Ursuline College is a small, Roman Catholic liberal arts women's college in Pepper Pike, Ohio, United States. It was founded in 1871 by the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland and is one of the oldest institutions of higher education for women in the United States. Ursuline College offers a diverse spectrum of undergraduate and graduate studies within the Catholic tradition of education. The College offers 30 undergraduate, 11 graduate programs, and a Doctorate of Nursing Practice. Although Ursuline College is considered to be a college that focuses primarily on the liberal arts, the institution also offers courses such as nursing and business administration. The school is widely recognized for its Art Therapy program, Breen School of Nursing, and teaching certification program.

The campus is situated approximately 10 miles outside of Cleveland and 30 miles outside of Akron. Ursuline's campus is quite spacious and meticulously landscaped, featuring 12 educational buildings such as the Matthew J. O'Brien Recreation Complex, and the newer [2001] Bishop Anthony M. Pilla Center. The Pilla Center is quintessentially the essence of the Ursuline College Campus, acting as the social catalyst for students to meet and exchange ideas in the confines of a spectacularly engineered building. The main gathering space has a delightful view of the lake, and is two stories high with crystalline glass windows on adjacent sides, and a luminescent stained glass window that faces the main quadrangle. The building provides a space for commuters on the go, as well as resident students and faculty, for a place to converse or grab some sustenance on the way to class. Additionally, the college's Florence O'Donnell Wasmer Gallery is host to changing display of both professional and student artwork exhibits, and remains open for public consumption Tuesday through Sunday in the afternoon.

Athletics

Ursuline College teams participate as a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division II.[1] The Arrows are a member of the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC), but formerly were a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics' now-defunct American Mideast Conference (AMeC) until the 2011-12 season. Women's sports include basketball, bowling, cross country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball.
