Why attend MU: I attended MU for many reasons, but, the 3 most important reasons were: The great environment that I'd be able to live and be apart of, the great financial aid I recieved and the school had to offer, and last but not least, the great faculty and staff that I'd get to learn from and work under. And, that is why I choose Manchester.

Favorite thing: My favorite thing about MU is definitely being able to view all my professors as more than teachers. Other than being great professors, they are, if not friends, acquaintances that really care about you and will work hard for and with you to ensure your success and graduate you as an individual with GREAT ability and conviction. At MU you become a SPARTAN and a part of this world we live in.

Never expected: I never expected to go to New York on tour. At the end of my spring semester last year A Cappella Choir decided to tour New York and some of the surrounding areas, and while on tour I was able to use won tickets to watch "Wicked" on Broadway! It was very fun.

I found: My future. Here, at MU I learned about what I wanted to do and be and how I can acheive it, and more importantly I learned what I can do with it to better both myself and the world. At MU I found my reason and place in this world.
