Open houses

Join us for one of our Discover Union: Virtual Open Houses, an hour-long opportunity to learn more about Union College from a variety of voices.

Offered Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. eastern time, each program will feature an introduction from Admissions, an overview of academic life from a faculty member and class dean, and a panel discussion with current students. At 8:00 p.m., you have the option to stay in the session for a virtual tour of Union's beautiful campus with one of our student guides.
