Why attend MU: Going to a place where I could have a one-on-one time with my professors and where I could walk around campus and be able to acknowledge a good number of faces was one of the major factors that led to my decision to attend MU.

Favorite thing: The fact that there’s more than one place where I fit in. I found my place in science but I’m also part of several organizations that I feel as comfortable in.

Never expected: I never expected to be part of several organizations let alone be part of the executive board in one of them in my first year.

I found: At Manchester I found a family. Being part of the intercultural community, made my first year experience much easier.
