Alumni Success

"Basically I had to be coerced back to school – and I’m so glad that I was. I left school incomplete due to family hardship, and never got the drive to get back in, that is until I accepted the challenge to try the BSOL program. Not only did I get the perfect degree for my career, but it also changed my life by being around the folks at Union. Help, encouragement, prayer, and correct focus helped me be the best I could be, and I excelled because of it. Even though it’s over, I’ll always remember my time at Union and the excellence of the program and people there."
