Union University (UU) is hosting Homeschool Day at the U on Friday, September 16, and high school students and their families are invited to attend. Union will share why it is one of the top choices of universities by homeschool students.
The university is a homeschool-friendly and continuously reaches out to our community. It has garnered the reputation of being a campus offering students “a top-ranked education in a safe, Christian environment“. “Next stop Union” has been the destination for many local and out-of-state homeschool students.
Just a few facts about Union University, which was founded in 1823:
- The Student body is less than 3,100 students.
- There are more than 100 programs of study.
- The ratio of student to faculty is 10:1.
- One hundred percent of the incoming freshman receive financial aid.
- Eight-five percent of the faculty has earned the highest degree that is possible in their field.
Homeschool Day at the U is a full campus, all-day experience for high school, homeschool students, and their families. Everything is provided and free including the meals (ex: breakfast, lunch, etc.) for all families attending with their high school aged student.
The event is specifically designed for the homeschool student, so the presentation will be different from the regular preview days offered on campus. The panel will include homeschool students, and the topics covered by the faculty and staff will be ones that will cover issues important to homeschoolers.
Some of the activities for the day include learning about the honors program, resident life, and attending a chapel service, which is required by all enrolled UU students. Enrollment counselors will also be available to answer questions about the various academic programs, admissions process, and financial aid opportunities.
