Advice for incoming students: During the four years you will spend at Union, you will continue to grow and learn about yourself whether you are conscious of it or not. You have to find what balances you, what you need in order to succeed while still staying sane. Union will foster your curiosity, your desire to better yourself and find what it is that makes all your efforts worthwhile - what makes you happy. You will gain a family away from home in a place you will grow to call home for the next four years, and I hope you find something to love or to be proud of here, just as I have. If you ever find your resolve waver, ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do it. What comes next may surprise you in ways you have never imagined.

Life after Union: Albany Medical College, Class of 2021
