Leadership is a process

At Union, teamwork isn’t just for athletes. I would never have become who I am today without the support of my teammates in ASB and Campus Ministries.

During my freshman year, I received an email saying Campus Ministries was looking for a public relations person, someone to make posters. I had no idea what I was doing, but I applied. Little did I know this experience would begin my path to leadership.

PR class works for local nonprofits

Imagine walking into your first class of the fall semester and a new professor explains that you and your classmates will jump right into the work of creating a PR plan for a real nonprofit organization. That’s exactly what happened to David Deemer and Stefani Leeper when they walked into Pat Maxwell’s public relations principles class this year.

When all of Union College’s 2015 graduates passed the NCLEX-RN national nursing licensure exam on their first attempt, graduate Amber Alas knew it wasn’t a fluke.

“I knew the material. I remembered learning it in class,” she said. “I talked to friends from other schools, and they told me they hadn’t seen half the stuff on the test.”

You may know a lot about Union College, but did you know that the gifts of generous alumni and friends pay for 26 percent of the cost of each Union student's education?

There's more to college than classrooms

My Union College experience was shaped by the people who took the extra step to include a quiet guy like me in their community, like my freshman year resident assistant (RA). He bought griddles every Sunday and all the guys on our floor ate breakfast together. If anything could get me out of my room, it was the smell of pancakes.

Don’t cheat yourself out of an education by staying in your room. Classes and homework are just part of college. It’s when you get to know people and see the world through their diverse perspectives that you really start to learn.
