"The admissions team at Union made our son, J, and our family feel like we really mattered. They were responsive, thorough and made the complete process simple. They made us feel like family. J knew he belonged before he even stepped foot on campus in August."

Alumni Success Stories

Brett Botta

"Union's professors are just incredible. They aren't just there to teach you for 50 minutes of class. They truly want to build relationships and get to know you. In doing that, they help prepare you to go out into the workforce and succeed, but even more importantly, to live out a life on mission for the Lord."

"My husband and I love everything about Union! From admissions to financial aid to campus life to discipleship to the educators, we have been beyond impressed with all things Union. God has continued to support Braden in his decision to attend Union by bringing teachers and other students to encourage him in his walk with Jesus.
