My grandparents are alumni of Mount Union and are still very active on campus. I grew up with the University, wearing Mount Union hoodies in elementary school and getting Raider gear every year for Christmas. I actually chose to attend Mount Union partially because my grandparents live nearby and the closeness of the campus community. I knew I would get more out of an education if I could have the type of one-on-one relationships with professors that Mount Union offers.
