The Opportunity To Experience
College is a great time to reach beyond what your child already knows - and whom they already know - and a great feature of Mount Union is that they can experience anything they want. Life has to have balance and at Mount Union, our challenging curriculum is coupled with exciting social opportunities. There is always something happening on campus, with a wide range of student activities such as concerts, comedians, lectures, music and dance performances and fraternity and sorority functions.
Our social activities are also a great way to for students to meet all kinds of people. It is an important part of college to open their minds and explore as many different cultures and experiences as possible. Activities such as International Week, Black History Month, the Multicultural Retreat and Women's History Month at Mount Union enhance our diverse campus opportunities.
Competitively, Mount Union has been a leader in the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC). The Purple Raider football team has won numerous national titles and most of our teams have won OAC championships. With 21 intercollegiate teams on campus, your student can continue his or her athletics in the competitive arena, or stay involved in other ways, such as participating in intramurals or using our workout facilities.
