The academics of this school is what attracted me to attend. All of the professors are more than willing to assist students who show an urge to learn the material. Professors can be your greatest asset, so try your best to remain on their good side. One time, in winter, I talked with a professor for 30 minutes about just life in general. That's hard to find at a college nowadays.

Union College was a great educational experience. . One of my most memorable experience was the time I had to go to the computer lab at 3 A.M. to get time on the comupter. Students majoring in Computer Science should plan on spending a great deal of time in the computer lab.
