Love at First Sight
On a cross-country trip with her brother, Taleah stopped at Union College and fell in love with the school. After seeing approximately 80 percent of the campus family turn out to volunteer, she knew Union was the place for her and a pit stop became her new college home. (See Taleah's ad.)
My Med School Life Raft
When the life raft started drifting out to sea during an international rescue and relief training exercise in Honduras, Eddie and his classmates found adaptability and teamwork kept them safe. Eddie says the lessons learned in Union's IRR program prepared him for the challenges he now faces in medical school. (See Eddie's ad.)
One size does not fit all. During a directed study course on African American writers of the Harlem Renaissance, Michael found learning is most meaningful when it's personal. Now he's the teacher and brings the one-on-one attention he found at Union to his own classroom. (See Michael's Ad)
