    Overall Experience: Every school has good and bad things, but I feel like it's 95% good at Union. This school feels like more of a home than my actual house. I would want my kids to go to a school like this.

    Food: Overall my school has great food options on and off campus. I prefer to walk off campus so that I can get up and move around for a little bit, but the on campus food that I eat is almost always great. There's only been one instance where I wasn't sure if my meat was actually meat.

    Administration & Policies: I've never been in serious trouble with my school's administration, so I don't have an opinion about the severity of their punishments. I've heard others frequently complain about minor incidents such as parking tickets, dress code, or detention due to not wearing an ID.

    Sports & Fitness: I've heard multiple people say that my school's athletic facilities rival those of a small college. I've gone to Union for my entire life, so I'm used to the high standards. Almost every time that I visit a neighboring school, their athletic facilities are underwhelming or even disappointing. The Jenks and Broken Arrow facilities are probably the only exeptions.

    Teachers: The science department at my school is where I've found all of my favorite teachers. They're knowledgeable and friendly, and I value their advice.
