Union College is an ongoing story, told in many chapters and composed by many authors. The College's home page endeavors to share portions of that story with our on- and off-campus communities.

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.

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?

IRR major spends the summer as a wildland fire fighter

Some summer jobs involve flipping burgers, watching youngsters swim or filing in an office, but not for Connor Kraegel.

Finding a calling in service

“If I would have known better, I would have done better.”

Angela Washington listened to the repentant cry of a mom in anguish. Sitting in a cold courtroom, watching the mom huddled close with her loved ones awaiting the upcoming verdict, she saw a judge decide the fate of this family.

Renewable scholarships make Union a top value in Adventist education

Unexpected Affordability

For some students, studying at an Adventist college seems like an impossible dream—especially when state subsidies make a public university education appear much more affordable. But Union College’s new scholarship program could change all that. Starting this fall (2015-16), freshman will be eligible to receive new four-year 100 percent renewable scholarships from $6,500 up to free tuition.

Welcome, new students!

The new semester is starting, and we're excited for the new faces arriving on our campus. Here's a quick reference list of important information to make sure you're prepared:

Campus clubs build leadership skills

Like many student leaders at Union College, Sameera Sigdel didn't go looking to be in charge. But thanks to Union's leadership minor and campus work experience, when the time came she was ready.

Born and raised in Nepal, Sigdel first arrived in America in 2009 to attend Campion Academy in Colorado. Told that it was a safe place for international students to attend school, Sigdel started classes that September—a choice that set her on the path to Union College.

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.

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.

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.
