Mansfield University(MU) is a small town rural college. It may be a small town rural college but there are plenty of things to do on campus and off campus. Most important MU offers small classes, that allow students to have more interaction with their professors.

smaller classes and more knowledgeable professors are a perfect reason to attend mansfield. countless clubs and events make mansfield not only a learning university, but one with a great social environment.
Andrew from Ulster, PA
Mansfield University is set in the mountains, surrounded by the changing colors of autumn and attended by the most wonderful people one could ever meet. Everyone wants to help one another settle in and find their niche in the university life, leaving no college freshman behind as we all climb through each week of graduation. At Mansfield University, there is always something to do and someone to do things with!
