As a graduate school, Mansfield is pretty weak. There are very few graduate degrees offered and most of the classes were not stimulating, but consisted of busy work that was too easy for graduate level work. The campus is in a nice rural setting if you like the outdoors.
Mansfield University is a small college that is located in rural Tioga County in Pennsylvania. It is a relativly safe campus, and blue lights are installed to ensure student's safety. There are many activities that students can participate in, such as SGA, and it is not difficult for students to become involved in campus activities, develop leadership skills, make friends, and do something positive for the campus community. The class sizes are also small, and it makes it easy for students and professors to know one by name and to care about one another not only by grades and the work one produces, but also as a person. Professors desire that students succeed on campus. The only negative drawback to Mansfield University is that it is a suitecase college, and many students go home for the weekend without experiencing what the town offers, such as the concerts at Night and Day and Ten West Expresso. If I had to do it again, I would go to Mansfield University in a heartbeat.
If I had any advice for students, it would be:
1) Realize that professors care about you
2) Participate in activities that occur on campus
3) Explore Mansfield University
4) Make friends
5) Know that your time at Mansfield is going to go quickly
