3 College Freshman

Local Area: Coming from a bigger city transitioning to a small town life was hard. The limited hours of shops and food places was a shock. There are also perks to the small town life though, the community is very friendly and welcoming. You will see people from the community at most of the sporting events.

Local Area: Mitchell is a great community to be in. We share it with one technical school that pulls in a lot of students. It is fair to say that our population shrinks every summer when college kids leave town!

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Our town is full of scenery, the best part of South Dakota is the sunsets and sunrises people always have post of them on facebook.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I like how the college is safe and follows all the safety procedures to keep it a great atmosphere. Dakota Wesleyan always has activites going on that everyone can participate in. There are cultural events that are very fun to get involved with. There is a wellness center and weight room that is open to everyone; there are times when the gym and weight room are reserved for practices, but there is a recreation center in town as well. The local atmosphere of the town is very welcoming, everyone is very friendly and supportive.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: So Much Homework, Few Things to Do – Mitchell is a smaller town, with few sit-down restuarants and other activities. It does have a larger high school and a technical college. There is little shopping, but most residents seem to appreciate the positive affects college students have on the Mitchell community. Mitchell includes the world's only Corn Palace, which is pretty cool if you have never visited it before!
