Union College-Schenectady Top Questions

What kind of person should not attend this school?


The type of student that shouldn't attend this school is one who is a slow learner. Becuase Union is a trimester school, where you take 3 classes per trimester with only 10 weeks per term the classes go by in the blink of an eye! It's very hard to adapt to and if you are a slow learner, by the time you would have already learned one thing you will have needed to learn 5 more things. Our classes also require much more out of class work becuase we only have about 50 minutes of each class.


You need to have a strong interest in SOMETHING...whether it's drinking, sports, being active in school activities or having the will to go outside and see what the community has to offer without being scared of going alone...otherwise, it can be deathly boring! Know that being in the library during finals is almost a cool thing because this school is BIG on getting As but also BIG on partying...if you're more of a loner or have a hard time making friends, I don't know if you would enjoy this school.
