    I loved Manchester! It is smaller than your traditional college, but that is what makes it great. I like when things are personal and Manchester is like a tight-knit community and everyone knows everyone. You will definitely feel like somebody and everyone will notice you! I have met several of the faculty and believe me when I say that they want what is best for your education. Manchester University offers so many resources to whatever major you choose. I would not change a thing!

    I loved all of the people that I met because they became my best friends. Everyone is so close and you cannot go anywhere on campus without seeing a friendly face. I love the relationships you develop with professor s and coaches and they truly do care for you. I love the small knit community because it makes it feel like home. I always wanted to go to a small school and meet amazing people, and Manchester University has just that!
    I love my school! I chose Manchester University because it was a small town college that felt like home the minute I arrived for a visit. After attending the school myself for a year, that only rang even more true. There was not a single class where I felt that the professor did not have my best interest in their mind. I had a personal relationship with each one, which really helped me keep a positive outlook on my academics. I learned a lot at MU, and being surrounded by people who wanted to help me learn is very encouraging.
