Very preppy, rich, mostly from NY, NJ, CT, and MA, lots of drinking, lots of frat involvement, very tight-knit, not very into sports, but pretty smart. I really liked it at the time.

Facilities
What letter grade would you give the facilities at your school.

Spanish, Class of 2010

Some of the dorms were a little outdated but they converted a hotel which was really nice. Classrooms were good, pretty much all had windows. Buildings were old and beautiful. Library was great, study spaces in general were really nice. Dining hall was nice, food was average, probably fewer selections than other schools due to the small size (~2,000)

Science and engineering labs, large lecture halls, dining rooms, dorms, college owned off campus houses

Fraternities/sororities were most popular. There were tons of clubs and activities. The unique thing about Union was that if you wanted to create a new group, you were able to do so. I really felt like you had a lot of freedom and opportunity to start new interest groups, regardless of what the interest was.
