Union College is a private liberal arts college in Schenectady, New York. Founded in 1795, it was the first institution of higher learning chartered by the New York State Board of Regents, and second in the state of New York. In the 19th century, it became the "Mother of Fraternities", as three of the earliest Greek letter societies were established there. After 175 years as a traditional all-male institution, Union College began enrolling women in 1970.
