My Manchester Story

Charlotte Wilson

by Brooklyn Schumm | Oct 31, 2022

Tell us about yourself!

My name is Charlotte Wilson, my pronouns are she/her, and I am a first-year from Kalamazoo, Mich.

What are you involved in on campus?

I am in esports, track and field and Manchester University Gaming Society.

Why did you choose Manchester University?

Well, I first learned about Manchester through track and field, but it was always my top option after my first visit here. I visited about five other schools, and nothing compared to Manchester. 

What is your favorite thing about Manchester?

I like the close-knit community; it started lonely, but many people opened their arms to me, invited me to things, and talked to me. It made it easy to make friends. 

What do you see yourself doing after Manchester?

I will likely go back to my hometown and find a job for my degree.

Who is your favorite professor you have had?

Barb Burdge or Robin Mitchell. They are both fun, down-to-earth professors who excite me to go to class.

What is your favorite class you have taken at Manchester?

My favorite class has been my first-year writing seminar for LGBTQ+ inclusions.

What’s a Manchester bucket list item you’d like to check off?

I want to learn more about the area and places around north Manchester because I’ve barely seen much of Indiana.

What advice would you give to an incoming Manchester student?

I am a first-year student, but I have already learned one thing: don’t stop making friends when you find one group. Meet different people in various groups.
