There are so many ways that our community shares their time, talent, and treasure with Ursuline. One of the greatest gifts that we can receive, though, is when an alumna chooses to send her own daughter to Ursuline. Allowing Ursuline to continue to build into your family is truly an honor. Thank you to the many families who have sent multiple generations of young women through Ursuline.
Though it wasn't possible to host our annual Generations Brunch for current students and alumnae family members last year, we are happy to share a few alumnae families here along with what sharing the Laurel Legacy means to many of them.

Ursuline has left a legacy of valuing Sisterhood, the bond between women who love and accept each other and share the common goal of striving toward their highest potential.
UA created a bond between all of us as being an important part of our lives enriched by friendships that still last today!

I feel blessed to share the Ursuline traditions with my two daughters. It's not just the world class education but the community, sisterhood and shared experiences that will be memories they will carry for a lifetime.

My parents sacrificed to send me to Ursuline and it changed me into the strong, faithful and successful woman I am today and I wanted to pass that on to all three of my girls more than anything!

Ursuline was a place that allowed me to develop into a strong, independent, caring woman. Being able to introduce my daughter to an environment that is unthreatening for a young girl has meant the world to me. I can't wait to see her flourish at UA!
Brown County meant so much to Nana (Anna). She was so proud her daughter-in-law and granddaughter went to Ursuline. We are sure she is in heaven delighted that Kayla will be the 4th generation at UA! All of us are so excited for Kayla to begin this new journey of making lifelong friends and acquiring a love of learning.

My mom, Gail Glaser Nordeman, passed away in September 2019 at 82. She was a faithful Catholic who loved her family fiercely. She was committed to sending all 5 of her daughters to Ursuline. Kasey is the only granddaughter to carry on the UA legacy. I loved my years at UA and know that they helped to form me into the person I am today. Sending Kasey to UA means a great deal to me and I send her as a tribute to my mom's love and devotion to the Ursuline tradition. I can't wait to see Kasey grow and succeed at Ursuline.
UA all the way!
I loved my experience at Ursuline. It prepared me for college and life! My daughter also loves UA and all of her friends that she has made. I can't believe she is a senior! I love all of the traditions.
