Admissions Hosts First Bulldog Days

A total of 56 students and their parents got to know Union University at the first Bulldog Days, October 16 – 17. High school juniors and seniors came from 11 states for an overnight stay.

The students had access to information panels, campus tours and a student life and academic fair that are not typically available at a college preview day. They were able to choose between sessions that fit their needs best.

A longer visit allowed more time for students to meet professors and students from multiple departments and student organizations who were able to show off what they had to offer.

The overnight stay let students connect and bond with other prospective and current students and get a taste of what campus life is like at Union University.
