I completed my Master's degree while working two part-time jobs and attending class full-time. I understand the dedication and perseverance it takes to balance life and school. Although it was not easy, earning my Master's degree was self-rewarding. I learned to be a life-long learner and to bring my education and experiences to the classroom and workplace. I look forward to working with you throughout the application process!Education:

Everyone at Ursuline is so friendly and helpful! You can't walk down the hall without someone saying 'hi' to you. Even though Ursuline's campus is small and intimate, there is always something going on. From a fashion show and an athletic game, to a bake sale and blood drive, there is always a fun activity to attend.

Megan Schauer, Graduate Admission Student WorkerAbout me:
I am a Sophomore at Ursuline and my major is Nursing. I graduated from Eastlake North High School and plan on becoming a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. I also work at the Willoughby Dairy Queen, so school and work are my main activities. When I can catch a break, I LOVE to shop and do pretty much anything that is fun!What I like best about Ursuline College
: While I am here I actually feel like a real person and I always feel welcome, never as an outcast or just a number. Everyone at Ursuline is so nice and friendly and are always willing to help.
