Chronological History of Marywood

<< 1913 1914 1915 1916 1917 >>

Marywood College welcomes its first class of students.

Renovations are made to the Seminary Building to accommodate the thirty-four students in the first College class.

The Teresian Dramatic Society produces the morality play Eager Heart, Christmas.

St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Teresa of Avila, and St. Brigid are selected as the College patrons, and the Feast of the Immaculate Conception is designated as the patronal feast day. The school motto, "Sanctitas, Scientia, Sanitas" ("Holiness, Knowledge, Health") is formulated by the Reverend Francis Donnelly, S.J., an eminent scholar and a former student of the I.H.M. Sisters. The seal of the Congregation is adapted for use by the new institution, with the words "Marywood College" replacing "Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
