At Union they are many extracurricular activities. Some these include the robotics team, sports team, such as basketball, and organizations, such as Student Council. Going to a small school like Union allows you to be in all of these activities because advisers in coaches understand this and let you split time between different activities.

I love Union because it is small, but everybody knows everybody and that's what makes it great. We are like one great big family at the U!
Going to a small school such as Union helps all the students to have a good relationship with the teachers. The teachers know all the students names. Also if you ever need help you can stop into one of their classrooms or email them online.
