Cookie Call

How care packages kept alumni connected to Union College while serving in Vietnam

For Allan Stone, there was nothing like a cookie and the latest issue of the Clocktower, especially when stuck in a war zone thousands of miles from Union College’s peaceful campus.

It was 1969 and Stone had been drafted into the U.S. Army and shipped to Vietnam just months after graduating from Union with a degree in business administration. So far from home, he and his fellow soldiers often found it difficult to stay connected with loved ones.

Union College welcomes a new president

Dr. Vinita Sauder, who most recently served as vice president for Strategic Initiatives at Southern Adventist University, has accepted the invitation of the Union College Board of Trustees to serve as Union's next president. She will transition to her new role at Union over the summer.

Recognizing veterans

Most veterans appreciate being recognized, not only by the military, but also by the civilians they serve. For many of us who served in Vietnam, that recognition was a long time coming. I returned from the war through San Francisco late at night because we had been warned that the war protesters might go after those of us having to fly in uniform.

Farewell to Dr. John Wagner

The sunny Sabbath afternoon found six or seven students at Dr. Malcolm and Sharon Russell’s home. The two Union College employees, he the vice president for Academic Administration, and she the director of guest services, often invited students to their home. As we settled in, talking and laughing, the smell of lasagna drifted from the kitchen.

Preparing for Military Service

Union's Medical Corps trains potential draftees

When people complain about completing a task “under fire,” they rarely mean it to be interpreted literally. For former Battalion Surgeon Bill Swan, there is no other way to interpret it.

Student veterans at Union College

Two young men from two different home states: two branches of the military and two different stories to tell. Their experiences, their words and their outcomes, however, are similar. One college. One faith. One God. Union College is privileged to claim two young men who not only served their country honorably, but who now also serve God through the sharing of their different and yet remarkably similar stories with others.

Serving with pride

Graduates from every era serve God and country at home and abroad

Drafted and volunteers, land and air and sea, male and female, medical staff and combatant, wartime and peace, Union College alumni have participated in military service since the school’s founding.

Harry Hass: Giving something back

Elder Harry Haas ’48 felt so blessed by Union College’s Medical Cadet Corp (MCC) that he chose to pass his training on to others by instructing Army doctors on how to administer first aid.

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

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.

Dr. Vinita Sauder named new Union College president

Dr. Vinita Sauder, currently vice president for strategic initiatives at Southern Adventist University, has accepted the invitation of the Union College Board of Trustees to serve as Union's next president.

The appointment will fill the position soon to be vacated by John Wagner when he retires in June. Wagner joined Union College for a third time in 2011 to help complete the $14.5 million Our Promising Future campaign and build the new Krueger Center for Science and Mathematics.

Krueger Center officially opened

Even when angry skies drove the ceremony indoors, more than 200 employees, students, alumni and friends of Union College found reason to celebrate as the new Krueger Center for Science and Mathematics was officially opened with a ribbon cutting on May 8.

Union students named heroes by American Red Cross

For students in Union College’s new Red Cross Club, being a hero doesn’t always mean committing acts of selfless bravery such as rescuing someone from a burning building or raging river.

Sometimes it’s the little things that count.

At their annual Tribute to Heroes banquet on May 1, the Cornhusker Chapter of the American Red Cross honored the Union College students with the Tribute to Heroes Disaster Relief Award for “unconditional service and support to the Cornhusker Disaster Action Team.”

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.

Union student places in NICF art contest

What started as a hobby, a passion and a ministry has made junior Chaz Spellman $200 richer.

The annual show awarded prizes for two dimensional and three dimensional art, which included photography, paintings and illustrations, and held an awards reception on Thursday, April 10, at the O’Keefe Elevator Gallery.
