Hometown: Winchester, IN
Major: Elementary Education
Grad Year: 2013
Why attend MU: I chose to attend Manchester because it was everything I was looking for. Sounds cliche, right? But it is the truth. I loved the small campus and the quality of the education. I can be active in many clubs, programs and sports here. Perhaps most importantly, I am part of the Fast Forward program that allows me to earn a degree in just three years! This was the only school I looked at that offered this option. I have felt welcome ever since I first stepped foot on campus.
Favorite thing: My favorite part of being a student at Manchester University is being able to walk around campus and find PLENTY of people to talk to. I love being social and making new friends.
Never expected: Hmm...good question. I suppose I always thought of college courses as something intimidating with a professor that will lecture and won't remember my name. I have been fortunate to get to know many of the staff and I thought that this would not happen. I also got an amazing opportunity to travel to Spain for my art class. I plan on traveling again soon!
I found: opportunity. So many doors have been opened and I have had so many new and exciting experiences already! I look forward to all that lay ahead of me.
