My experience so far in Mitchell has been great!! The people here in Mitchell are very nice and genuine and they make you feel welcome. I recently moved here about a month ago for school and I'm haveing a great time! I like that everyone in Mitchell looks out for one another when their neighbors go out of town or they observe things we don't see ourselves. If I could have one thing to change it would be the construction. They have made great progress and I am hoping it is finished by the time winter rolls around.

The education for which I came to Mitchell School for is the best kind of quality education there is in my own experience anyways because not only do we learn all things in our classes but we get help when we don't understand and for me that's the best kind of school. The people here are amazing and nice to they are welcoming and hard working, I remember my first day here and someone showed me around the school and explained to me where all my classes are at. And still to this day we are good friend. The community help I get from Mitchell is outstanding with all the resources. My experience in Mitchell is fairly well and if I had to choose to move here again I would. The atmosphere in this area for the future is amazingly good because I know that in times of crisis we are going to be here for each other.
I like Mitchell and the colleges. The people here are very friendly, but I am from Sioux Falls and the drivers here aren't that great.
