At Union College, it’s different (in a good way, of course). Students notice it almost immediately. Sometimes it’s a teacher going the extra mile to help you with an assignment, or a volunteer event that connects you to new people and new communities. We can’t just go around talking about it , so we call it the spirit . We feel it here, and it’s life changing. Come experience it for yourself. Experience the spirit .

It’s more than a job. It’s your calling. At Union College, we are not here to train you for a job. You can get that anywhere. We want to help you find your God-given purpose and become everything He has planned for you.

Be a friend. Become a colleague. Union is a great place to make friends who will make college a blast and last for a lifetime. But more than that, you’ll make important connections to help you get the first job and the mentors you need to be successful.

Learn from the best. Union College professors are experts in their fields. Plus, they take the time to get to know you and will do whatever it takes to help you succeed. Don’t just take our word for it, though. Union College has been ranked in the top tier for our region by the U.S. News and World Report’s Best Colleges rankings for the past nine years.

Small school. Big Impact. We’re a small school, so that means you’ll have lots of chances to be a leader—and not just at Union. Our students lead a wide variety of initiatives that impact our campus, our city, and people around the globe.

Seven-day spirituality. Your friendship with God doesn’t just happen once week. That’s why more than 40 student-led worship and service opportunities all week long mean you’ll be able to continually connect with a faith community in a way that you love.

Quality + Affordability = Great Value. You get what you pay for, right? At Union, you get a whole lot more. You’ll find a partnership with us that makes your college education more affordable than you think. Our new four-year, 100 percent renewable scholarships make Union College the best value. If you’re ready for a challenging Christian education, together we can make it happen.

Not-so-little city on the prairie. At Union, you won’t see any cornfields (without driving a bit). Our park-like campus is surrounded by a growing and thriving college town with plenty to do and see. And because Lincoln is the capitol of Nebraska and the “happiest and healthiest city in America” (according to Business Insider), you’ll experience internships and career opportunities bolstered by strong tech growth on the “Silicone Prairie.”
