My Manchester Story

Why did you choose to attend Manchester?

I was initially interested in Manchester because my older brother attended the school before me and enjoyed his time here and thought it was a good school to get his education. After doing my research, I found many things Manchester offers to be really important and convincing. For example, the interprofessional education experiences that they have with other health care students from other programs was something I really liked. This was important to me because it helped mimic the situations that we would likely face in a real-world situation, and that is exactly the time of experience and education that I was hoping to get from a pharmacy school.


What's your favorite thing about Manchester?

My favorite thing about Manchester is the fact that the class you have is relatively small compared to other pharmacy schools and you get a lot of one-on-one time with professors and faculty. Also, my classmates are much more welcoming and helpful than I expected. It really feels like a team effort to ensure everyone is prepared and aware of what is going on and what needs to be done.


What advice would you give to incoming students?

I encourage students to take advantage of office hours for all their professors. Going to the professor's office and asking questions is very important to know what they are looking for, what material is most important to master, and how to study for their exams. The professors know the material very well and know what is most important to focus on when studying for exams.


What do you do for fun?

Whenever I have any spare time, I make sure that I can play basketball for at least an hour or two. I find that basketball allows me to forget everything I have going on with school and focus on having a good time and playing the game I love.
