"During my time at Ursuline College, I was taught about the importance of spirituality in my life. The College community became part of my family and helped me grow not only mentally, but spiritually. The unpredictability of life can be frightening, but because of the nurturing environment of Ursuline, I am able to trust the path I am guided down."

"Throughout my four years at Ursuline College I found it very beneficial to be a part of a campus that was so focused on each student's individual development. Every single one of my professors was invested in my growth of knowledge and honestly wanted to see me succeed."

"An Ursuline education, specifically in the English program, taught me effective communication, project management, leadership skills, and how to work as a member of a team. While at Ursuline, I solidified my commitment to serving others and developed a strong sense of values that have helped guide me through my career. I lean on these values to stay focused on social justice and addressing inequities in the world."

"My Ursuline education fully prepared me for going to graduate school, which ultimately prepared me for where I am now (a child psychologist working in private practice). A long-term goal of mine has always been to help others achieve their goals and explore all their possible opportunities. I have been able to work with countless children and adolescents to help them realize their full worth and potential, and that is truly a great feeling."

"There is truly no better place to obtain a nursing degree. The faculty is nothing short of amazing and the small class sizes allow your instructors to know you on a more personal level. A nursing degree is not an easy path. But the end result is life changing! The high standards set by Ursuline, in particular the nursing program, have taught me to set the bar high for myself and made me a competent nurse."
– Rachel Jalowiec, RN, BSN '16
"The smaller class sizes at Ursuline allowed me to build lasting relationships with faculty and classmates, many of whom helped with applications and motivation to attend graduate school. Over the length of my life, I hope to find ways of instilling 'values, voice, and vision' into every aspect of my life. To volunteer wherever I am needed, to speak up and help others when it is needed, and to create an opportunity for others whenever possible."
– Erin Childers, PhD '11
