Am learning a lot
Professors at Union have an impressive knowledge of the content area and related areas of knowledge. They also strive to connect interdisciplinary ways of thinking and provide an all-around excellent educational experience. There is a very good combination of lecture and discussion at Union College.
Am enjoying being here
I made friends right away when I came to Union and I can already tell that we will be friends for life. The people here make everything worthwhile. Everybody is so inviting and friendly that it's hard to not have a good time.
Bang for the buck
While an education at Union College is quite pricey, I definitely agree that it is worth every last cent.
Tips for prospective students
I highly recommend making campus visits, talking to advisors from your discipline, and KEEP searching for financial aid.
Great for these types of students
Union has excellent health-related programs and a top-of-the-line education program.

Union College has a blossoming family oriented campus atmosphere where a responsive faculty and school spirit driven student body works together to create a better future. Union strives to help students find their place in the world and teach them the skills they need to make a positive affect on the world around them.
Tips for prospective students
1. Ask lots of questions
2. Seek out study partners
3. Stay focused, just because it's a fun place, the classes are still challenging
Academic Rigor
Life is fun but challenging. Union College strives to challenge their students and help them build confidence. When students leave Union they are equipped and ready to serve the community around them.
Dorm Life
At Union, the deans are very helpful in finding you a roommate. The dorms are usually fairly quiet allowing for great study. The students are very friendly and dorm life is really just living with your best friends.
Food and Dining
Union College's Union Market is one of the best cafeterias out there. There are tons of healthy and nutritious choices. Union's Cafeteria is a great place not only to eat but also to study. It's a very professional dining hall.
What to do for fun
Union College is overflowing with many student activities. Each student is required to participate with at least to student clubs each year. From Project Impact one of the longest ongoing community volunteering projects around to many local hot spots for students to visit and spend time together with the community.
Bang for the buck
The 26k tuition is a staggering door price but the services, the atmosphere, faculty, students, and the experience are worth so much more!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The Clock Tower is an awesome gathering place on campus. Whether you just want a place to sit while you eat a banana or hang with someone special, under the Clock Tower is a great place to go on campus.
Great for these types of students
Fun loving but studious students will find their place here. Also, being a christian based college, you will find a place for your faith to grow here in the warm and loving atmosphere on this college.
Campus Safety
The campus is monitored 24/7. There have not been any serious incidents in years. The supportive atmosphere of the college discourages criminals. There is also a police station on campus.

union is located in lincoln, nebraska, which contrary to popular belief is not in the middle of a cornfield. union is small enough to know most people and say hi to them as you walk around campus. service is emphasized and led by student groups.
Tips for prospective students
you will get out what you put into it. you will do well academically and socially if you make an honest effort.
Academic Rigor
there are more and less challenging teachers.
Dorm Life
curfews and other rules are enforced, but when there is an emergency everyone is willing to work with you.
Food and Dining
there are a ton of good places to eat within driving or even walking distance.
What to do for fun
bike trails, holmes lake, visit the capital building (beautiful architecture), sledding, local plays.
Bang for the buck
the financial aid team is super nice. merit scholarships are available especially for freshmen but also for transfer students. i think the price is worth it.
Clubs and Activities
the associated student body plans events almost every weekend. other clubs include amnesty international/tiny hands club, international club, and ministry club. if you want to get involved in something there is a way to do it!
Campus Safety
lincoln is relatively safe to walk around which is nice. security carts also drive around campus at night.

Did learn a lot
I transferred from a community college so I've been in college before Union. It was so amazing!! The teachers care about you as a person and not just a grade. They encourage discussion and produce different viewpoints so that you can make your own decision.
Did enjoy being here
I made friends immediately and some of them will be my friends for life! Just like anywhere there are clichés and friends with whom you hang out. But everyone is so friendly that’s hard not to make friends with everyone! Even if someone’s not in your “crowd” it’s still very easy to hang out.
Bang for the buck
For a private Christian setting and education, the price isn't too bad! But the reason for only 3 stars is because of their cavalier attitude about the cost of Union and how easy it is to pay for school. Even with student loans, federal aid, and a small scholarship you get from Union, you'll need start looking for scholarships as soon as possible to help make up the difference.
Tips for prospective students
Beware of the Concepts of Wellness class! This is a class that everyone is required to take but unless you're already an athlete you won't get an A simply because of the lab.
Great for these types of students
Those who will work for what they want, even when it seems unattainable.
