Manchester University Reviews

My experience at Manchester University thus far has consisted mainly of two things. One being, the immense amount of work that is done every day. Here at Manchester, I tend to find myself studying a lot more than I normally would, reviewing a lot more, and taking a lot more notes. In doing these three things, I find college to be a lot less stressful, although it is still extremely time-consuming. The second thing being, the community as a whole. I have never been inaugurated into a more diverse, loving, or friendly environment. Manchester has an excellent way of making you feel like you are home and for me, that is extremely important because I tend to get homesick more often than most.

I absolutely love Manchester. The small town location and the feeling of family overcomes all doubts! Manchester is a great college and suites everyone.
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.
