Manchester University is a smaller school, so the opportunity to get to know your professors and fellow students is much greater than a bigger university. The staff and faculty have been wonderful. Manchester was not my first choice, however we took a tour and by the end of the day I knew this is where I was meant to be. I can't imagine going anywhere else! I would certainly recommend Manchester University to anyone who doesn't want to get lost in the crowd and who really wants to be involved with the college campus life.

It is a small school, but has a fun atmosphere. There is always something going on! The classroom sizes are small and the professors are always friendly and available to help students.
The campus is beautiful, but some things can change. The resident halls could be improved greatly, definitely the East and Garver Halls. All of the diversity and friendly faces makes a great environment and a good way to make friends. When I was considering colleges, it was either this school or University of Indianapolis. Those two schools gave me the most financial aid. UIndy was closer to home, but I wanted a different environment. I do not regret the faces I met during the time I spent here. The food in the cafeteria could have a better taste overall though. The fun activities the school does makes up for the food. The activities are fun and exotic, just like traditions the school has.
