Most Helpful Review for Union College - New York
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Victoria from Athens, NY
  • 8 out of 8 people found this review helpful

Overall students generally feel like they're learning quite a bit. The professors are great and help you to really understand things. Still, sometimes things are being taught that you MAY have already learned in high school (especially if you took Advanced Placement courses but didn't receive credit), so SOMETIMES classes can feel like review.

    Union College has the most beautiful campus in the country. The size is perfect, the students are friendly, and the professors are approachable. It brings together students of all academic interests, including engineering, and forms an incredible community that I will be proud to say I was a part of for the rest of my life.

    Union is the perfect blend of academic and social life. Each day you are challenged intellectually in class, and are able to express yourself through many clubs and activities throughout the day and night. The connection among students is powerful and the atmosphere on campus can't be beat.

    I just finished my freshman year and I loved it. Getting involved in sports/clubs/greek life/etc. helps you meet and become part of close nit friend groups. The academics aren't easy but the trimester system is very unique, in a positive way.

    All in all, I fell in love with Union College as soon as I stepped foot on campus. It is absolutely beautiful and the people there are just the same - everyone is so friendly and easy to talk to! Also, the financial aid package I received from them was awesome!

    Great school with great resources and awesome professors. The town isn't the best, but you don't really need a car to get around. You can be sporty, artsy, brainy or maybe just average and you will find people just right for you.

    When I visited the campus, it had an extremely upbeat social atmosphere. I felt really comfortable there during the campus tour and I would suggest researching more about this college for anyone who has fears about leaving their home, because it seemed to have a very strong support system for their students.

    This college has great academics along with great professors. Along with the academic opportunity given here, the school offers a large amount of financial aid for their students in need. Lastly, the upperclassmen attending the college are usually very helpful in all aspects of college life.
