Millersville is a very safe community, mainly due to being a college town. There are Millersville Borough Police and Millersville University Police that patrol. Millersville contains Penn Manor School District's Eshleman Elementary School and Penn Manor High School. College-wise, Millersville University is located in Millersville. Millersville has many places to eat, such as Two Cousin's Pizza, Jake's Wayback Burgers, Tropical Smoothie, Sheetz, etc. For the most part, properties in Millersville are up-kept and nice by their owners. Lancaster City is only located a few miles from Millersville too.

I moved to Millersville two weeks into my junior year of high school. I love the friendly environment of Millersville and Millersville University‘s campus which is right next to my house. I feel like Millersville University (where I am going for college) is a very welcoming place and adds to the whole morale of the town of Millersville. My favorite part of Millersville is the people and how it is surrounded by a woodsy area, along with many beautiful parks. The only thing I haven’t liked about Millersville so far is the location to my school and my friends. I used to only have to drive a minute to my school and now I have to drive 30 to 40 minutes. Other than that Millersville is a really beautiful place we can meet really good people and I’m looking forward to starting my four years of college there.
This is a small and quaint town; there is a lot to do nearby with downtown Lancaster being only a five-minute drive away, but the borough itself is rather quiet. Of course, there is a university located here, so you may drive past the occasional party, but it´s usually not much of a disturbance. The public schools are ranked among the best in the state, so if you are a parent, there is a good chance that your children will get at least a satisfactory education. The real estate market is diverse, so there is something for nearly every price range, but for the most part, the houses are affordable.
Millersville is overall a neat small town for those who are not attracted to the bustle of the big city but still crave a sense of community and warmth. There are great places to eat, nice people to meet, and while it´s not paradise, Millersville is still a wonderful place to live.
