Spreading cheer: Ursuline serves women and children at Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center holiday event


The Marketing Department represented the College last night at the Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center‘s annual Twinkle Shop, an event for families living at the agency’s shelter to shop for holiday gifts for one another, have a delicious meal and play like crazy. The Marketing gals took photos of each family with Santa and ran a craft table. Moms and their children decorated frames to display their new photos!

Thanks for having us, DVCAC! For more information about the Center, visit dvcac.org.


Merry Christmas – Ursuline Style!



Celebrate the Season: Ursuline Style

The countdown to Christmas is on! Check back every day as we reveal a treat to celebrate the season – Ursuline style.


Day 1: Hello December! It’s time to bring the Christmas decor out!
Day 2: How did your first day back on campus feel after the Thanksgiving extra-long weekend? This is how we felt this morning… clinomania (an excessive desire to stay in bed.)
Day 3: How does the song go? Someone one is waiting for you underneath the _________.
Day 4: Red is the new black. What represents Christmas more than red holly?
Day 5: What’s on your wish list this year?
Day 6: Cozy up beside a fireplace tonight with your loved ones.

Day 7: There’s nothing like family. This holiday season we are so thankful for our Ursuline family.
Day 8: Nostalgia. What’s your most memorable childhood Christmas moment or story?
Day 9: Give. Have you started your holiday shopping yet?
Day 10: Reflect. Take time this holiday season to reflect on the year behind you and look forward to more good times ahead.
Day 11: Balter: to dance artlessly, without particular grace or skill but always with enjoyment.
Day 12: What’s your favorite holiday beverage?
Day 13: Unconditional love, friendship and respect, always.
Day 14: Snow. We live in Cleveland. Snow’s a fact of life. Embrace it!
Day 15: Do you believe in magic?
Day 16: Laughter is the best medicine.
Day 17: Grab a book from the Ralph M. Besse Library and snuggle up with a cup of cider or hot cocoa tonight.
Day 18: The Spirit within me salutes the Spirit in you.
Day 19: When you’re in the thick of preparing for Christmas – shopping, planning, working – remember to treat yourself with a break every once and a while.
Day 20: Quaintrelle is a woman who emphasizes a life of passion expressed through personal style, leisurely pastimes, charm, and cultivation of life’s pleasures. Sounds like an Ursuline College woman.
Day 21: Play. Throw some snow around and bring out your toboggan.
Day 22: Create something new today.
Day 23: O Christmas Tree


Social: #UrsulatheElf Arrives for the Holiday Season

The holiday season is upon us. To brighten the season the Ursuline College Library has adopted an elf we have named Ursula. We hope she will fill the hearts of the students, faculty and staff with holiday cheer and nostalgia! Ursula will be watching over the activities taking place in the library, and she will be listening to learn of other activities taking place around campus. It is believed that each night Ursula will do her part and fly back to the North Pole to share the Ursuline’s adventures.

Each day Ursula will choose a new spot to observe. You never know where she will be. We encourage students, faculty and staff to come to the library and look for Ursula. Once you have found Ursula, take a picture of or with her and share it with us, including the hashtag #UrsulatheElf.

Begin looking for Ursula on Monday, December 2nd in the Ursuline College Library!
