indians game, visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, check out the West Side Market, tour other local higher education institutions and more!
Ursuline College was founded in 1871 and was one of the first women-only colleges in the United States.
