Mr. President Eliphalet Nott

In honor of President’s day, I thought I might highlight one of Union College’s most beloved past presidents, Eliphalet Nott. During his unprecedented and unrivaled 62 year tenure, Nott bought our current campus and ended our time squatting in downtown Schenectady, hired a frenchman to do the designing with some European flair, and reformed our fabulous curriculum. And with a name like that, it’s no wonder they named our fantastic 16-sided Nott memorial after the man! Nott may have kicked it almost 150 years ago, he still has something to say: check Eliphalet Nott out on Twitter!
