Why attend MU: The reason I chose MU was because of how small and inviting the campus was. Everyone smiled and said hello to me. It felt like I was at home.

Favorite thing: My favorite thing about being an MU student is that you can get a head start in you career here.

Never expected: During the summer of 2013, I was hired as a 319 technician intern here on campus. I worked closely with Dr. Sweeten and Dr. Kreps. They showed me sides of biology that I would never get in a classroom. I learned how to electrofish. That was probably my favorite skill that I learned.

I found: At Manchester University, I found my future. My adviser was nominated as professor of the year in 2009. He has opened up so many opportunities to get out into the field to experience my job before I graduate.
