Elizabeth Moss

by Kaitlyn Estep | Oct 02, 2023

Tell us your name, pronouns, major, year, and hometown.

My name is Elizabeth Moss, but you can call me Liz. My pronouns are she/they. I'm from Greenville, Ohio, and this is my first year at MU! I'm working towards a major in elementary education with a minor in peace studies.


What are you involved in at Manchester? (campus jobs, internships, sports, clubs, etc.)

I'm a part of the Theater Society, Kenapocomoco Coalition, Simply Brethren, and Manchester Aspiring Educators. On top of that, I hold two campus jobs as a Social Media Ambassador and a Spartan Ambassador!


If you're on a sports team (Esports included) why do you enjoy playing that sport? 

I recently joined the cheer team! It's my first time cheering, and I'm absolutely loving it!


Why did you choose Manchester University?

I chose Manchester because of its fantastic education program and the incredible opportunities it offers. You won't find such fantastic opportunities anywhere else.


What is your favorite thing about Manchester University?

The sense of home. The moment I set foot on campus, I knew this was where I belonged. Manchester has an incredibly welcoming and supportive community.


What do you see yourself doing after Manchester?

I see myself having my own elementary classroom, teaching and inspiring young kids to grow, learn and flourish their creativity in education. My goal is to let kids be kids while giving them the education they deserve.


Who is your favorite professor and why?

My favorite professor so far has to be Michael Staudenmaier. He teaches my U.S. History for Elementary Educators class, and I'm really enjoying it. He doesn't just feed us info; he tosses us questions that make us think deeply about history and how we can use it in our future classrooms. He makes this class engaging, and I enjoy having those deep discussions in his class!


What is a Manchester bucket list item you'd like to check off?

I would love to try something new each year at Manchester, whether it's stepping out of my comfort zone or trying a new sport, club, class, etc.


What is something someone wouldn't know just by looking at you?

I love to do archery! I did it for seven years at my high school.


What is your favorite Manchester memory?

My favorite Manchester memory has to be all the movie nights my friends and I host in my room or any time I spend with them! We always share laughs, make memories and have a blast. Those are the memories that last forever!
