Study War No More: Our Right to Voice

Cross Fence

By Stephanie Pratt BA ’13, Graduate Admission Coordinator

For as long as I recall, the First Amendment of the United States Constitution included the right to speak freely and peacefully assemble. Today, however, I sit confused, staring at a plea made by Father Roy Bourgeois, leader of the SOA Watch. This plea is a result of a permit refusal and the silencing of a beautiful and necessary movement. This movement, which is very dear to my heart, as well as many others of the Ursuline community, is the progression to close the School of the Americas.

New college and career initiatives coming to Ohio high schools

DSC_0927

Perhaps you’ve heard: beginning this school year, the State of Ohio will roll out great new initiatives to impact the postsecondary success of our high school graduates.  When this year’s HS freshmen are juniors, for starters, they’ll be able to take the ACT or SAT for free.

While test waivers existed before for the neediest students, this effort, I think, sets expectations for all students to evaluate college as an option, and reduces barriers to college access. What’s more is that the OGT is also going away, and students who score at a college-readiness benchmark on the ACT or SAT (or) earn passing scores on new exams offered at the end of 7 major core courses (or) complete an approved licensure program and job assessment for career readiness will qualify for graduation in this state.

year_anniversary

By Kevin Gladstone, Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Ursuline College

Just one year ago today, we were preparing for a long-awaited groundbreaking for the Center for the Creative and Healing Arts & Sciences.  All seemed to be right with the Ursuline College world:  funds had been raised, building designed, and our campus immersed in joyful anticipation of the coming school year.

Mother Nature had other plans. July 20, 2013 will live forever in the memory of those associated with Ursuline College.  Early that morning, in the blink of an eye, a tornado swept through our beautiful, tranquil campus and tore a hole in our heart.
