This week at MNU the campus hosted an event called MAX. This event is one that i had a lot of fun going to as a high school student. Students come from all across the district to participate in a wide variety of events. This year we hosted around 700 students!
Last week we decided that we wanted to go down to the Lake District for the day and climb a mountain/hill. It felt like a mountain, but I think technically it is classified as a hill. Then we were on our way back to NTC and saw a sign for Blackpool and decided to take a detour through there before heading back to campus!
As some of you know I am a junior business student. This semester I’m in a class called organizational behavior. In organizational behavior we do all of our projects and tests in groups. That’s right I said tests. Today my group presented to the class and one of our assignments was to create a video together. Below I have attached the video that we created for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy! Elisa DavisRead More
Two weeks ago I took my second trip down to Newcastle. My friend, Karl, was performing in Durham Cathedral for a youth event that his church was supporting. We decided to go down for the weekend and go to the beach, eat some of the best fish and chips I’ve ever had, and see a few castles! We saw Bamburgh castle which was right on the beach and was near an adorable little seaside town. Then Sunday we headed up to Durham and spent the day there and hung out in the cathedral most of the day.

One of our favorite places to hang out on campus is in Campus Center. So we decided since we didn’t have classes we would hang out in Campus Center and relax!
One of the great things about living in England, is that you can randomly decide to go to Wales when you wake up one morning! Since Manchester is kind of close to the border we decided to procrastinate on our essays that we were supposed to be writing and take a day trip to Wales! We went to Conwy, which has Conwy Castle and Britain’s smallest house. It is a super small town so we were only there for about an hour or two and then were like “Whelp. That was fun.” and came back to Manchester. It was a great study break!
P.s. Fun fact: After Wales I have officially been to every country in Great Britain!
Hey Friends! Check this very short video of our time at an MNU basketball game! We sat (actually stood) in the student section, painted our chests, and cheered excessively. Every sporting event here at MNU is always a blast. Thanks for watching!
This last weekend I decided to take a weekend trip to Brussels, Belgium which is also known as the Capital of Europe! This was my first trip that I have taken alone and it was really nerve wracking at first. Being in a foreign country all on your own where you don’t speak the language is pretty scary, but it is also extremely empowering when you realize that you can navigate around all on your own! I met some really amazing people along the way and even though I took this trip on my own, I was actually rarely alone for most of it! Literally all I ate for those three days was waffles, frites (fries), and chocolate. There was a chocolate shop every five steps you took and every single one of them had samples of chocolate for you to try. I didn’t have any plans coming to Belgium except to get a waffle. It was so worth taking a trip to a foreign country just for their delicious golden waffles- I would totally recommend it!
