Union College will be hosting an overnight college preview event for high-achieving students from diverse backgrounds. This event is designed to allow students to learn more about our academic offerings; give them an authentic view of what life can be like at Union; and provide opportunities to engage with current students, faculty and college leaders.

Because we understand that traveling may pose a significant financial burden for many families, the College will provide transportation and campus meals for all students in attendance.

See below for application requirements and additional details.

Our 2023 GTKU event will be a 2-day program offered in conjunction with our Fall Open House. Students will arrive to campus during the day on Sunday, October 8, and stay overnight with a student host to attend our Fall Open House on Monday, October 9.
