For the Mountain Advocate

College is about traditions; it’s about completing the circle of education and moving toward the next phase of one’s life; it’s about discovering the values we all hold. More than 200 incoming college students committed themselves to this endeavor and pledged to support Union’s core values during the annual C.I.R.C.L.E.S. ceremony.

“This ceremony serves as a partnership between Union and the community,” said Union President Marcia Hawkins. “Here, we pledge our support to the success of our freshmen students and they plan to work diligently to reach their goals.”
