Tell us about yourself!

My name is Noelle Patterson, and I use she/her/hers pronouns. I am a Digital Media Arts major. I will graduate in 2025. I come from Fort Wayne, IN.

What are you involved in on campus?

I am proud to be a social media assistant for the Office of Marketing!

Why did you choose Manchester University?

I chose Manchester because I wanted a school that would feel like a family to me. I also wanted a place where I could be myself and grow. Manchester has given me that and so much more. I am proud to be a Spartan!

What is your favorite thing about Manchester?

My favorite thing about Manchester is that I know most students and teachers. I enjoy the community and being able to know everyone's names. 

Who is your favorite professor you have had?

Jacob Mertens, Tim McKenna-Buchanan, and Michelle Calka are all amazing professors! I refuse to choose one of them as my favorite. Each of them has taught me incredible things and proven to be helpful, understanding, reliable, responsible, and (my favorite part) interesting to be around. 

What is your favorite class you have taken at Manchester?

My favorite class so far is Digital Storytelling 1. It is a fun class where we can interact with cameras, make simple interactive games, and practice using our voices to tell stories in a podcast-like setting.
