Reasons to attend and to not attend Union College

To Attend

  • “The relationships with professors and the small classroom environment.”
  • “The small community and the community in general. There are so many phenomenal people here that care about Union so much, from current students to the people working here to alumni who come back. Alumni glow when they hear that you’re a student there.”
  • “The student spirit and school spirt students have. People are proud to wear the school sweatshirt around and have a lot of camaraderie.”
  • “It’s really easy to establish a really good cohort of friends through intramurals, classes, and Greek life if you choose to do it.”
  • “The administration is very approachable. It’s very easy to go talk to them and tell them about your concerns about your classes or changes you want to see on campus. The same goes for the president, he’s very approachable and always up for a chat with the students.”
  • “It’s so beautiful in the fall and spring that it almost makes up for how bad the winter is.”
  • “We have really good resources. I think the career center is really helpful, and we have great resources for students who have dyslexia or need extra time on their tests.”

To Not Attend

  • “It’s kind of a bubble. People tend to come from the same background. If you’re from a very different socioeconomic background, it can be difficult to adjust.” [About 72% of students are White. Socioeconomically, 37% of students at Union come from the top 5%.]
  • “The winter is so cold and depressing.”
  • “If you’re interested in having a classic college social life and going to parties but you’re not interested in Greek life, don’t go to Union.”
  • “If you want a robust college town.”
  • “It’s an expensive school if you don’t have a good scholarship or financial aid.” [Total fees for the 2019-2020 year are about $71,385.]
