Union College introduces an early admission track for nursing program

Start your nursing education now

Do you feel called to be a nurse? Don’t worry about two year waiting lists. Check out a nursing program where graduates pass the national licensure test on the first attempt at a much higher rate than the national average. Now Union College has introduced two new ways to give nursing students peace of mind while they follow their calling: a nursing scholarship and an Early Admission Track.

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.

EveryPerson and Others—Union’s spring play debuts March 19

EveryPerson and Others, Union College’s own adaptation of two classics—The Second Shepherd’s Play and Everyman will debut tomorrow night, March 19, at 7 p.m. The production, which runs approximately 80 to 90 minutes, including the intermission, will run six times over a course of ten days.

Union issues apology letter for past racial discrimination

On February 9, the Union College Board of Trustees voted to approve a letter nearly a year in the making—a letter of apology to alumni who suffered racial discrimination while attending Union College.

The idea started with the stories of Oscar Harriott, a man whose family exprienced racism at Union College throughout the 1940s-60s. He spoke for a Martin Luther King Day event in the spring of 2014 and to the cast of Union’s “Fifty Years Later,” a dramatic production about the Civil Rights Movement.

Congratulations to the ASB executive officers for 2015-2016

The results are in for next year's Associated Student Body executive officers. Congratulations to:

On January 19, seven International Relief and Rescue students, alongside IRR instructor Aaron Kent, traveled to Nicaragua for their annual overseas semester—the final step in completing the degree.

This year’s group includes seniors Emilian Grigor, Amy Matsuda, Jonatan Rojas, Shannice Baker, Tyler Underwood, Tylar Bissell, and Connar Kragel.

While in Nicaragua, students will obtain experience in the fields of medicine, community interactions, and international development.

Union student's essay wins McDonald's Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Essay Contest

When Union College sophomore J-Fiah Reeves heard about the opportunity to enter the McDonald’s Martin Luther Kind, Jr. Essay Contest, he jumped at the chance to explore the life and ideas of the civil rights leader.

The contest asked Nebraska students to write what King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech meant to them. “I thought it would be a great opportunity to learn more about Dr. King and listen to the whole speech,” said Reeves.

At Union Market, students can eat cereal to help feed hungry Lincolnites

For the next month, Union College students and the Lincoln community can eat at Union Market, the college’s dining hall, and help hungry Lincolnites at the same time.

Now through February 20, “Kellogg has partnered with Union College to encourage students to make the choice that makes a difference by participating in the ‘Eat.Share.Prosper.’ program,” said Jennifer Jaacks, a spokesperson for Kelloggs, in a news release.

Taking every opportunity to lead

In her light gray, long-sleeved Social Work Club t-shirt and dark skinny jeans, Shawna Ansari, 24, sat cross-legged on a rustic oak coffee table in the second floor lounge of Rees Hall. A senior at Union College, Ansari reflected on life events that resulted in leadership roles, both at her summer job at North Star Camp and at Union College.

Smiling as the autumn sunshine streamed through the lounge window and illuminated the amber glint in her eyes, she told me it all began at age nine with her first trip to North Star Camp in Brainerd, Minn.
