the garnet gene

my dad is a happy union double graduate, having received both his B.A. and M.A.T. from union. at least one of his twin daughters figured out that sUccess is spelled with a capital u!

You wouldn’t believe how many times I have started a conversation with a fellow Union student only to learn that they are a legacy here too, oftentimes through multiple connections, just like me. And that is something I just love about Union! Garnet blood runs through our veins. And we don’t go here because we rode our relative’s coat tails and couldn’t get in anywhere else; a lot of us got into some pretty outstanding schools but chose Union regardless because we know how much the school gave to our families. It may have taken some of us a little longer than we would have liked to figure it out (*cough* transferring…), but I definitely believe that coming to Union is coming home.
