What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Make sure you study frequently, in the trimester system everything moves much faster than normal and you always need to be on task.
William from Winter Park, FL
Look in to scholarships as early as possible! Also schedule an interview if you can make it to campus!
Lily from New York, NY
visit!!

If you are looking for a place where your professors know your name and they really care that you learn, Union is the place for you.

Get familiar with the campus and its lifestyles early on. Learn different policies--it will sure come in hand later. Become familiar with residence policies if you plan to live on campus, and especially knowledgeable with academic policies. (For example, Union does not accept ALL Advanced Placement courses/exams for credit; familiarize yourself with which they do and do not to make it easier for you to transfer credits.) Make sure the school is really what's right for you, and be sure that you know it's a place you can really benefit from. Don't forget: full-time Union students only take 3 classes per term, but each class does the same amount of work in 10 weeks (one trimester/term) as other schools do in one 15-week semester.
Victoria from Athens, NY
Take advantage of the overnight program, where you can come stay with a Union student for a night. While you can learn a lot about the academic side at Union through tours and information sessions, spending a day and night with a current student will show you what it's like to actually be a student at Union on a day to day basis - in and out of class.
Jordan from Ballston Spa, NY
Get used to working hard, especially if you want to be an engineer here. College is harder than high school, period. The courses here are fast paced due to the trimester system and while that keeps things interesting it also means that falling behind can happen just by missing one class. Use your office hours. The professors that teach here came here because they love teaching; they love to have students come in and ask them questions, they donâ??t even have to be about the course.
Scott from Wells, ME
Don't go in closed-minded. Always give every college you visit a chance. That's what I did and it turns out that I loved the school way more than I thought I actually would.
Britt from Albany, NY
