Founded in 1795 as the first college chartered by the New York State Board of Regents, Union College is a 4-year liberal arts institution located in upstate New York. The first liberal arts college to offer a degree program in engineering, Union confers undergraduate degrees in 56 academic majors and minors. Additionally, Union is home to the Minerva House Program where students and faculty gather to interact and socialize in an informal setting outside of the classroom. Throughout the school year, Union schedules a number of all-campus events such as the Winter Dance Concert, Springfest, and Lobsterfest.
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.
