Make Union Yours

Make Union Yours

CONGRATULATIONS! Since 1795, we've been challenging convention, blurring boundaries and shaking up traditional thinking. We're excited to welcome our new admitted students to take a closer look at life at Union and learn why you should make Union yours. 

We hope you and your family will join us in April for our special events created just for you to learn more about life in and out of the classroom. 

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.
