Mr. Greg Mertz gets to work in one of the most exciting places on Ursuline's campus: the I.D.E.A. Hub. As the Director of Innovation & Design, Mr. Mertz helps students dream and create using our 3D printers, a room-scale virtual reality set-up, vinyl cutters, sewing machines, laser cutters, and much more. In addition to an abundance of equipment for designing and building things, the iHub features wobbly chairs, writable walls, and an environment that inspires creativity.

Ursuline Academy Choral Group and the Xaverian Chorus gathered for a collaborative retreat in late September on the Xaverian campus. The students began the day with prayer and reflection followed by some “Getting to know you” icebreakers. The two groups then gathered in the music center as one chorus to begin learning some of the music they will be singing at a collaborative concert on January 16th.
