Saint Joseph’s students invited to consider Manchester

Campus life at MUManchester University invites Saint Joseph’s College students to explore whether this northern Indiana school is a good fit to continue their education. 

On Feb. 3, the Saint Joseph’s College Board of Trustees announced all activities at its Rensselaer campus will be suspended at the end of the 2017 spring semester. This will be effective through the 2017-18 academic year.

Manchester will work to provide a smooth transition and award scholarships and financial aid to all qualified students. It is free to apply. Learn more.

As a private liberal arts institution, the MU undergraduate experience is centered on a picturesque residential campus in North Manchester, 85 miles east of Rensselaer. Its 1,260 undergraduate students come from many walks of life to pursue more than 70 areas of study

The student body reflects a variety of religious traditions, with Roman Catholic the largest single faith group on campus. Saint Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church is located in the North Manchester community.

Grounded in a tradition of faith, service and social justice, Manchester founded the world’s first undergraduate peace studies program, one of the nation’s first undergraduate environmental studies programs and the nation’s first master’s degree in pharmacogenomics. Clubs and organizations, NCAA Division III and intramural athletics, study abroad, service learning and internships complement MU’s quality academic programs.

In addition to undergraduate programs, MU offers a Master of Athletic Training degree in North Manchester and Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Pharmacogenomics degrees at its Fort Wayne campus. Learn more about the private, northern Indiana school at
