Ursuline College is a small, Roman Catholic liberal arts women's-focused college in Pepper Pike, Ohio, United States. It was founded in 1871 by the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland and is one of the oldest institutions of higher education for women in the United States. Ursuline College offers a diverse spectrum of undergraduate and graduate studies within the Catholic tradition of education. The College offers 30 undergraduate, 11 graduate programs, and a Doctorate of Nursing Practice. Ursuline College currently has 706 undergraduate and 530 graduate students.[1] Although Ursuline College is considered to be a college that focuses primarily on the liberal arts, the institution also offers courses such as nursing and business administration. The school is widely recognized for its Art Therapy program, Breen School of Nursing, and teaching certification program.

The campus is situated approximately 10 miles outside of Cleveland and 30 miles outside of Akron. Ursuline's campus is quite spacious and meticulously landscaped, featuring 12 educational buildings, most recently constructed Sister Diana Stano Athletic Center, the Parker Hannifin Center for the Creative Healing Arts & Sciences, and the Bishop Anthony M. Pilla Center.

In July 2013, the O'Brien Athletic Center was destroyed by a tornado that ripped through the campus. With generous donations from the community as well as insurance payments, a new athletic center was completed for Fall 2015. The state-of-the-art Sister Diana Stano Athletic Center offers a fitness space overlooking the beautiful campus, an expansive and welcoming gymnasium, shower and locker rooms for visiting and home athletic teams, offices, and conference rooms. The Parker Hannifin Center for the Healing Arts and Sciences, also completed for Fall 2015 semester, provides top level educational equipment and classrooms for Nursing and Art Therapy students. Both buildings provide a beautiful and serene environment for Ursuline students and faculty.

The Pilla Center is quintessentially the essence of the Ursuline College Campus, acting as the social catalyst for students to meet and exchange ideas in the confines of a spectacularly engineered building. The main gathering space has a delightful view of the lake, and is two stories high with crystalline glass windows on adjacent sides, and a luminescent stained glass window that faces the main quadrangle. The building provides a space for commuters on the go, as well as resident students and faculty, for a place to converse or grab some sustenance on the way to class. The new and improved dining hall, staffed by locally owned and family-driven Metz Culinary Management, offers a food court with a variety of healthy and delicious options from a main menu, a la carte choices, and an economical meal plan for students. Food is locally sourced wherever possible, and many menu items are often prepared homemade from scratch.

Additionally, the college's Florence O'Donnell Wasmer Gallery is host to changing display of both professional and student artwork exhibits, and remains open for public consumption Tuesday through Sunday in the afternoon.


Ursuline College teams participate as a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division II.[2] The Arrows are a member of the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC), but formerly were a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics' now-defunct American Mideast Conference (AMeC) until the 2011-12 season. Women's sports include basketball, bowling, cross country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball.
