Name: MaKayla
Hometown: North Manchester
Major: Elementary Education
Grad Year: 2015

Why attend MC: Transferring after one semester in South Bend, I realized I wanted to be closer to home, and Manchester seemed to be the best fit. It literally is home, the town I grew up in my whole life.

Favorite thing: I love that you're not just a face in the crowd. Professors actually take time out of their day to help if needed and they actually know who you are. Being a transfer student, I feel pretty welcomed to the education department.

Never expected: In January, I am going on a plane for the first time and heading to Phoenix, Arizona to help out in schools in the area.

I found: Comfort. Now that I'm at Manchester, I am closer to family and I love being an education major. Things are just a lot better since I transferred and I love being home!
