A weekly conversation between your campus Marketing gals Brittney & Becca. TGIF! 

After taking a “Good Friday” break last week, we are talking Cleveland: Why Becca loves her hometown and how Britt is growing to feel the same about her new home. We had the opportunity to grab lunch in Ohio City with the blogger behind I Heart Cleveland, Charity D’Amato –  aka, a fabulous resource for all things Cleveland! Below is the first installment of our two-part series featuring Charity. Part two to come soon!

April is #PoetryMonth. We are celebrating our favorite rhyming writings, and our English degrees. We firmly believe that studying and teaching poetry is relevant, especially in today’s world of texting abbreviations, hashtags and emojis.

Becca: Did you see Tina Fey is producing a new show about women’s college’s?
Britt: Yeah, I heard, read a little about it. There’s not much info out about the show yet. I can’t wait to watch. Anything Tina Fey does turns to gold.
Becca: All we know is that it’s about a women’s college that goes co-ed. And it’s a comedy. But, you’re right, it will be gold.
Britt: “That’s gold, Jerry! It’s gold!” Did I tell you Ursuline received a tweet from Chatham University in Pittsburg? There is talk of the college going co-ed, so a student reached out for our support against it.

Fridays with B&B: the “F” word

A weekly conversation between your campus Marketing gals Brittney & Becca. TGIF! 

Becca: Where do we start?
Britt: Hold on one sec – I’m posting a photo (Instagram).
*Becca sips her chai tea latte… (we are writing from a local coffee shop).
Britt: Ok, so – feminism. First, let’s follow up on last week’s convo. Have you read about the backlash #banbossy is getting?
Becca: I did – I saw the one article about a Dad who said he will continue to call his daughter bossy when she acts bossy – and the same goes for his son.
Britt: I haven’t read that piece. I’m interested in the conversations about #banbossy not being important because there are so many other pressing women’s issues (education, violence against women, etc.). Which is true, but it’s also not good if we are not talking about how young girls and women are perceived in terms of language, double standards.

Fridays with B&B: women who inspire us

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.

Becca: It started with a mood board. There’s a lot of women up there.
Britt: I’m glad we are celebrating Women’s History Month this year. I don’t remember doing anything for it last year since we both just started at Ursuline.
Becca: I agree! Let’s jump right into it. If you were to dress up as your favorite influential woman, who would it be?
Britt: Hm. That’s really tough. My mom?
Becca: You would dress up like your mom?
Britt: Yeah! She’s a babe!
Becca: No, no, let’s return to the moms later. A historical, well-known woman.
Britt: OK. I gotcha. I’m not sure. I do not look like many of the women who deeply inspire me. Does that matter?
Becca: Not at all. You’re capturing her essence.
Britt: Definitely Billie Holiday, then.
