I was 25 and working a part time I did not enjoy and decided to give college another try. Mansfield was a local college to me, but offered a degrees I was interested in. The location of MU is great for anyone wanting to pursue a career in outdoor recreation, geology, environmental studies etc because it sits in the mountains of Pennsylvania surrounded by many State parks and wonderful natural settings. The atmosphere of the school is close knit. Classes are smaller in number and you are able to have a personal relationship with the professors. The library is big and beautiful one of my favorite locations on campus. The town of Mansfield is small but nice. Just down the road you have a Main Street with a local cafe, bars, and some small shops. All faculty at MU is more than willing to help.

I went to visit the place twice and I instantly fell in love. I love the area, the programs they offer, the connections with students, I can't wait to attend this fall!
Mansfield is a great school but is currently struggling with enrollment. In terms of change, I think for the good of the school that it needs to begin recruiting from more rural areas that would house potential students that would love the mountain atmosphere. As a school overall, the food is fine, the dorms are great. There is a lack of activities, but mostly because no one at the school attends them (Usually in the winter because its too cold). I love MU personally
