  • Union College checking in from chilling Schenectady, New York. I think the most important question to ask yourself when applying to schools is this: do I see myself living here for 4 years and loving it? If no, forget it. If yes, matriculate.

    Union is 75% Greek, yet I did not join because I am an athlete. Our sports off campus houses are essentially fraternities. For a student body of 2,300, the social scene is abundant, with parties four days a week and during the spring, everyday.

    Union definitely has a study hard party hard mentality and it pays off. Union boasts a very reputable alumni base with connections in nearly every industry. That’s how I got my first job.

    I would say Union is fairly preppy, with most students coming from New England prep schools, that being said as Union admissions become more selective, it’s becoming less about can an applicant afford tuition, but rather one’s intellect and capability.

    Union is transitioning as a small liberal arts college, but none the less harbored some of the best years of my short 22 year life.
