Beyond the Classroom

From day one, Union encourages you to explore, question, think creatively and take risks. But our approach to a liberal arts education is also characterized by our focus on contributions-- on creating valuable opportunities for you to test your theories, share your work and put your thinking into action in practical, real-world situations.

At Union, we understand that some of the most important learning takes place outside the classroom, through experiences like study abroad, hands-on research with professors, Minerva House activities or internships. We challenge our students to stretch their boundaries, apply their knowledge and make important contributions – both during their time at Union as well as after they graduate.

After all, that's what Union students have been doing for more than 200 years.
