"Experience Day" at the Brattleboro Center, Saturday, November 12

BRATTLEBORO – Union Institute & University's Brattleboro Center will host "Experience Day" on Saturday, November 12, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at VABEC on Old Guilford Road. The event will feature an overview of the B.A. weekend program by enrollment counselor, Lindsay Guido. Guests will also have the opportunity to sit-in on various faculty seminars to observe and experience what it’s like to be a student at Union.

The B.A. weekend program caters to working adults, offering a flexible schedule in which students engage in studies at the Brattleboro Center one weekend a month. The progressive learning format allows students to build relationships with faculty and other students, while also allowing them to complete their studies on a schedule that works for them.

Union’s unique program is structured in a way that allows students to customize studies around their own interests and passions. Coursework can be designed around one or more of the following concentrations: arts, writing, and literature; education (teacher-licensure track available); environmental studies and sustainability; global studies, history, and culture; psychology and human development.

Experience Day will give prospective students the opportunity to see how these studies take place, a chance to mingle with current students and faculty, and time to speak with enrollment staff. Guests are welcome to begin their day with Union as early as 8 a.m. for a free hot breakfast before the overview begins at 9 a.m. Students are encouraged to participate until noon. Those who are interested may stay for lunch and the rest of the day’s activities.

Union's B.A. weekend program is currently accepted students for our winter term beginning in January. $1000 scholarships are available to all new applicants. For more information about applying or the Experience Day, please contact the Brattleboro Center at, or at 802-257-9411. RSVP’s are encouraged but not required.
