Join Ursuline College to celebrate the Historic Costume Study Collection’s 30th Anniversary!
Constance Korosec, Ph.D. envisioned the collection to serve as a hands-on learning tool so students could feel, research and delve into fashion history. This dream made the collection what it is today. With more than 3,500 pieces of 20th Century American fashion donated by Greater Clevelanders, the College’s Historic Costume Study Collection is the “best closet in Cleveland.”

Economists are sometimes compared to meteorologists in that both sometimes try to predict upcoming events, and both manage to do an acceptable job at this, but occasionally make mistakes. Neither can predict future events with complete certainty, as unforseen events tend to have an effect on the outcomes they are trying to predict. For economists, it may be a change in consumer confidence in a far off country that injects “error” into a prediction, while for a meteorologist, small changes, sometimes described as a “butterfly moving its wings”, can cause their predications to be incorrect.
I found myself thinking of this as Ursuline College approaches the one year anniversary of a destructive meteorological event, the arrival of a tornado to campus. This was a tornado that destroyed our athletic center, damaged much of the campus and radically changed plans for the future of the college.
Ursuline College will be participating in the global march on May 22nd to support the #BringBackOurGirls Campaign on campus, 4:30pm-5:30pm to call for the release of the kidnapped Nigerian girls and to demand that every person’s human rights be honored.
“As the only women’s College in Ohio, we were eager to participate in the efforts to bring awareness to this issue, said Gina Messina-Dysert, Ursuline’s Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies. According to Messina-Dysert, an alum thought Ursuline would be the perfect place to hold the march.
The march will begin on Ursuline’s campus in the quad.
