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.”
St. John College graduate, Dr. Christine Wynd, Ph.D., RN ’74SJ, Dean of the Breen School of Nursing and Strawbridge Professor since 2007, recently left the College to accept the position of President and Dean of The Mount Carmel College of Nursing in Columbus, Ohio.

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’s Master of Arts in Art Therapy and Counseling department proudly presents the sixth juried art show displaying the work of art therapists from the greater Cleveland area. The Opening Reception will be on Friday, June 13, 5 PM to 9 PM in the Florence O’Donnell Wasmer Gallery on the Ursuline College campus, 2550 Lander Road, Pepper Pike, Ohio. The Wasmer Gallery is located adjacent to the Fritzsche Building at the western edge of the campus. The front and patio entrances are wheelchair-accessible, with free parking available in the adjacent lot.
The theme of the show underlines the therapeutic use of art and the power of images to heal. The work encompasses a wide range of media including drawings, paintings, prints, mixed media and ceramics. The show features the work of art therapists, faculty members, alumnae and students of the College’s Art Therapy and Counseling program.
Ursuline welcomes seasoned nursing administrator Patricia Sharpnack, DNP, RN, CNE, NEA-BC, as the College’s new Dean of the Breen School of Nursing. Sharpnack will begin her position in July.
“I look forward to the opportunity to continue to contribute to the high standards, creative and relevant approaches to nursing education and furthering the academic partnerships that are the hallmarks of The Breen School of Nursing. I am honored to be able to contribute to the excellent legacy of this College and school of nursing,” Sharpnack said.

We love to celebrate the lives of inspirational women. Today, on what what have been her 92 birthday, we acknowledge the immensley talented but humanly flawed actress and singer Judy Garland.
Garland was born June 10, 1922, in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. She signed a movie contract with MGM at the age of 13. In 1939, she scored one of her greatest on-screen successes with The Wizard of Oz. Nearly 40 years after her tragic death at age 47, Garland continues to maintain a devoted following.
What do starry skies, a rising monolith, Teddy Roosevelt, and a revolutionary federal act have in common this June 8th?
