Remembering Mary Manse College

Posted 5/1/2019

WGTE Toledo Stories, broadcasted “Remembering Mary Manse College on Thursday, March 28, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.

At the premiere showing on March 10, 2019, members of the Mary Manse College Board, the Ursuline Community, faculty, alums and friends of Mary Manse College gathered to celebrate and remember.
The college was founded by the Ursuline Sisters at the request of then Bishop of Toledo, Samuel Stritch in 1922, as a liberal arts college for women. The school began with thirty students and in 1926 was recognized by the State of Ohio as a degree-granting institution. Accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools was received in 1933. The school operated as a women’s college until 1971 when it became coeducational. Although the college closed in 1975 the spirit and memories live on in the hearts of the alumni.
Pictures are included here of some of the highlights of the afternoon presentation. Look for “Remembering Mary Manse College” in future WGTE Toledo Stories.
