What Students Are Saying

4.01 Average Rating
Union University is the best school on the face of the earth. Teachers really care about the success of the student and encourage the students to do their very best. Almost all of the students there are friendly and genuinely care about their peers.
Justin from Belmont, MS
Union University is a fantastic school that, for the most part, lives up to its portrayal of itself. Union claims to be excellence driven, Christ-centered, people-focused, and future-directed. It truly does meet those claims.
