Why attend MU: Once I visited Manchester, I knew it was the place for me. I felt at home. Not to mention, they gave me excellent scholarships and financial aid.

Favorite thing: My favorite thing about being a student at Manchester is all the relationships I have developed; not just with students, but my professors and the faculty, too. It is nice being a part of a small, tight community. I am from Oregon, so I don't get to go home on the weekends. But having so many close friends here on campus, I feel comfortable.

Never expected: I never expected to study abroad. However, Manchester provided an excellent opportunity for me, I took advantage of it. I will be traveling to Jamaica in January.

I found: my second home.
