Ever wonder who our first alumna was?
Estella Smith Cunnea was the first graduate of Ursuline College. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1872 and later attended Columbia University. In 1900, she organized and was elected first president of the Ursuline Alumnae Association. She was the mother of four children. She died in 1939 and is buried in Lake View Cemetery.
