A Century of Saints

Sister Rose O'Donnell


Sister Rosie O'DonellSister Rose O'Donnell personified the value of the love of learning. Unlike most of the Sisters who built up the College, she did not receive her bachelor's degree here, but at Catholic University in Washington DC. She earned two master's degrees; one from Catholic University and one from Columbia University, where she also pursued her doctorate in teacher education. She was dedicated to training excellent teachers, through her work as chair of the education department and through the many faculty workshops she conducted. She also served as dean of the College and was beloved for her kindness and good humor. She died in 1982.
