My 曼彻斯特 Story

Tell us about yourself!

I’m an incoming sophomore with majors in business management 和 educational studies. On top of that, I am looking to add a music minor. I am a firm believer in the three big parts of life – family, friends,, of course, board games! When I’m not spending time with my family or friends, you’ll definitely find me at a card table playing board games. While the classics like Monopoly, Sorry or Life are always fun, my true love for board games lies with the more complex ones like Wingspan, Scythe or MTG (Magic: The Gathering).

 

What are you involved in on campus?

While on campus, I am an active member of the varsity tennis team, A Cappella Choir, Chamber Singers, American Chemical Society, College of Business Club, 曼彻斯特 Aspiring Educators, STAT 和 the 荣誉项目.

 

Why did you choose 曼彻斯特 University?

I chose 曼彻斯特 for a couple of reasons. The first is the size. I come from a very small town in 印第安纳州 called Union City. I felt like 曼彻斯特 just offered me a chance to be at home while not being at home. The second reason I chose 曼彻斯特 was the way that everyone made me feel welcome. Throughout the course of my senior year in high school, I had numerous professors, coaches 和 admissions staff reach out with personal letters that just made me feel like I was a part of their family, 和 I hadn’t even decided to attend there yet.

 

What do you see yourself doing after 曼彻斯特?

After 曼彻斯特, I plan on entering the education field as a business teacher 和 slowly working my way into high school administration. Once I reach an administrative position, I plan to work my way into education politics at the state level in hopes of helping rework the current system into something that can become the future of our state.

 

Tell us about your community involvement in your hometown of Union City.

Over the course of my life, I have been a part of some amazing activities 和 events in my hometown of Union City, 印第安纳州. As a son of two very impactful educators in my community, I was always able to tag along 和 work on some incredible projects. Union City is home to many unique events like State Line Heritage Days, A 社区 Christmas, or our community Thanksgiving. I can proudly say that I have been a part of these as long as I can remember. Whether it meant volunteering insane hours to help put on a truly jaw-dropping Christmas display or bringing my love for acting to the people on stage for our yearly melodramas, my community involvement resume is seemingly endless.

 

How have you been spending your summer?

This summer, I have had the privilege to work as a grant writer at my old high school. Through this opportunity, I have learned the ins 和 outs of the administrative side of a school. 除此之外, I’ve been doing yard work, remodeling bathrooms, 打网球, 和 playing several rounds of golf.

 

What advice would you give to an incoming 曼彻斯特 student?

If I had to give any advice to an incoming 曼彻斯特 student, I’d tell them not to be afraid to put themselves out there. Looking back on my first year, I’ve realized that my whole first semester seemed to be wasted because I was too afraid to go out 和 meet new people. Once I broke out of my shell, I met some amazing people who have made my time at 曼彻斯特 so much more worthwhile. The sooner you put yourself out there, the sooner you’ll be able to get the full 曼彻斯特 experience!
