I started Manchester University in the fall of 2016 as a freshman. I met my roommate on a website that the school provides for us to meet other incoming students. When I went for orientation, the food was good but definitely has degraded over the time that I have been there. The student life there is great. Everybody is very friendly and accepting of one another. I have a new family away from home at Manchester with all of my friends. One thing I really like about the dorms are that there are not curfews and the quiet hours are not very strict on most floors. I live in Garver, which is the most convenient building with air conditioning and being placed right by everything. Many of the buildings do seem old and run down though so I do recommend going on a visit before you commit to the school.
Review Manchester University
I have loved my time at Manchester University so far. The staff is amazing and genuinely care about their students and their successes, both in and out of the classroom. Although we are a small school, our athletic teams are still really great to watch, giving many students a break from studying. One of my favorite experiences so far at Manchester has to be Mayday Weekend, which is a huge campus-wide celebration on the last weekend of the semester before finals. During Mayday, staff and students are able to participate in a large variety of events, such as a trike race or mud volleyball. If I could do it all over again, I would definitely choose to attend Manchester University again. The faculty, the students, and the overall atmosphere of campus is absolutely amazing, and I wouldn't change a thing.
At Manchester, we do not offer any athletic scholarships, resulting in smaller athletic teams. With that being said, our teams do a great job of representing the school in a positive manner. They are always putting on a good show for the fans, and really boost school spirit throughout the year. Because our athletic teams are small, our athletic department does not get much funding to support the teams as much as they need to be able to. While our facilities are fairly new, they are simply not up to par with many other facilities that you would find at another nearby college or university.
