5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Union has some of the best dorms because they are mostly new, other than the Heritage dorms where the majority of the freshman live. I lived in the Heritage dorms this year and, although they weren't of the highest quality because they are older buildings, they were well kept for what they were and I enjoyed the social atmosphere. If it were socially acceptable, I would live in this area all four years despite the better amenities and newer dorms elsewhere on campus.

Off-Campus Dining: It's like most rural, college towns. There isn't a huge variety, but there is enough that there is something for everyone and you can change it up every once in awhile.

Administration: The administration at Union is wonderful. They put rules in place that don't suffocate the students but keep them safe and hold to them well. Administration persons are fun to be around, kind, and always looking for ways to help individuals and improve the school as a whole.

Scholarships: Although I need more, I was able to work with the school to get just enough in order to feel okay with attending Union but it is still not close to comfortable. I work regularly to apply for scholarships and have a part time job during the summers as well as a work-study during the year. Because I strive to put classes first, it isn't possible for me to work any more than I already do during the school year although I am always looking for small side jobs with friends in the area as I'm needed.

Campus Food: At times, Cobo had good food that was also healthy but this was rare. The Lex had the same choices all the time and got old quickly. However, we are getting a new dining service this year so Cobo and the Lex no longer matter. Hooray!

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: When you actually get off campus, it's great. However, Union does absolutely EVERYTHING they can to keep your money and keep you on campus. A ridiculous battle that I am currently trying to fight because the school doesn't understand I just can't afford it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: How close it is to campus is really nice, along with getting your own room. I can't imagine having to share a room like you do at most colleges. However, the price for on campus housing is so high and ridiculous that I will not even be living on campus next year because of how expensive it is. If they lowered the prices, there would be much less complaints.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Are athletics would be better if the students cared more. We don't have great courts or facilities especially when it comes to the training rooms. The school spirit is honestly just sad though. People would much rather go watch an intramural sports game than a home varsity athletics game. It's pathetic.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not like there's much of one because of Union's rules.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I think there is a great amount of different options all around campus. And a ton are within a mile of campus!

2 College Sophomore

Administration: The open dorm hours affect everyone's social life. Union thinks that if you have a person of the opposite sex in your dorm people are going to automatically do things they shouldn't be. Did they ever think that maybe we just have friends or people we need to help with school work?

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: For how much the school cost to attend, they should be offering many more scholarships than they do. All they want is your money, and all of it, but do not give it out very easily.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It could be way better but I know there are a lot of schools where the food is probably a lot worse. So, I'm not complaining too much.

3 College Student

Campus Food: I don't like not being able to cook for myself. I'm pretty picky. It's not awful food, but it's just not my preference.

Off-Campus Dining: It's okay; Jackson isn't necessarily a "University Town" so there's choices, but not amazing ones.

Administration: There are lots of things that they are way too strict on, but that's just because it is a conservative Christian college. That's to be expected. I just personally believe some of the rules are based of the rule-maker's beliefs, not necessarily "what the Bible says."

Scholarships: There is not very good communication between the financial aid department here and students. It really depends on the person you are working with; some are more than willing to go above and beyond to help you get the money you need, while some...well some people there seem to care less so long as they still get their paycheck.

Campus Food: As mentioned previously, we students have to pay a lot for the food, but you can tell the quality is cheap. Tons of kids have upset stomachs every time they eat campus food. I can't complain too much though, because our president said that we will be having a new company working with us next semester, so hopefully that means better food!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus at Union is great because, for the most part, the students are really spontaneous. Sometimes walking out of your dorm, you'll see an impromptu mini-concert on the lawn, or perhaps a quick game of soccer. Every year we have a Quidditch tournament between the dorms! We have movie nights, and lots of cute little get-togethers in the commons area for any and all students. The ResLife is really dedicated to the well-being of the students, so some nights get-togethers are replaced with workout/yoga nights, life lessons (like how to do taxes or change a tire), or even like what we are having this week - a seminar on what it's like to be a young adult living with depression, and where to find help. Campus life is great!

Local Area: Jackson is located right in between Nashville and Memphis, so there are a couple of big cities around if you want to drive a couple of hours.

Administration: They are strict where they need to be strict, and they are lenient in the areas that they don't need to be to strict on.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of chain restaurants around campus, but there are enough where it's not always the same food.

Party Scene: I don't have a desire to party. It's not really my thing to find every party to go to.
