We've made changes to help keep you healthy and keep you with us!
Ursuline College resumed face-to-face instruction in fall 2020 and we look forward to continuing to meet in person during the 2021-2022 academic year. To minimize the spread of germs, we installed acrylic screens and hand-sanitizer stations, require masks, enforce social distancing, and we have increased the housekeeping schedule. These initiatives will help you stay healthy and focused on your Ursuline education and the better future you're building!
At Ursuline, we're well positioned to provide in-person classes, even during a pandemic, because our class sizes were already small. We can spread out and achieve social distancing in existing classrooms and laboratories much more easily than large colleges can. You get to know your professors and classmates face to face - even behind those masks - while maintaining important distancing.
We've equipped our classrooms so that, if necessary, some students can participate in class remotely.
Our Nursing students returned to in-person clinicals, at some of the nation's top hospitals, in fall 2020. Hands-on learning at its best!
If you're an undergrad in the traditional or SDAP program, your textbooks and other required course materials will be delivered to you by Follett, our bookstore operator, when you register. The cost is included in your tuition or course fees, so no surprises about costs after enrollment. And Follett estimates you can save up to 30% becuase of its bulk purchasing. Less stress and you'll be ready for class on Day 1.
We plan to re-open our fitness center so all students can work out, overlooking our sparkling pond. We're following all NCAA regulations and CDC guidelines for health and safety, including regular testing of athletes and coaches. Go Arrows!
Ursuline's Ralph M. Besse Library was already very digitized even before the pandemic. Our librarians are a few clicks away when you need help accessing the right resources.
We will continue to monitor the spread of COVID and the recommendations of health authorities. We expect to also continue requiring masks, social distancing, and surveillance testing for the foreseeable future.
For us, staying safe during the pandemic is all about shared responsibility. We're in this together and #ursulinestrong.
