About AUC

Founded in 1882, Atlantic Union College in South Lancaster, Massachusetts was the oldest campus in the Seventh-day Adventist worldwide educational system. In 1882, the school was organized as a preparatory school under the leadership of Adventist ‘pioneer’ Stephen Nelson Haskell to serve the needs of Adventist constituents in the northeastern part of the United States and Bermuda.  It served the Northern New England Conference, New York Conference, Southern New England Conference, Bermuda Conference, Greater New York Conference, and Northeastern Conference.
