Interview with Union teacher, Ben Holdsworth

Ben Holdsworth has spent most of his adult life teaching in some way. From being a student missionary in Thailand, to working at academies in Florida, to teaching adult Sabbath schools, to finally coming to work at Union college.  He has always been passionate about Biblical studies, and his most memorable moments as a teacher come “when students are called to a life of deeper faithfulness with God."

Leeper resigns, Reiner to serve as interim financial VP

Union College has opened a search for its next Vice President for Financial Administration. Jeff Leeper, who has served in the role for the past two and a half years, announced his plans to step down from his post to follow God’s calling.

Cinn-onymous with Union

When Union sent me an official acceptance letter, I called my friend who attended Union at the time and drilled her on all I needed to know as an incoming freshman.

“You have to have Instagram,” she said. “And everyone goes to Buell’s house on Friday nights, so you have to go.”

“Who’s Buell?” I asked.

I quickly learned that Buell is a man who “kinda looks like Santa without the beard,” and that his wife makes “the best cinnamon rolls in the world.” 

Half a Century at Union

For half a century Archie Hilliard played a pivotal role in Union’s growth—personally installing and maintaining much of the campus infrastructure that supports the school’s educational mission. Even though he spent most of those years working with brick and metal, he believes Union’s people are what make this a special place.
