My name is Derrick Phipps and I'm a student ambassador here at Union College where I am majoring in Education with a minor in Math and History. I've lived in Barbourville, KY almost all my life and when it came time to go to college, Union just seemed like the place for me. I love the closeness of Union College, it isn't like you're just a face in the crowd, you're actually a person. I enjoy walking on campus and knowing most of the people I see rather it be other students, faculty, or staff. I believe many students look at Union and think that since it is a smaller private college it doesn't have much to offer, but I believe there's a place for everyone at Union. So go ahead schedule your tour today and come check us out.
