How many classes do Mansfield Hall students take?

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.
