Caring Community

Miranda Malott loves animals. An official head count of her home will tell you that. She has two Yorkshire terriers, a chocolate Lab and three salamanders. Little wonder, then, that she’s wanted to be a veterinarian since she was “very young.” And that one of her companions these days is Juniper, a 4-month old service-dog-in-training that Miranda is socializing for the 4 Paws for Ability college program.

Activities

Cheerleading and a foster for a service-dog-in-training from 4 Paws for Ability

Favorite Hangout

Science Center. It’s very quiet and gives me quick access to my professors if I need to ask a quick question.

Recommended Faculty

Professor Aron Costello-Harris

Recommended Classes

My favorite class that I have taken so far was Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy, but I recommend that every student take a class with Professor Costello-Harris.

What People May Not Know About MU

How much everyone on campus cares for one another. The students, staff and faculty all care about each individual that steps onto campus and will go out of their way to make someone feel comfortable, welcomed and have a smile on their face.

Advice for Students Looking at MU

Embrace the small school atmosphere. If you are looking for a university that welcomes you with open arms, cares about you on a personal level and feels like a second home, then Manchester University is the school for you.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE
In January 2017, Miranda joined a group of Manchester students and health care professionals on the annual Nicaragua Medical Practicum. In a remote village in Nicaragua, Miranda got hands-on experience vaccinating and worming free-ranging cows and pigs.
