"Union is a place to grow spiritually as well as academically. One of my favorite things about Union is the personal interest that the faculty and staff take in each student. While I was there, I felt as though I was more than just a student occupying a seat. Never once did I feel as though one of my professors was unapproachable- whether my concerns were academic in nature or otherwise. It is apparent that the faculty at Union strives to be not only a corp of instructors but to be friends and mentors as well."
