Get Moving! A note to young alumnae

gradsNo more semesters, no more finals, no more caffeinated, late-night studying for those finals. To quote our foundress St. Angela Merici, it is time to “get moving.”

As young alumnae, you are just starting out in the real world, establishing your career, finances, relationships, goals and your home. It is both a busy and exciting time in your life.

In 2014, keep in mind these words:

The Ursuline College Rebuilding Fund

“Do not be discouraged and confused about the     future.  Even though troubles and anxieties will come, these sorrows     will pass into joy.  Hold this for certain, that you will never be     abandoned in your needs.”

-St. Angela Merici

 

Dear Alumnae & Friends of Ursuline College,

As many of you know, Ursuline’s campus was affected by a tornado in the early morning of July 20.  The College was incredibly blessed that there was neither loss of life or injury.  The O’Brien Athletic Center was hit the most severe damage, where the exterior wall of the gym collapsed.  Additional damage occurred to the Dauby Science Center and the Besse Library with minor damage to an entrance in Pilla and the Mullen roof.  A large number of mature trees were uprooted or destroyed and various other areas of campus were impacted.

I am grateful for the outpour of heartfelt messages, prayers and offers of  assistance.  Through your encouragement I feel the strength of the College community.  I believe that together we will rebuild our campus to an even more vibrant state.  Because of the confidence and support of each of you, Ursuline was able to get through this crisis with dignity and grace.  Ursuline is a small community, but the College has a mighty heart and spirit that not even a tornado can dampen.

The Ursuline College Rebuilding Fund has been set up to help in our rebuilding efforts.  If you would like to contribute to the fund through the College’s website visit Rebuilding Fund or send a check made out to Ursuline College Rebuilding Fund.  If you have any questions, please contact Kevin Gladstone, Ursuline’s Vice President for Institutional Advancement at kgladstone@ursuline.edu or 440 646 8355.

May God Bless You,

Sister Diana Stano, O.S.U., Ph. D. ’68
