    The teachers are absolutely amazing however the rest of the staff is absolutely horrible. They don’t answer you and when they do it’s with attitude. Melinda Phillips is absolutely no help when it comes to accommodations and makes you feel little for searching said accommodations. The food is completely inedible as well. They make good food for visitation days but other than that expect undercooked meat, cold food, hair in your good, and literal garbage in your food. The professors are the only thing that make this campus worth it.

    Mansfield University was a great school to attend. I loved everything about it from my schedule to my courses. Its in a small town where you can walk downtown easily if you are living on campus. Campus is small enough that you can get from one side to the other in plenty of time between your classes without having to worry or rush. The only complaint I ever had while be there was the parking. We had to park on top of what we call "cardiac hill". Its a very steep hill that people have a hard time getting up if they don't want to wait for the shuttle bus. Even my car had trouble getting up the hill in bad weather. Other than that hill Mansfield University was great!
    When I was a student at Mansfield University, my first two years we’re vastly different from my last two years. I realized looking back how naive I was throughout some of the experience. Because the campus is so small, and most majors are secluded to various buildings it feels way more like a high school than a college. It also doesn’t help that some professors think it is okay to meddle into people’s lives and start their own drama. Even though there are many not so good professors there, there are also some great ones. There were 3 or 4 professors that helped me so much throughout my college experience and I am still in contact with them to this day. Those few good professors taught me more than I ever could have imagined. If you want to get a good education, have a specific major in mind, and want a real college experience, DO NOT GO HERE. If you don’t know what you want to do yet, but want to get a college degree, then sure, go to Mansfield.
