AIKCU Voices: Ryan Yother, Union College

For 2020 we’ve been asking students and alumni of Kentucky’s independent colleges and universities to share something about their college experiences in a series we’ve been calling AIKCU Voices. We pressed pause on these for a bit as we dealt with the immediate ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic, but it’s important to keep celebrating the students, alumni, and faculty who make our institutions such special places. If you’d like to share your story, email us at

Union College student Ryan Yother

Union College does everything possible to make sure that it offers an affordable price for its students. 100% of Union students receive financial aid to assist them in higher education, in my case an endowment scholarship.

It is because of this liberal arts institution that I received a personal education and had the opportunity to intern on Capitol Hill. I know I will be leaving Union prepared for life after college.
