  • Union has apartment-style dorms--so no cramming two beds, two closets, and two strangers in a bathroom-size room! The apartments truly are the best I have seen on college visits. This…

    The food here is almost always decent, but I don't feel that the dining hall is always open at the most convenient times, which sometimes makes it hard to make time to eat dinner before it closes.

    Eh.... Not too great. It is about 800 dollars per semester for 100 swipes which means you can eat about once everyday. It is buffet style but I find that the food is sometimes very unhealthy with too much oil. There is a salad bar but sometimes the food (especially the lettuce) is not very fresh... Not the best cafeteria I've seen.

    Union is a bit lacking in the food category. There are two places to eat in campus. Brewer Dining hall offers an all-you-can-eat style which typically is hit or miss on whether the selection is good. The other option is the Lex which is a diner style which burgers, salads etc. Union only has meal swipes, no dining dollars or anything like that. But the required meal plan is only 100 meals.

    To be honest, the food is not great, but it is improving. The staff is really great, and they work hard with the ingredients they are given, but it is clear that Union doesn't spend as much on dining as their professors. It is bearable though, and it teaches students to learn to cook for themselves. It also is a strong encouragement to use the workout facilities on campus.

    The dining halls are pretty good, for the most part. We have two dining halls: Brewer, which is more of a cafeteria and the Lexington Inn, which is more fast food.

    The cafeteria has a wide selection of foods throughout the day. We also have a sub and grill cafe which is open most of the day and later in the evening. If you don't feel like walking to the cafeteria, you can always cook for friends in your kitchen apartment!

    Greek life is the best thing that I have ever chosen to be a part of. I have gained so many friends from joining, not just from my sorority, but the others as well. I have also had many volunteering opportunities which allows me to give back to the community.

    Yes there is greek life but I dont know much about it except that they have dances and parties. If you like partying and dancing would recommend Greek life I guess because or else you are not allowed to dance on campus-kind of- because Union is a southern baptist university. But the Greek buildings are kind of off campus so your allowed to dance there lol Well the according to the greek ppl they focus more on studying and helping each other in their studies than partying so i guess that's how it is..

    Three sororities and three fraternities. About 25% of the campus is involved in greek life. A great way to meet others and get involved on and off campus.

    I am not involved in Greek life, but some of my friends are. They stay very active and have lots of fun doing stuff all the time.

    Union is one of the few private Christian colleges that have acknowledged Greek organizations.
