About chatfieldcollege

In 1845 The Ursuline Sisters came from France and founded a chapter in Brown County, Ohio. They were led by Julia Chatfield, the namesake of the college. From little more than a single log cabin that the sister built themselves, the convent grew to hold nearly 150 women. In 1958, the sisters opened the Ursuline Teacher Training Institute in order to train the women to better serve the community. In 1971 Chatfield College opened to the public and has been growing ever since. With more than 500 students, Chatfield offers a big college education with a small town feel.
