“We then toured Union College….
Both our mouths almost dropped open when we walked into Union College. It practically looked like a resort. We then met the receptionist who introduced us to a student who showed us around. She was friendly, knowledgeable but most of all “real”. We were almost sold on the spot.
I had previously heard quite a lot about the hazing culture within colleges so after the tour I snuck back in and found another student studying in the library. After introducing myself as a prospective parent and educator I asked ‘what is it really like?’ As an educator I can sniff out insincerity a mile away, but I was left feeling confident what we were told was in fact accurate. The actual experience did not disappoint.
In summary: The orientation was thorough. The communication friendly and efficient. The friends on my daughter’s floor have been welcoming. The facilities excellent. But most importantly the culture is one of respect that encourages student empowerment and fairness. This is NOT easy to build or maintain so from us both, a huge well done and thank you.”
