Who’s Who honors

60 more MU students

Sixty Manchester University students are honored for their scholastic achievement in the 2012-2013 edition of Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities & Colleges.

The MU students are included in the prestigious Who’s Who Among Students biographical volume that provides lasting tribute to the leaders of today’s college generation.

Manchester’s academic chairs nominated students for inclusion in Who’s Who based on their academic achievement, service to community, leadership in extracurricular activities and potential for continued success.

“College students are the reservoir from which our nation draws its leadership strength,” says Who’s Who, which has honored outstanding campus leaders for 77 years. “This feeling about American students is the guiding principle behind the Who’s Who Among Students program and our efforts to proudly continue to aid campuses in honoring students who demonstrate consistent excellence.”

Manchester University offers more than 55 areas of study to 1,345 students from 21 states and 23 countries. Learn more about academics at the independent northern Indiana university at
