I am applying for a job in MIllersville PA (at the university). Can anyone tell me about the area? Is it friendly? Welcoming to newcomers (from out of state)? How is the economy? My spouse designs homes--is there a market for new homes there (or in surrounding areas)?

I would appreciate hearing your personal perspectives. Thanks!

Millersville is a nice, clean, safe typical college town. People take a long time to warm up to outsiders. County's economy is sound. Southern Lancaster County is growing by leaps and bounds, so the new housing market is as good as can be expected, considering the market right now. Hope this helps alittle.

It's a really lovely area. My kids go to College at Millersville University. This is my sons 5th year and last and my daughter 3rd and last.

We have a townhouse just on the edge of Lancaster- it's actually only 2 miles away from the college.

People seem to be friendly- hubby and I do not go down to often and the townhouse is for the kids(who are 25 and 22 ) so they do not want Mom and Dad always hanging around.

Lancaster area is booming with building and I notice people pride themselves with having well maintained homes.

You should have no problem there.

Good Luck..

Lancaster is definenetly up and coming with a solid economy. I actually grew up in Millersville and will probably always consider Lancaster Co. my "home" even when not living there because I've realized how special it is. The college is nice and the best performing school in the state system of higher education.
