Case Western Reserve University (also known as Case Western Reserve, Case Western, Case, and CWRU) is a private research university in Cleveland, Ohio. The university was created in 1967 by the federation of Case Institute of Technology (founded in 1881 by Leonard Case Jr.) and Western Reserve University (founded in 1826 in the area that was once the Connecticut Western Reserve). TIME magazine described the merger as the creation of "Cleveland's Big-Leaguer" university.

In U.S. News & World Report's 2015 rankings, Case Western Reserve's undergraduate program ranked 37th among national universities. The University is associated with 16 Nobel laureates. Other notable alumni include Paul Buchheit, creator and lead developer of Gmail; Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist.org; Pete Koomen, the co-founder and CTO of Optimizely; and Peter Tippett, who developed the anti-virus software Vaccine, which Symantec purchased and turned into the popular Norton AntiVirus. Case Western Reserve is particularly well known for its medical school, business school, dental school, law school, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing (named for former U.S. Representative Frances P. Bolton), Department of Biomedical Engineering and its biomedical teaching and research capabilities. It is also a leading institution for research in electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering. Case Western Reserve is a member of the Association of American Universities.

The university is approximately five miles (8 km) east of downtown Cleveland in the neighborhood known as University Circle, a 550-acre (220 ha) area containing numerous other educational, medical, and cultural institutions. Case Western Reserve has a number of programs taught in conjunction with University Circle institutions, including the Cleveland Clinic, the University Hospitals of Cleveland, the Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veteran's Affairs Medical Center, Cleveland Institute of Music, the Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Institute of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and the Cleveland Play House. Severance Hall, home of the Cleveland Orchestra, is also on the Case Western Reserve University campus.

The famous Michelson-Morley interferometer experiment was conducted in 1887 in the basement of a campus dormitory by Albert A. Michelson of Case School of Applied Science and Edward W. Morley of Western Reserve University. This experiment proved the non-existence of the luminiferous ether and was later understood as convincing evidence in support of special relativity as proposed by Albert Einstein in 1905. Michelson became the first American to win a Nobel Prize in science. The commemorative Michelson-Morley Memorial Fountain as well as an Ohio Historical Marker are located on campus, near where the actual experiment was performed.

St Mary's Seminary

WickliffeTheology, Religion

St Mary's Seminary was established in 1850 by New Zealand's first Catholic bishop, Jean Baptiste François Pompallier. It operated until 1869.

From his arrival in 1838, Pompallier had worked energetically to train priests locally for his new mission. In April 1850 he returned from a trip to Europe with ten seminarians and established a seminary in Auckland to complete their formation. The completion of the training of the new seminarians was carried out quickly so that within five weeks all but one of them were ordained.

The seminary, which he named "St Mary's College", had Pompallier's Vicar General, the Rev. Louis Rozet, S.M., as its first Rector. It was first established on the North Shore of Auckland but was moved across Waitemata Harbour to Ponsonby in 1852.

The Seminary survived for 19 years, until Pompallier retired and left New Zealand in 1869. St Mary's Seminary educated at least twenty-four priests (not counting the initial ten seminarians?), all of them European and some of them already part-trained in Ireland or France.

The college also educated many Māori catechists, some of whom were encouraged to stay on for training for the priesthood. One, Keremeti Pine from Okaihau, was even sent to Rome, where for three years among seminarians from Africa and Asia, he spoke Latin and passable Italian. However, no Māori candidate for the priesthood was ordained at this time. The Māori catechists, however, proved to be the backbone of the development of the Catholic faith among the Māori during the remaining decades of the 19th century.

Ursuline College


Ursuline College is a small, Roman Catholic liberal arts women's-focused college in Pepper Pike, Ohio, United States. It was founded in 1871 by the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland and is one of the oldest institutions of higher education for women in the United States. Ursuline College offers a diverse spectrum of undergraduate and graduate studies within the Catholic tradition of education. The College offers 30 undergraduate, 11 graduate programs, and a Doctorate of Nursing Practice. Ursuline College currently has 706 undergraduate and 530 graduate students. Although Ursuline College is considered to be a college that focuses primarily on the liberal arts, the institution also offers courses such as nursing and business administration. The school is widely recognized for its Art Therapy program, Breen School of Nursing, and teaching certification program.

The campus is situated approximately 10 miles outside of Cleveland and 30 miles outside of Akron. Ursuline's campus is quite spacious and meticulously landscaped, featuring 12 educational buildings, most recently constructed Sister Diana Stano Athletic Center, the Parker Hannifin Center for the Creative Healing Arts & Sciences, and the Bishop Anthony M. Pilla Center.

In July of 2013, the O'Brien Athletic Center was destroyed by a tornado that ripped through the campus. With generous donations from the community as well as insurance payments, a new athletic center was completed for Fall 2015. The state-of-the-art Sister Diana Stano Athletic Center offers a fitness space overlooking the beautiful campus, an expansive and welcoming gymnasium, shower and locker rooms for visiting and home athletic teams, offices, and conference rooms. The Parker Hannifin Center for the Healing Arts and Sciences, also completed for Fall 2015 semester, provides top level educational equipment and classrooms for Nursing and Art Therapy students. Both buildings provide a beautiful and serene environment for Ursuline students and faculty.

The Pilla Center is quintessentially the essence of the Ursuline College Campus, acting as the social catalyst for students to meet and exchange ideas in the confines of a spectacularly engineered building. The main gathering space has a delightful view of the lake, and is two stories high with crystalline glass windows on adjacent sides, and a luminescent stained glass window that faces the main quadrangle. The building provides a space for commuters on the go, as well as resident students and faculty, for a place to converse or grab some sustenance on the way to class. The new and improved dining hall, staffed by locally owned and family-driven Metz Culinary Management, offers a food court with a variety of healthy and delicious options from a main menu, a la carte choices, and a economical meal plan for students. Food is locally sourced wherever possible, and many menu items are often prepared homemade from scratch.

Additionally, the college's Florence O'Donnell Wasmer Gallery is host to changing display of both professional and student artwork exhibits, and remains open for public consumption Tuesday through Sunday in the afternoon.
