Spartan Days designed especially
for college-bound high school students

High school students and their families and guests are invited to see for themselves why the leading college guides rank Manchester University as a “Best College” and a “Best Value.”

The independent liberal arts school is hosting four Spartan Days for prospective students this fall on its northern Indiana campus in North Manchester:

          Friday, Oct. 19
          Friday, Oct. 26
          Saturday, Nov. 3

High school students of all ages and their families are invited. They will tour the campus, meet current students, discover academic and Division III NCAA athletics opportunities, learn about scholarships and financial aid, talk with admissions counselors and receive a complementary lunch.

Or, students who have selected an academic major may want to attend a visit day tailored to their studies. See below for a schedule.

Manchester University offers more than 55 areas of baccalaureate study, master’s degrees in education and athletic training, plus a professional Doctor of Pharmacy degree on its Fort Wayne campus. The beautiful 100-acre residential campus is home to 1,281 students from 21 states and 23 countries.
