Congratulations 2011-12 class officers

Following a rousing rendition of "Slinga de Ink" at convocation on Sept. 20, 2011, classes met to choose new student leaders for this school year. A far cry from the earnest politicking of ASB elections in the spring, class elections are informal affairs. Nominations are made on the spot, and votes are cast by raised hands.

At the fall 2011 Academic Convocation, Union College proudly awarded the recipients of the first annual Union College Board of Trustees Writing Awards. Each winner received $1,000 cash.
