With over 3,500 pieces of 20th Century American fashion donated by Greater Clevelanders, Ursuline College’s Historic Costume Study Collection has been dubbed the “Best Closet in Cleveland.” In honor of its upcoming 30th Anniversary, the College’s 15th Annual Faculty Lecture Series will focus on the collection. Constance Korosec, Ph.D., Chair and Professor of Fashion and Historic Costume Study Collection Curator will present the lecture Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 7PM in the Mullen Little Theater at Ursuline College.
“Each year, all of us at Ursuline look forward to the Faculty Lecture Series, when we can share our fabulous faculty’s expertise with the greater Cleveland community. This spring we are especially excited to focus on our fashion program, which will be celebrating a hallmark anniversary this fall. Korosec is a well-known speaker and her lecture promises to be both educational and enjoyable,” said JoAnne Podis, Ph.D., Ursuline College’s Vice President of Academic Affairs.
A weekly conversation between your campus Marketing gals Brittney & Becca. TGIF!
Becca: Did you see Tina Fey is producing a new show about women’s college’s?
Britt: Yeah, I heard, read a little about it. There’s not much info out about the show yet. I can’t wait to watch. Anything Tina Fey does turns to gold.
Becca: All we know is that it’s about a women’s college that goes co-ed. And it’s a comedy. But, you’re right, it will be gold.
Britt: “That’s gold, Jerry! It’s gold!” Did I tell you Ursuline received a tweet from Chatham University in Pittsburg? There is talk of the college going co-ed, so a student reached out for our support against it.
Most people remember forever one teacher that made an impressionable difference in their lives. A few years into a career in human resources, Ursuline College alumna Neha Mehra ’13 decided she wanted to be this person for Cleveland children. This is when Mehra entered Ursuline College’s Master Apprenticeship Program (MAP).
With a deep commitment to urban teaching, Mehra began student teaching during her first semester at Citizen’s Academy with the Cleveland Urban Teacher Residency Placement (CUTR). This program is a partnership between Ursuline and Breakthrough Charter Schools.
Ursuline College has taken the first steps to transforming the campus with a ceremonial demolition Tuesday (March 25) morning. The symbolic demonstration ushers in the beginning of the College’s largest construction project in over 40 years.
The College recently reached a $5.3 million settlement with the College’s insurance provider after the O’Brien Athletic Center was destroyed by a tornado that struck the campus last July. A new $10 million facility constructed to accommodate the needs of Ursuline’s 1,500 students and College community will replace the original athletic center, constructed as a recreational facility for a then student population of 400.

Recently Susan Sarandon was asked if she is a feminist and her response left many asking if perhaps we are moving towards a post-feminist world. Of course, the very fact that Sarandon was asked if she is a feminist well demonstrates that gender politics continue (certainly, men are not asked such questions).
According to Sarandon, “I think of myself as a humanist because I think it’s less alienating to people who think of feminism as being a load of strident bitches.” She went on to explain that “feminist” is an “old-fashioned word” and is actually used to minimize women and girls.
