Tours and Information Sessions

The Admissions Office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and on select Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. We are located in Grant Hall (yellow building with white pillars), which is the third building on the right inside the main entrance on Union Street (Payne Gate).

Student volunteers give tours of the campus that typically last an hour. Admissions deans lead group information sessions for prospective students and their families. The group session lasts just under an hour and will offer an introduction to Union. The presentation will begin with an overview of the College and campus life, followed by a half hour on topics of interest to you - essays, effective applications and interviews.
