The Mount Union campus is one of the most influential selling points to prospective students, and one of the most memorable aspects of the experience that alumni carry with them well beyond the time they graduate. The campus has undergone some drastic changes in the past 175 years, to say the least. As new construction and renovations constantly take place to keep Mount Union both architecturally beautiful and ahead of the times, the work done by the Physical Plant through the support of donors and friends never goes unnoticed.
Another important part of Mount Union's story is the Alliance community's influence on the campus, as well as Mount Union's impact on the Alliance and surrounding communities for the past 175 years. The "town/gown" relationship between the city of Alliance and Mount Union is one that has seldom wavered in the support of one another. Through local scholarships opportunities and community service initiatives, Mount Union has strived to help Alliance and its residents continue to be successful since Hartshorn first came to campus. In turn, the Alliance community is a significant factor in how Mount Union has thrived for 175 years, and will continue to beyond 2021.
