HST 228 - Union’s History and Treasures

Course Units: 1
(Spring; Brennan) The history of Union College is broad and impressive; however, tight schedules while rushing to class in Butterfield or Bailey, a meeting in Hale House or Feigenbaum, a conference or guest lecture in the Nott, or an event at Achilles makes it easy to overlook that history. Since 1795, there have been wars, economic expansions and depressions, internal and external political conflicts, and social revolutions; through it all. Union has not just survived but endured, while remaining committed to the progressive ideals of its founding. This course will investigate the history of the modem, living institution that is Union today, that is. the physical realities of the college (grounds, buildings, and landscape) as well as the academic, athletic, and social environments that provide life and meaning for all who have entered its gates. Understanding the history of Union gives students an opportunity to shape the future - as Union and its alumni have shaped the past.
