At Manchester, I started fresh. No preconceived notions. No trying to be somebody else. Here I’m accepted as I am. Whether I’m on the soccer field, in the classroom or just hanging with friends, I can be myself. I belong here. At Manchester, people you don’t even know are there for you, ready to help no matter what you need. It’s not just a college: it’s more like a small town where it’s easy to fit in—any way you want.
