Why did you choose Union: Because of the connections with faculty and friendships I was able to make during my overnight visit to Union. Union was my last college visit, and I was flown in for an extended overnight program during a spring Open House. My host, Dalila Haden ’19, became one of my best friends, and everyone I met during that time I also became close with. Additionally, the atmosphere at Union gave me that large school feel but on a small campus.
