Mansfield Hall generally recommends that students take no less than two and no more than three courses during their first couple semesters. The reasoning behind this is that a reduced course load not only allows students to participate in all of the other facets of the Mansfield Hall experience; it also allows the student to begin college from a place of strength and set themselves up for success as much as possible. The transition to college can be challenging on many levels, including being in a new place, forming new relationships, maintaining a new schedule, and experiencing a new level of academic expectations. We have found that students benefit from a schedule that allows them time for integration and assimilation for all of these changes.
