Student and Graduate Perspectives
"Ursuline College Accelerated Program is the reason that I finally finished my college degree. The coursework was definitely challenging, and learning to balance full-time work, a house, time for my husband and schoolwork took a little time but the staff and faculty made the transition back into college life simple. Through the program I gained the experience and knowledge I needed to be prepared for the future. Thank you for everything you have done over the years!"

"The number of evening and weekend classes is very helpful but the small, interactive classes are the biggest benefit! My previous experience was at a community college and those classes were quite large. I didn't realize what I was missing until I came to Ursuline. There is truly a team atmosphere and great networking opportunities. I think there is an unfounded fear of going back to college, I tell my friends and colleagues to start slowly, but start!"

"A benefit of my education in paralegal studies at Ursuline College Accelerated Program was to get further ahead in the legal field, to make myself more marketable and to develop into a well-rounded person. Since I was a working adult, the schedule was a little intense at first, but after becoming used to it, I cannot now imagine taking a class that is longer than five weeks! The class size makes every class seem very personalized and encourages the students to participate openly. The paralegal studies and other faculty have all been extremely enthusiastic about their subjects of expertise. It has always seemed to me that they want us to understand and enjoy the topic as much as they do."

"I am seeking to position myself to further my career, be better equipped to perform in my current role and improve my thinking, writing and presentation skills. Ursuline College Accelerated Program has made it easy with the one night a week schedule. The homework is sometimes a struggle, but usually manageable. I have been able to apply better writing and presentation skills on my job. I have to admit that the program is truly easier than I thought it would be and the deferred payment option plan makes it more financially manageable."
