Why attend MU: I came to Manchester because I liked the small school and the atmosphere of the campus. But I feel like I really came because I was convinced I was going to be a pharmacist, but then after realizing some of the other amazing opportunities I had available to do with my life, I decided that being a pharmacist was not what I actually wanted to do with my life; and was able to explore other areas of study thanks to the liberal arts education.

Favorite thing: My favorite thing about being a student here at Manchester, is the wide range of opportunities I have here even though we are such a small school. You get amazing opportunities to do things that students at large institutions would have to compete to get. Also, the level of personal interaction you get with the faculty and staff is amazing!

Never expected: During my time here, I've already received the opportunity to work with many different kinds of people and youth in many different situations.

I found: myself. I never really knew who I was or what I was capable of until I came to Manchester.
