Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Union is best know for its character. People there are just different. Everyone is equal and treated that way.

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

Most schools offer the same degrees. Not all schools offer the same experiences. Find somewhere that has a unique experience that not everyone is going to have. Whether it be through the setting or evironment on campus, find somewhere to call your own.

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

First, decide what you want from your college experience. What matters most to you? The education? The people? Social experience? The price? These questions will guide you towards certain schools. Once you know that, you can list places that seem to fit what you are seeking. Next, visiting the school is vital. Ask the people who are meeting with you specific questions - ones that an unclear answer cannot be given. For example, if racial diversity is key for you, do not ask, "Is your campus racially diverse?" Instead, ask "What ethnicities are represented here and what percent of the school do they make up?" After all, their job is to make the school appealing to everyone, but no school can truly appeal to everybody. Secondly, but even more importnantly, seek out a chance to talk to the students, especially ones you identify with in some way - area of study, faith, ethnicity, economically - whatever you value about yourself. These people are not motivated professionally in your choice, and therefore have no problems telling you the flaws. They also may know some reasons to come that matter to you that the school did not mention or not know were important to you.

What's unique about your campus?

There are two aspects about this school that are amazing. As a Christian, this is a place where you are encouraged to see how faith and the world are not only not exclusive, but actually inseperable. However, no matter what your faith, you will find a place that wants you to suceed and will literally bend over backwards to help you do so!

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

The atmoshpere. You can ask anyone - student, professor or staff - for help and they will either help you themeselves or tell you someone who can. At this school, no one will hold you back!

Deciding where to go to college is hard and big decision. For parents I suggest letting their children decide where to go and support them even thought you may not agree because whether you what to admit it or not they are on their way to becoming an adult! Also let them know that whatever they choose to do for a degree you support them, I do suggest giving them a time limit so they do not take advantage of you! And the first year/semester I think it is okay to hold their hand a bit, but make your son or daughter take responsibility, they may not like it but it will be good for them in the long run. For the student I would say your parents will not be able to hold your hand for ever....get over it your an ADULT now! Look at colleges that will really care about you and make sure the professors care about helping you because they will be the ones handing out your grades! Also do not take advantage of your parents, thank them for the opportunity you have to go to college, most people don't get this chance!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who likes to hike and ski, because those places are few and far between :) When I want to do those things I have to drive a ways.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

This school is christ centered, people focused, excellent drive and I believe that God has me here for a purpose so just pray and he will lead you to the right school.

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

I would advice parents and students to visit several colleges/universities and be prepared to ask questions at each school. I also believe that families should pray about the decision of the college that best suits the student. Finding the right fit is important to a successful college career.

Describe the students at your school.

Most of the students at Union are Christians who actually live out the faith. They are studious and seek to better themselves.

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

?All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired.? This quote by the great reformer Martin Luther speaks to the question at hand. The best advice anyone could give concerning a decision is to pray and seek God?s will. When choosing a college, the student and the parents should consider things such as majors offered, school and city population, and distance from home. For obvious reasons the college that is chosen should offer the desired major and, if the student is undecided, it should offer a variety. Some people are not used to large classes and cities or being away from home. For this reason population and distance are important. Once the student has chosen a school, it is vital that involvements in local campus activities are sought after. This is an excellent way to make friends and gain social skills, whether it is in the form of Greek life, clubs, etc. Be engaged in as many opportunities as possible while still making good grades. College is a great time in life so take full advantage of all that it has to offer.

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

The meal plans are expensive and it is required that every student living on campus must buy at least 100 meals. The food is not very good either.

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

I would advise parents and students to choose the college that is very strong in the student's major of choice. I would also encourage them to choose a college that follows their values and beliefs. Picking a college with a very safe campus and a sufficient amount of security is very important as well. Choosing a college where the students are similar to the prospective student, as far as goals and personal choices, makes it easier for the new student to adjust. It would also be important to choose a college that has access to tutoring and activities to enhance their learning skills. And finally, a parent and student should choose a college that simply feels comfortable to them. The faculty and staff should be very respectful, helpful, and have a joyful spirit when it comes to serving their needs.

What's unique about your campus?

It is a great academic school because it integrates faith and learning. Our school's nursing program is great as well.

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

My advice would be to start looking in your Junior year of High School. Begin by focusing on what your strengths are academically; then choice size; then I recommend the choice of area. The reason I would focus on my strengths first is so I will be choosing a school in which I can fit academically, a university in which I feel I am challanged intellectually, and emotionally. Next focus would be size because I was home schooled; and I feel a large campus would be too invasive, too cold, just too big. Last of all my choice would intell the area. I love my family, so I want to be away but also want to be able to connect them without feeling a sense of distance. Most of all after you have found all of these areas of fullfillment; there is the feel of the campus visit; how did I feel as I walked around and visited as a stranger at this place; did I feel at home; did I feel welcome or out of place? This last area would be the deciding factor.

What's unique about your campus?

The facualty and staff, the students from around the world who attend Union University.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is looking for a christian world view, along w/a good curriculum.

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

When a student is considering a college or university, one of the most important things to remember is that college is furthering one's eduation; thus, I would encourage them to spend a lot of time thinking through their options and attempt to visualize where they see themselves for the next one to four years. The interests they have in a certain career could be a deciding factor, or out of state tuition could be a struggle they need to consider. Overall, I believe that both students and parents should take adequate time to process all the information regarding each school in consideration. Now, in regards to making the most of one's college experience, that is completely dependent upon the student. Do not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something new and fun. Get involved in ministries or activities. They sould find out what interests them the most, plug in, and commit to stay involved throughout their entire college experience.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is that it integrates faith and learning. My faith in Jesus Christ is the reason I live and breathe; therefore, I enjoy learning from a Christian perspective.

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

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

I would tell students to find a place where they could see themselves for their next 4 years. This should be a place that will help them grow academically as well as personally. Once they decide on a school, they should be as involved as possible without putting a strain on their academic performance. The next 4 years of their life will be spend at the school they choose and with the people that they make friends with. Some of these friends will grow into life long friendships that may be cherished for many years to come.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who seeks a school that integrates faith with learning.
