Becoming Part of the Mount Union Community

I came across Mount Union in an email, and after applying and visiting campus, I fell in love. The atmosphere is so great and everyone you meet is so kind and helpful! Looking at colleges can be super overwhelming for some, but I suggest reaching out and asking lots of questions. That can open a lot of doors for you and allow you to discover more things you’re interested in. I received an Esports Scholarship to play for the League of Legends team at Mount Union.

Mount Union is a second home to me because of all the people I've met, and everything I've been involved in. All my professors and advisors have been beyond helpful!

 

Learning Experiences

Every class I have taken so far has opened new opportunities and taught me new information. Being a French major, I am planning to study abroad the summer of 2022 in Lyon, France. My favorite experience so far has been meeting everyone and getting involved as much as I can. My experience with the Integrative Core will make me a better professional in my field because it helps identify different strengths in every student. Being able to work on and practice speaking and writing in a professional way has helped me broaden my career developmental skills.

I may not know what my career goal is exactly, but I know that being here at Mount Union has opened numerous doors for me and my career. The faculty have done the absolute most to help me figure out the best career path. Mount Union has been helping me prepare for this by involving hands-on experiences and meeting with professionals to learn about career opportunities.
