Perfect example of why they asked how they felt about them.

They werent talking badly, they just asked an opinion, which was neither negative or not negative.

I think union college as a whole, benefits the community greatly. It allows the people of barbourville the opptunity to go to college and get educated while still living there. It allows people from other communities to come to barbourville and impact our community as well. Union college brings in alot of money to our town and Owns the land the city built the water park on and only charges the city $1 a year. Union cares about its community. Its just a shame that the people of barbourville don't realize and appericate the community service that the college provides to its town..

Union College Lowered it's standards of enrollment this year in order to up enrollment. Due to the lowering of standards, this years students are more rowdy and have caused more trouble than classes of the past. Damange has been done to the girls dorms by fellow male students and A professor, Dr. Covington, has made remarks about the lack of intellect this years students have and has had to lower his own teachering standards down to his students level.
Union college simply isn't what it once was and is slowly losing the respect from former alumni and students and educators throughout the state.

I guess this explains why a few students from Knox central got into union, If it wasn't for union lowering their standards, most wouldn't have even been accepted. The Simpson twins, I know, are two of them.
But, I'm sure if there were a class on drug use, sex and parties, they'd have the highest GPA.
Unfortunately for them, those classes don't exist.

I am sure that many of you are not aware of Union's education program currently being on probation as well.

If you are familiar with accreditation policies, then you know that the state comes in to re-evaluate the standards and accreditation of a school every few years. Last year was Union's time... They were put on evaluation until Spring 2010.. Meaning, if they do not greatly improve and hire new faculty and meet the standards required by the state, the school will lose it's education program. That will put Union at a great loss, seeing whereas the majority of their graduates are education majors.
yup

Standards are too low at Union. They don't even require GRE tests to get admitted to their graduate program. But this class that came in are well.. stupid or something.

Its sad, because the majority of the students in Dr. Covington's class have like a 40% average. His tests are hard and all, but most people don't care if they fail or pass.. like the kid who goes to sleep almost every morning.. in class.
