D******h from Palm Beach

The best choice for a small college in this day and age. The marriage of the humanities with science and engineering is unequalled at any school of its size. A beautiful campus in a city in the midst of dramatic revitalization, Union is twenty minutes from the Albany airport. Alums have been at the top of some of America?s most famous companies including DuPont, Kodak, IBM, Merck, Texas Instruments, Black &Decker, Goldman Sachs, to name a few.. Athletics are top notch (national champs in hockey 2014). Social life is impressive. All in all, an unbeatable combination.
