J-Term

Welcome to the J-Term 2013 HomePage! J-Term is a great opportunity fulfill course requirements at an accelerated pace, and this year we have added more sections of classes that students have requested. However, J-Term isn't just about the classroom, it's also a great opportunity to continue your involvement on campus. We have a full schedule of events planned and hopefully another snow-filled January to enjoy together! During J-term you'll find smaller class sizes, great community, and maybe even the chance to grab that dream parking spot. We want you to be here so much that we are offering free housing for any student who signs up for any traditional or online course through Union University. A one-hour class is all it takes to qualify for free housing. If you are interested in taking classes during J-Term talk to your advisor about registering for classes. To register for free housing follow the link below. We hope to see you here in January!
