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.
Madeleine (Maddy) Outman has been promoted to co-head track and field coach, Ursuline College Athletic Director Cindy McKnight announced Wednesday (May 28) morning. Outman has worked with the cross country and track and field programs at UC since August of 2012.
Head cross country coach Ralph White will serve as the co-head track and field coach.
Over the past two school years Outman, a USATF Level One certified coach, has helped develop numerous Arrow runners and her hard work culminated in the outdoor track and field team capturing the first Great Midwest Athletic Conference title in school history in April. She helped sophomores Nicole Burlinson and Bea Indurain earn conference Track Athlete of the Year and Field Athlete of the Year honors, respectively.
Ursuline College sophomore Nicole Burlinson placed third in the country with a time of 2:08.64 in the 800 meter run at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Championships on Saturday (May 24) night. By virtue of placing in the top-eight, she earned All-American distinction. Back in March, she earned All-American status for her efforts during the indoor season.
“Nicole loves competition,” coach Ralph White said. “A lot of kids freak out and get nervous, but she thrives when the spotlight is on. Our kids are very, very good about stepping up. They rise to the occasion – the bigger the meet, the better they do.”
