Welcome to the Union College International Club (UCIC), the most diverse club on the Union College campus! It doesn’t matter if you’re from the US, Peru, Brazil, China, Japan, Korea, American Samoa, Vietnam, Indonesia, Paraguay, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica—you get the point. This club is for everyone! Thanks to UCIC activities you’ll be able to see the world without leaving Lincoln! During the year UCIC sponsors events such as “Taste of Union” (where you can sample food from around the world), and the Mr./Ms. World Pageant (where you’ll get to see the talents and abilities of our international students firsthand).
UCIC members also enjoy other exciting activities such as the camp out and an International Banquet. But the focus in UCIC isn’t the activities—it’s on cultivating friendships. In UCIC you’ll make friends on campus, from all over the world, and form friendships that will last a lifetime.
Our slogan is quite straightforward: “Got Culture?” You’ll learn about other cultures, make friends from other cultures, and become a very “cultured” person. We want to learn about and cherish cultures in addition to our own. We want to cultivate an understanding and appreciation for other cultures.
The world we see is rich in diversity and value. We want to celebrate this diversity and share it with others to build understanding and appreciation. We want to encourage Union students to broaden their horizons and see the world we see. We see a whole world of people to love, to serve, to befriend, to teach. We see a world that needs us; we see a world that needs Jesus. The Union College International Club exists to nurture friendships built on shared experiences, values, and dreams, which will stay with us after we leave Union, and which we can share with others to make our world a better place, and to introduce people to Jesus.
