Across the Unionverse: Spencer Way

Photo of Spencer Way receiving his diploma from President Wagner.

Spencer Way just graduated in May, but before doing so, he sat down with us and talked about ... well ... pretty much everything. Before we edited it down, the conversation we recorded was three hours long, and that doesn't include the time we chatted before starting to record. Suffice it to say, Spencer is very interesting and very interested in nearly everything. 

Emily's five strategies for earning scholarships

When I came to Union College as a freshman in the fall of 2013, I brought $15,750 worth of outside scholarship money with me. Combined with the scholarships I got from Union, I received a total of $43,250—enough to pay for my entire freshman year and then some. The story of this amazing haul started with my decision to come to Union, and my uncertainty about whether I could afford it.

Across the Unionverse: Shawna Ansari

Photo of Shawna Ansari.

Shawna Ansari loves camp. She's spent most of her summers at North Star Camp in Minnesota, first as a camper, then a volunteer, and moving her way up through the ranks of workers to be assistant director. She's seen the power summer camp has had in her own life, and wants to give children a similar transformative experience. In this episode, she shares her love for the unique experience of camp, and of course there are plenty of (hopefully) interesting side topics discussed.

Nursing students learn in the Nicaraguan jungle

“Lindsay, get up, there is a woman in labor that needs our help.” The voice from the darkness jarred Union College nursing major Lindsay Harrison from her midnight slumber.  As her mind cleared of its sleepy grogginess, suddenly the hot Nicaraguan jungle, the villagers and her Frontier Nursing class came flooding back into her consciousness.

She quickly jumped from her resting place and discovered the disembodied voice belonged to Adam Neep, a Union international rescue and relief student who had come to take her to the laboring mother in the nearby village.

Streamlined steps simplify financial aid process

Securing financial aid and working out a payment plan can seem like a daunting process, even for seasoned seniors. But the folks in the Student Financial Services office are constantly looking for ways to make the process easier.

This will be especially important now that a new federal law mandates that all students must have their student accounts paid in full at the end of each academic year. This means you will need to have your previous 2013-2014 balance paid before completing fall registration as well as make your first monthly payment for the 2014-2015 year by August 1.
