NORTH JACKSON -- Union University is just a little over 40 days away from playing their first games as NCAA Division II members.

The school was in a three-year process to gain membership into the NCAA, and was just given final approval on Thursday. Union was previously a part of the NAIA conference.

Union's first official sporting event as an active member of NCAA Division II will be Sept. 5 when volleyball, men's soccer and women's soccer all open their seasons on the road.

Union first home event as an active member will be Sept. 12 when again, men's soccer, women's soccer, and volleyball will all be playing at home.
