Hometown: Windfall, IN
Major: Communication Studies
Grad Year: 2014

Why attend MU: I liked that the campus was small and that North Manchester was a small town with a lot of character.

Favorite thing: I am in the Fast Forward program, so my favorite thing has to be that I am getting a degree worth a lot (because of Manchester's great reputation), but I am also saving tons of money. My second favorite thing has to be that Starbucks coffee is now served on campus.

Never expected: I never expected to meet one of the co-founders of Vera Bradley. It was an experience I will not forget.

I found: lifelong friendships.
