What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure to manage your time effectively. You will be surrounded with an abundance of opportunities and ways to be involved in the campus. From intramurals, to a job, to volunteering to weekend social activities, it's important to learn to say no. Do NOT join every club that asks you to. Do not focus on working so many hours that you miss out on fun activities with your friends because the relationships you form in college will last far longer than your GPA. At the same time, realize that you are paying for an education and that needs to be your main focus at this point in your life. Make the most out of it that you can since you will never get this time back. But also understand that a high GPA is not everything; employers are interested in your professional experiences, leadership roles and volunteer work. A balanced life is the key to succeeding.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The teachers here are so helpful in answering any questions you have. They are willing to meet with you whenever you need and work around your schedule to accomplish your goals. The student leadership is very strong and it's almost virtually impossible not to get involved in some form. The opportunities through internships, mentoring with local business professionals, and job options are huge. The faculty truly care about their students and their is a strong sense of community on campus. Everyone greets each other when passing and genuinely are interested in each others' lives. There is very strong support.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would find someway to convince myself to get proper habits in place such as sleep, eating right, exercise. Only now am I seeing how important they are and trying to form these kinds of habits in a busy college environment is really difficult. I'd also teach myself to be able to say, "no." Especially in the first semester of college, being busy isn't always a good thing. I wish I'd learned to balance everything in my life to keep myself healthy and destressed and how to prevent becoming overwhelmed by everything.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The required worship credits- because I feel they're trying to shove religion down the students' throats.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person that should attend this school is someone that likes small, family like environments and who has at least somewhat of a friendship with God or is not opposed to hearing about Him.

Best known for the International Rescue and Relief program, nursing, and physicians assistant program.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Relax and let yourself make friends. Don't be afraid to be yourself and don't compromise what you believe in. Even if other people think that you are crazy. Being true to yourself is what matters most. Try not to let family or friends pressure you to take on more than you can handle. Don't date exclusively your first year. Just get to know people. Accept people for who they are.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

It is best known for service to the community and to the world. Through student missionaries and the yearly taking a day off to impact the community. The next thing that the school is known for is it's friendliness and God centered campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice would be rather simple. Go to sleep by midnight, and don't go try to date the first girl you meet. Four years is enough time to pick out a girl, time is on your side. Also, take to heart what it means to "take the time so it doesn't take time" Every paper that you do the day before deserves an F. And the teacher always give you the answers, its just that they are in a thick book, so read.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing would have to be the people. Without relationships what's the point of knowledge? Wisdom means nothing if you sit up on a mountain all day.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Project impact day. All classes are canceled and the whole school goes out into the comunity and helps those in need. Also it's international rescue and relief degree program.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Vist the school and talk with other students within the degree program that you are interested in. Do not make your decision based on where your friends are going. Find a school that is going to work best for you and that is going to work with you. If a school is not willing to work with you before you go there then they are not worth your time. Have realistic expectations.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

My advisor is amazing! I love our division. I have no complants about the elementary education program. The first semester of freashman year they had us working in a class room to get a feel for the profession.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Go to a school were you know people and have friends. If you don't know anyone you wont enjoy yourself near as much. Also go to a school that is within a days drive so that you can go home on the weekends and for holidays. But it is also good to be far enough away from home that you learn to be responsible for yourself and dont depend on your parents for everything. One more thing that is very important is choosing classes that you enjoy and staying caught up with your work so that you have time to hang out with your friends or even get a part time job.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

not enough to do in your spare time

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Union has a great nursing program. They also are very involved with the community and do a lot of volunteer work. They science department also has a 99% rate of their students getting into medical school. Union also has a program called IRR (International Refuge and Relief). This basically is a degree that prepares students as paramedics and prepares them to act during natural or any kind of disasters. A lot of IRR graduates go onto medical school. Union is a Seventh Day Adventist affiliated college, but anybody is allowed to attend.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I believe that you should choose a college that fits you. Go to a school that offers what you want. Don't just go to a school that you've always wanted to go to. If you go there and it doesn't have your degree or it's not what you expected you lose time. When choosing a college make sure you visit. Get a feel for where you will be living and going to school. I think this is improtant so that you feel comfortable because I truly believe if you're not comfortable with your surroundings it's harder to succeed. Choosing a college is a hard thing but once you've found the one for you it's so exciting! You can make the most of your college experience by not being afraid to try new things. Make sure and go to join clubs. The memories you make are the memories you'll have forever. Also, don't forget to study because the grades you get you'll have those forever too. Also I'd like to mention that if you ever in doubt, just go for it! You don't want to have any regrets.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who likes a close nit community of students. Who enjoys getting to know everyone on campus, and who love learning. Throughout the year you get to know most of the people on this campus. The cool thing about being involved is that you get to know a lot of people. I would recommend this college to anyone looking for a great personal learning experience.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Life is what you make of it. While I feel that I could have received a better education elsewhere, I do not regret attending the school I did. Instead, I got to know people well, and opened my mind to their ideas. While I was unchallenged in the classroom, I utilized the internet and used bookstores to dig deeper into subjects that interested me and expand my worldview. I discovered resources in my community on my own, even though my school experience was culturally and socially limited. Regardless of where you are accepted or choose to attend school, concentrate on understanding the people around you and learning from them, and you will grow and succeed.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Too conservative and not academic enough. You will likely be unchallenged.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is concerned with receiving a good academic education, or encountering open minds.
