Union College - Nebraska Reviews
Union College is a special place to be. It is a Seventh-day Adventist college with only about 900 students, so the atmosphere is small and friendly. The professors are extremely helpful and easy to reach. If I need help I can easily email or text them, or visit them during their office hours. And sine the college is so small the professors have time for you. I have enjoyed my experience. Every Saturday night, the student association puts on activities for the whole school. This makes it easy to find something to do. Since this is a christian school, rules can be pretty strict. There is no drinking allowed, and one can get in trouble if caught with a substance in his/her dorm room or on-campus housing. A problem I have is that many of the students come from about 3 Adventist academies, so if you did not attend that academy or go to camps connected to those academies, it can seem cliquish and hard to fit in.
Attending Union College as a freshman was hard when from out of state. Many of the faculty were very supportive and available for students to ask for help when needed. When "involved" with the wrong group of friends, you are then labeled as a bad student and then the faculty wouldn't help at all. They were more focused on being religious, and I felt judged the majority of the time I was there. I felt more depressed because my peers around me weren't very welcoming. Some of my friends were accused of wrong doing because of rumors and they were asked to leave because of the reputation they had, when the stories weren't true. The staff didn't want to give them the benefit of the doubt, but instead kicked them out f school. I wasn't a fan of Union College.
Their business division is top-notch and the faculty and staff have been my family since the beginning. It's hard not to like your degree when your teachers are cheering you on and constantly doing anything they can to make sure you succeed. The cafe is decent and there are a lot more options compared to other Adventist colleges, as well as, lower prices and discounts on food overall. Although it's a small college, there is something really great about the family atmosphere it delivers. Union College is a great place if you like being involved. There are SO many opportunities to grow and learn outside of just being a student: clubs, sports teams, intramurals, ASB, campus ministries, and more. If you want to be more than just a number at a large university, I would recommend Union College to anyone who wants to have a personalized experience. If you utilize everything that UC has to offer you will be very successful once you leave and your resume will show that.
