Alright – we are in the final stretch of winter. (We promise!) Only 10 more days ’till it is officially spring. To help you get ready for the season, we are sharing our spring 2014 suggestions – drawing inspiration from Women’s History Month, of course!
Today (March 9) was our first full day in Ecuador. We began with a healthy breakfast of fruitas and granola. Then, we traveled to Old Town Quito and stopped first at La Basilica del Voto Nacional. We climbed what felt like hundreds of steep and treacherous stairs in La Basilica to reach the top of the bell tower. Our next stop was a Franciscan church called La Compania. The church was built by the Jesuits between the years of 1605 – 1765. Why did it take so long? From nave to alter, floor to ceiling, the church is painstakingly covered in a dazzling gold leaf.

The Ursuline College lacrosse program won its debut on Sunday (March 9) afternoon, defeating host Wilmington College by a score of 21-2.
The Quakers slipped to 0-3 on the young year after losses to Beloit (21-7) and Alma (21-3) earlier this week.
Freshman Natalie Pachinger led the Arrows with six goals and an assist while her classmate Anika Aberegg added four goals and a helper.
We are on our way to Quito, Ecuador! We are currently stopped in Miami wondering what the upcoming week has in store for us from adjusting to the altitude to the impact we will make over the following week. Knowing that Quito is 9,400 feet above sea level what will the altitude difference be like compared to the 653 feet above sea level that Cleveland sits upon?
On Saturday, March 1 2014, SNUC (Student Nurses of Ursuline College) hosted the ninth annual Go Red for Women Campaign Fundraiser (launched by the American Heart Association) to benefit research efforts in the fight against women’s heart disease.
Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in women, claiming the lives of nearly 500,000 women each year. We raised over $3600 to help find the cure! On behalf of SNUC and the American Heart Association, we would like to say a special thank you to all who made this event possible.
H.E.L.P. (Hope, Educate, Love and Protect) is an organization dedicated to sustainable primary education in impoverished African regions. The organization believes it is every child’s birthright to receive hope for a better future, education to grow, unconditional love and protection from disease and illness.
For two weeks in March 2014, Ursuline College is sending four students and a staff member to Nanthomba Primary School to continue an established sewing partnership with H.E.L.P. that began in 2010.
A weekly conversation between your campus Marketing gals Brittney & Becca. TGIF!
In celebration of Women’s History Month, we are talking women who inspire us.
Ursuline Fashion Students to ‘Rock the Runway’ in Kent State University’s annual fashion show March 8
The 10th annual Rock the Runway fashion show is on Saturday, March 8th in the Kent Student Center Ballroom. Fashion is merely the catalyst to create a show that is fun and entertaining, while allowing Kent State students of all different majors an opportunity to showcase their talents. This year’s design theme is The Second British Invasion featuring New Wave music by British artists. Contestants will submit a line consisting of three pieces inspired by the theme. At least one representation of the British flag must be present in the line.
A total of 15 designers will rock this year’s runway, including a guest line from the Ursuline College fashion program. Under the direction of fashion program chair and Kent State alumni, Dr. Constance Korosec, the students will collaborate on the designs and model their line in the show.
