    When I toured Union University, I absolutely fell in love! I have never felt such at home on a college campus as I did at Union University. I highly recommend looking at Union University to see if it fits you. The people their are very kind and welcoming. The first time I stepped foot on Union's campus, I made a few friends!

    I have never experienced anything like Union University. I felt so welcome the second I got there! The students and staff are great and are devoted to helping you get where you need to be. I’m an art major and the staff helps me to understand where I fit into God’s plan for me. The Christ centered education I am receiving is truely like no other. You can tell the staff genuinely cares about your success and are always available to meet with you to discuss your future and needs.
    Dorms are set up in quads. Four girls share living area and kitchen and there are two bathrooms for the four girls. Dorms are furnished with stove, refrigerator, microwave, and washer/dryer. You pay for 120, 150, or 175 meals per semester. Each time you enter the cafeteria your card is swiped. Once inside the cafeteria you can choose whatever you want, as much as you want. Being a private Baptist University students are required to attend chapel so many days per semester. Students can choose day and time they attend. Faculty is outstanding. They will answer your texts quickly and are student oriented.
