When the Union Junior College was founded back in 1933, only 243 students were enrolled in classes held at the Abraham Clark High School in Roselle. Today, nearly 90 years later, Union College has become one of the top community colleges in the nation, encompasses 4 campuses throughout the county and more than 7,500 students.
We are so proud of the thousands of alumni that have passed through the halls of Union College, which include many accomplished and prestigious individuals. Some of our alumni went straight into the workforce while others continued to earn a four-year degree at colleges and universities across the nation. We are proud so of our alumni and are honored by the many of whom have chosen to pay it forward by supporting the Union College Foundation by reinvesting into our students by providing need scholarships, supporting Foundation events and donating to the numerous student success initiatives that are having a real and lasting impact on our students and community.
