Grad Year: 2014

Why attend MU: I applied to about 10 schools because I had no idea where I wanted to go! But after visiting Manchester, I knew it was the place for me. It was a calming feeling of home and community.

Favorite thing: Manchester provides a million opportunities for their students and all of the amazing faculty and staff are there to support you through every step. I have been able to explore my passions in so many different areas thanks to the help of the amazing people at MU!

Never expected: I never expected that within one year I would travel to Spain on a January term trip and then spend a semester studying abroad in Ecuador. There is no better way to learn a language than to be immersed. And I'm also finding that there's no better way to learn about yourself!

I found: exploration. I came to college with a million interests in mind and no clear path of what I wanted to do. But everyone at MU has helped me realize that that's okay! I can explore my passions in all of these areas and maybe eventually stumble upon a path.
