Much like an artistic collage is comprised of various materials and colors, Union College provides students with diverse opportunities and experiences. On registration day, August 20, the Union Collage will introduce students to campus clubs, local businesses and ways to engage with their campus and community.
In conjunction with Homecoming Weekend, Union College will celebrate Christ's death and resurrection with several special events.
On Saturday, April 7, at 10:40 a.m. Dick Stenbakken ’62 will perform a first-person drama, The Centurion, in the College View Church sanctuary. Stenbakken, who spent most of his career as a military chaplain, will perform the monologue in full costume from the view point of the centurion who professed faith in Christ at the cross.
The ONE Project is committed to the idea that a Jesus-driven, Jesus-bathed, Jesus-backed, Jesus-led, Jesus-filled, Jesus-powered, all-about-Jesus Adventist Church is the uncompromising directive from our past, the joy of our present, and the hope for our future. We claim the primal Adventist impulse: a longing to be with Jesus. The ONE Project seeks—through gatherings, conversations, web-based content, and Christ-focused publications—to stimulate preaching, worship, and adoration of Jesus within the Adventist Church.
This week, July 25-29, Union College will join the eight other member schools of the Nebraska Independent College Foundation in hosting College Week, a special visit event for prospective college students across eastern Nebraska.
During College Week, Union will host two visitation times each day, at 9:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and will include a campus tour and a financial aid presentation. Each member school will follow the same schedule so perspective students can visit more than one college per day.
During Sunday’s ceremony, Union College conferred 203 degrees to 194 students, including 21 students graduating with a Master of Physician Assistant Studies. Union’s class of 2011 represents seven countries, 35 states, and one US territory. Of the 32 different majors earned, the most popular are nursing with 40 graduates and international rescue and relief with 30.
