Leading behind the scenes

Meetings with the garbage collectors, meetings with the college president, presentations to the faculty and students, more meetings with deans and resident assistants, speeches at colloquiums—Joe Hofmann is busy. A nursing major also working toward minors in leadership and psychology and an associate degree in Pre-Allied Health, Hofmann is also the resident assistant for village students at Union, s Student Center supervisor and a columnist for Union College’s newspaper, the Clocktower.

Union students spread the bread

Standing in line with two or three carts full of peanut butter, jelly, bread, water, apples and bananas, Veena Tharayil attracted a lot of attention. A 19 year-old sophomore studying general studies, Tharayil has always been inspired by her mother’s compassionate and giving spirit. This helped form Veena’s passion for the homeless that fueled her to gather a bunch of friends and give sack lunches to over 150 people on Lincoln’s streets one Sabbath afternoon in October.

Warriors basketball teams thrive on fan support

Sophomore Gerry Mtike could feel the roar of the crowd as he took the floor. Only two minutes remained in the November 4 contest, but a late rally gave the Warrior basketball team hope of a come-from-behind victory.

Even though the team fell short that night, the support of the fans and the atmosphere of game reminded Mtike what first attracted him to the team. As a freshman he loved to attend games, and now after 11 months or practice, he made the team.

Union students help plan fundraiser for local community center

On Thursday night, October 16, College View Church's Heartland Hall will be transformed. Each year, the Good Neighbor Community Center holds the Samples of the World fundraiser—giving the city of Lincoln a chance to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of a wide variety of countries and support the work of the center. But behind the food and fun, Union College students provided the vital support needed to make the event a reality.

Career Fair contact leads to summer internship

For many, career fairs conjure up images from high school of walking through rows of decorated booths as and overwhelming number of recruiters handed out free pens and brochures. But when Steven Foster attended the Union College Career Fair last fall, he discovered that finding an internship or a job is all about networking. And a career fair is a great place to network.

Union College to host annual high school volleyball tournament

Women’s high school volleyball teams from around the country will soon gather at Union College on the weekend of October 16-18 for the annual Union College Invitational Volleyball Tournament 2014.

Olympic gold medalist to speak for Union’s Leadership Symposium

As a Cornhusker linebacker, Nebraska native Curtis Tomasevicz faced barreling lineman nearly twice his size. But that’s nothing compared to hurtling down the side of a cliff at 90 mph with nothing to protect you but a tin can. “Bobsledding is kind of scary,” he said. “When you look over that cliff, you can’t see more than 50 meters in front of you.”
