            Excellent Education in a Caring EnvironmentI got a great, well-rounded education in an environment where the students are the priority. While many of the professors are published, it's clear that teaching, sharing their knowledge and mentoring tomorrow's leaders is the main priority for these instructors. Union University is what college was meant to be - challenging, encouraging, and inspiring.
