Manchester, I Love You

by Delaney Ray | Feb 14, 2017

As a second semester sophomore and a Student Orientation Leader, I often look at the first years and think about when I was in their shoes. I think about how easy it was for me to make the decision to come to MU, and how glad I am that I came to that decision. Manchester, for me, is one of my favorite places; I look forward to coming back every summer. And still, after being here for what feels like forever already, MU never ceases to surprise me. For example, in the past two weeks alone on campus, I:

  • Got to hang out with the two service dogs in the library
  • Got a caricature in the JYSC
  • Learned how to analyze cognitive data for a research project
  • Went to a birthday party for one of my great MU friends
  • Learned some karate moves
  • Made a book/journal at a club meeting
  • Had a game night with some of my best friends
  • Tried guacamole for the first time
  • Went to a basketball game
  • Went to a hypnotist
  • And had a work pizza party at one of my on-campus jobs.

Just get involved, put yourself out there, and you never know what fun things will arise at Manchester! MU, thank you for all you have done for me so far, and all you will do for me in the next two and a half years!


A very grateful MU undergrad
