Make Union Yours

CONGRATULATIONS! We're excited to welcome our new admitted students to the Union community. Since 1795, we've been challenging convention, blurring boundaries and shaking up traditional thinking. Our innovative spirit continues to flourish today.

We hope you and your family will join us for special events created especially for you. Take a closer look at life in and out of the classroom—and learn why you should make Union yours.

David R. Harris joined the community in the summer of 2018 as Union's 19th president. Hear more from him on his decision to come to Union.
