The University of Mount Union is the outgrowth of a town meeting held by forward-looking citizens of the village of Mount Union on October 4, 1846. At that time, the people gathered to hear Orville Nelson Hartshorn outline the need for a new institution in the area, where men and women could be educated with equal opportunity, where science would parallel the humanities, where laboratory and experimental subjects would receive proper emphasis, and where there would be no distinction due to race, color, sex or position.
For many years Mount Union has claimed the distinction of being one of the first institutions to have a summer school. Started in 1870, this first summer school was actually a fourth term in the school year. Since that time, summer instruction has been offered each year at the institution.

Every college student hopes to enjoy a positive experience living within the campus community. Life in the residence halls is rich with opportunities for interpersonal relationships and personal growth. Living in a residence hall supplements classroom learning by providing an educational environment which allows students to learn the benefit of living independently and in cooperation with others from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
