I completed my Master's degree while working two part-time jobs and attending class full-time. I understand the dedication and perseverance it takes to balance life and school. Although it was not easy, earning my Master's degree was self-rewarding. I learned to be a life-long learner and to bring my education and experiences to the classroom and workplace. I look forward to working with you throughout the application process!Education:
- Master of Business Administration, 2008, Cleveland State University
- Bachelor of Business Administration, 2007, Cleveland State University
- Bachelor of Science, 2005, Ohio UniversityWhat I like best about Ursuline College:
Everyone at Ursuline is so friendly and helpful! You can't walk down the hall without someone saying 'hi' to you. Even though Ursuline's campus is small and intimate, there is always something going on. From a fashion show and an athletic game, to a bake sale and blood drive, there is always a fun activity to attend.

While earning my Bachelor’s in Visual Communication Design and pursuing minors in both Public Relations & Marketing as well as Studio Art from Ursuline College, I worked multiple jobs while attending classes full-time. I love the challenges that I was presented with learning to balance my academic, personal, and family life and believe that it pushed me to become a very diligent and dedicated individual. As I pride myself for my academic successes and honors, I look forward to working with those who wish to further their academic and professional careers!

Megan Schauer, Graduate Admission Student WorkerAbout me:
I am a Junior at Ursuline and my major is Nursing. I graduated from Eastlake North High School and plan on becoming a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. I also work at the Willoughby Dairy Queen, so school and work are my main activities. When I can catch a break, I LOVE to shop and do pretty much anything that is fun!What I like best about Ursuline College
: While I am here I actually feel like a real person and I always feel welcome, never as an outcast or just a number. Everyone at Ursuline is so nice and friendly and are always willing to help.
