Union College-Schenectady Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The career center is not as helpful if you are a science major.


Union didn't make it clear that they didn't accept certain transfer credits. I took 5 AP exams in high school and one other college course, but I only received credit for one of the AP courses. The only information Union provided was that you needed a certain grade for the course to be accepted as credit. There was nothing that stated the college did not accept specific courses, such as AP Physics B.


All social events revolve around fraternities and sororities. There are also very limited volunteer opportunities.


Convincing students to put their ideas and beliefs into action to actually make a difference, there is a tendency towards apathy despite intellectuallism.




The lack of diversity among the kinds of students attending.


The only social activity are frat parties. If you like them, great. If you don't, good luck. If you don't drink ro dod drug, also good luck. It will be fustrating trying to sleep in ANY freshman dorm because there will AWLAYS be a party in someones room.


I'm not the only smart kid anymore. In high school there was only a group of kids that were really smart, got good grades, the honors group. But now, everyone around me is smart and its frustrating that I can't boast that as an individual quality anymore. But its nice to know they accepted me at a school with so many intelligent students.
