4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I like the atmosphere. Everyone is pretty friendly and I like that it's a small town.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Mansfield is a very small town and there is not much around to do expect little shops, fast food, wal-mart, or driving around. The mountains and scenery is beautiful year round. If you want to go to any attractions you have to go about a half hour any way out of the town. The town is very safe for the most part and I have never heard of any instances with problems with the locals towards students.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Mansfield is a small college town, with most businesses college student oriented. There are coffee shops, plenty of fast food restaurants, and a movie theater in the town only 15 minutes away. Everything is easy to get to for college students who can drive or cant, giving students a way to relax when they are not in their studies or in class.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Mansfield is a cute little town, but if you're not staying busy on campus, you will be bored!
