Why attend MU: I loved the small campus and how welcoming everyone was!

Favorite thing: The social interaction! Although I chose MU for the campus size I was worried that it might cause me to miss out on the college experience. Was I wrong! I have met some amazing people who I know will be lifelong friends. Not to mention the faculty here is made up of more than just professors. It is made up of caring people who truly want to see you succeed.

Never expected: Well this January I will be doing a practicum in Haiti which I know will be an adventure! I never thought I could be excited about going somewhere with limited indoor plumbing!

I found: At Manchester University, I found me! Since coming here I have become more independent and outgoing. I have discovered a side of me that I never knew existed. Through this I have found inner strength that I know I will be able to carry with me into my professional life.
