“Do something, get moving, be confident, risk new things, stick with it, then be ready for big surprises.” These words, spoken by the foundress of the Ursuline Sisters St. Angela Merici hundreds of years ago, still ring true today.

For 146 years, Ursuline students have accomplished their goals with these words in mind. Your learning experience will be custom-tailored to you, with an average class size that averages 11 students. Then you’ll put that learning into practice by rolling up your sleeves in a vibrant city and digging into internships, clinicals, practicums, service learning, networking, and/or research. And you won’t be alone – Ursuline students completed over 5,600 hours of these activities last year. Given all of this individualized attention and exposure, be ready for lifelong friendships, a higher than average job placement rate and starting salary, and the likelihood to rise further and faster in your career, just to name a few.
