Why attend MU: I decided to attend MU because I love the size of the school. It's small enough to really feel like you're part of a community and to be able to get to know people really well. I love having small class sizes too because it really helps you to get to know your professors.

Favorite thing: My favorite thing about being an MU student is that I get to live in such a fun and welcoming environment. I love living on campus with all my friends. I love the community that is built from living on campus.

Never expected: When I started attending MU I never expected to live in another country but right now I am currently studying abroad in Quito, Ecuador and I am loving it. I'm learning so much about the culture, the language, and the history. I am so blessed to be having this experience.

I found: At Manchester University I found adventure. I traveled to Ecuador to study abroad and learned so much about a different culture. I ziplined through the rainforest, swam under waterfalls and ate a lot of new delicious foods. I am forever changed by my experience in Ecuador.
