Union University is overall a great school. The student body is made up of mostly homeschoolers/private school kids. Some classes are average and some are really special, depending on the professor. The campus is nice and walkable, very pretty and clean looking. There is a large music department and lots of faith based activity there. All the buildings are cold inside, but that is pretty typical of a college campus. There are places to shop and eat within walking distance as well.
I love this school. The academics are quite rigorous especially if you choose a major in the medical field. There are always events going on, so you'll never be bored just sitting in your dorm. The people that go to this college are so kind and respectful. the professors and faculty are super invested in your education which is very beneficial.
I am in love with the way this school is teaching me to love - to love others, to love beauty and art and joy around me, to love God, and to love learning. This is a special group of people who are not just here for degrees, but want to milk college for all it is worth. By that I mean the students and professors, because both are open to learning together. Is it a perfect place? No, but I feel like it is a school that is striving to always excel. This is a place where I can come and learn to be not just a good worker or writer or manager of something someday; it is shaping me to be a better human, and to think about the world in entirely new ways. It is comfortable to learn here - the challenge is rigorous but not crushing, and professors are here for you to provide a cushion and comfort when we need it.
It is an incredible place to learn and grow in Christ. The professors truly care about your well-being and growth as a person. The classics will grow your mind and heart. The community is close-knit, the dorms are awesome, and the library is beautiful! Love this place! Home away from home.

I have pondered this question on multiple ocassions already. If I could go back in time to my senior year of high school, I would tell myself to finish applying to the Air Force Academy and to go there. I had gotten far in the application but never completed it, and I think I will always regret that. It's not that I dislike Union University, but I feel like I have missed something by not going to the Academy.
I believe that I am among a great campus of servants of God who are among the students and faculty and it is a priveledge to serve with them.
I do not know of anything that is negative about my school. I love Union University and all the students and staff. This school is very welcoming and feels like home.
Without a doubt, the best thing is that we are Christ-centered. The teachers are wonderful at what they do, because they love the Lord. Union is a place that I can learn, have fun, and meet amazing people. I truly think that the Christ-centered atmosphere makes the world of a difference at our school.
An encouraging,community based environment.
Union University is best known for its nursing program and its widely diverse student body.
The classes are small which give you a really great student-teacher ratio. The dorms are incredible; they are essentially appartments each with four seperate rooms, two bathrooms, a kitchenette, and a living room. The teachers here really care about their students and get to know them each by name. They are experts in their feild. The university strives to and succeedes at upholding their commitment to students and their missions statement as a university.
I wish I had known the level of expectation from the school. They are very academically strong and they want their graduates to come out of there knowing they received the best possible education.

The prestige of the school.
The financial aide department is overwhelmed with students because let's face it, shcool is darn expensive, so it was hard to get information from them in a timely manner, but they do work with students and try their best to do whatever it takes to keep them at the school.
If you are looking to party and do drugs this school is not for you. The majority of the students here value the money spent for thier education, and they focus very hard on their studies. This school has strong rules against drugs and alcohol.
To an extent, but there is much more variety than that.
Professors are extremely approachable and very welcoming. They really want you to learn and will help you till you understand.
Academics prepared me well for graduate school, and many friends were well prepared for professional schools.
most students get involved with the Go Trips in some way, and many are involved in Greek Life. Club sports and inter mural sports are very popular, as well as organizations centered around their majors. There are many small bible studies that people get involved with and The Freshman Life Groups are worth getting involved with as well.
All the guys are southern baptist, guitar playing, christian studies majors
All the girls go to find their future spouse and are education or psychology majors
Awesome class size, diverse academics, great people, excellent sports programs, great school with awesome dorms.
