Union Parents and Family

Dear Union Parent,

This is one of many forums for communication between you and the College. Our hope and goal is to help you feel connected to Union College at all stages of your student’s tenure.

My role as Chair of the Parent Association is a natural extension of my many wonderful relationships with Union College. My daughter, Melissa graduated in 2011 and my husband, Mark is a member of the class of 1976. He has been active on the Board of Trustees for many years, and now serves as Board Chair. We all share a commitment to this college.

As the year progresses, I hope you will read and enjoy the material sent to you. We want you to feel connected to Union and to your son or daughter’s college life. The student run newspaper, Concordiensis, gives you a window into special events, ideas and issues that are being discussed on campus. The campus calendar will help you plan for vacations, athletic events and will give you a snapshot of campus life in detail. Finally, the Alumni Office plans many events throughout the year which you are also welcome and encouraged to attend. Please check their events calendar often!

I join the chorus of people at Union who very much hope this is a wonderful year for you and your family.

Warm regards,
Polly Vail Walsh P’11 
Chair, Parent Association
