Founded in 1795 as the first institution of higher learning by the New York State Board of Regents, Union College is located in Schenectady. The school is regarded as one of the “Little Ivies” and is considered to have a “more selective” admissions program. Union College follows a core liberal arts curriculum and was the first liberal arts college to offer a degree program in engineering. The most popular majors are economics, mechanical engineering, and political science and government.
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!

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.
