    After immersing themselves in a liberal arts education rooted in the Catholic traditions of social justice and intellectual inquiry, Ursuline grads go on to make the world more.

    Don't take our word for it. These students and grads tell you -- in their own words -- why they chose Ursuline, how Ursuline has helped them build a career, and what they strive for now. Their motivations, their career paths and their dreams for the future are all different. Their love for Ursuline is pretty similar.
