Union College is a very welcoming place and I believe that you will find a home there if you choose to go there. There are always campus activities going on and other things to help you stay involved with your school. There are some ares that could be improved, but overall I would recommend Union College to students trying to find a school that they can call home.

Heather - 02/12/2020

Small town small college. You will get to know everyone on campus and just about everyone in town. Small school means small class sizes and one on one learning experiences. All of the professors that I have had have been very interested in me as a student and focused on making me succeed. Over all I believe it is a great place to get an education, just be prepared to live the small town life.
