Unity College is perfect for those who love the outdoors, who seek adventure, and who love everything science and nature have to offer. Even if you aren't outdoorsy (like myself) but you would like to be- Unity helps you get there! If you are an avid hunter, a marine biologist, if you love sports, being involved, having fun, if you are a scientist a psychologist, a farmer, a fisher, if you love ALL animals- or just a select few, then I can guarantee Unity College is the college for you!
Alexandria from Sandy Hook, CT
Unity College is an amazing environmental school that is committed to involving students in their surroundings and their community. This school offers unique programs that no other school can offer, as well as unique opportunities that cannot be found anywhere else! Unity College encourages students to get outside, be active, and take a stand for their beliefs.
Stacey from Danielson, CT
If I had to rate Unity College and it was out of 10, I would give it a 10 because I love the small-based community that Unity has for students. You pretty much know everybody at Unity College and there is a lot of events that go on for everyone to do.
Zachary from Athens, ME
Unity is a teeny, tiny college for people who love nature & the environment. Whether you're an avid hunter or an animal lover, you'll fit right in. People here are very dedicated to what they care about!
Emily G.
Unity is an incredible place to be; they offer countless opportunies and experiences that are really tailored to me. If I had the chance to redo going to college here, I wouldn't change a thing. I recommend Unity to anyone and everyone that wants to do something with animals or nature.
