Union College-Barbourville Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I really wish I would have known how little there is to do around school and town. I'm a city girl, and very outgoing, so not having anything to do isn't really my style. I like to be out and about, meeting new people, and now I know every students name at my school, and there's really nobody else to meet. It's a town with a college, and 5 resturaunts, with nothing else.


I wish I had known that it was very small and everyone knows everyone's business. This school is similar to a private High School. I wish I had known to lay low and not be caught up in so much drama. Nothing else really came as a surpirse.


How great it truely is.


I wish I would of known how to apply for more money. I don't know if I will be able to finish,because it is expensive to attend here, and I only have a partial scholarship. I wish I was more aware of ways to pay for my college. Having a single working mother, its getting harder each semester to come back. I also wish I would of known that out of state schooling was going to cost me so much, I probably would of focused more on a in state college.
