I love Plymouth and can’t imagine having gone anywhere else. Like any school it’s not without it’s issues but overall it’s a good school. Class sizes are small and I feel like my professors really care. There’s definitely a group for everyone. If you want to party it’s there. Personally I only partake occasionally but it’s there. The people are great and there’s always someone around. The dorms are a down side. Some of them are better than others but they aren’t the nicest. The food is okay at best. Overall I love it even with its flaws.
Plym has given me so many avenues to grow as a learner, and a member of society. I have learned so much and have created some amazing memories so far. The sense of community is amazing and is probably the best part of our college. From our fun and insane campus traditions (Pumpkins on Rounds) to the annual First Fire, there are so many things that tie our community together no matter your major or activities you do. Plymouth to me doesn't feel like a super-scary imposing college where you have to learn and get a job. Sure that's what we all prepare for but Plymouth makes memories and has oppetunites that other colleges dont. For my first day on campus we did kayak racing on the river for class bonding. What school do you know that does that?!! Plymouth is different. Plymouth is what college should be; a solid education, lots of fun times and great memories, and a place to call home.
Plymouth State is an amazing school for anyone and everyone. You will never get bored at PSU as there are always fun things happening in the dorms and on campus in general. The class sizes are on the smaller side, making it easier to reach out to professors and collaborate with your peers. The dorms are clean and there are options to get into the on-campus singles, suites, and apartments after your freshman year! The food on campus is yummy and there's always something different to try.
To get the best out of Plymouth, you need to be committed and find you place. It is located in a very small town and has a large party scene. Students can easily be sucked into that culture and lose sight of their educational goals. With focus, students will find a wide array of academic interest, committed professors, and a great extracurricular scene. Plymouth State students are dedicated to their school and find the best of both education and the "college life".

If time could be unwound and I could speak to my highschool senior self; I would thank him for getting me where I am today. My seinor year was supposed to be fun and lax. Mine was full of worry about college. Applying for scholarships, touring colleges, getting ready for the next big step in my life. I had no idea how I was going to pay for it. My mother had medical bills which my FASFA helped pay off. Currently I work two jobs and am also a full time student. To my highschool self I would just tell him everything would be fine and we would find a way no matter what. I would tell him college would be easier than he thought it would be; I would tell him there wouldnt be any bullies like highschool. He wouldn't be made fun of .
The best thing about my school is the atmosphere. Everyone, including students, employees and, professors are hands down, the friendliest people i've ever met in my life. Coming from a town near Boston MA, Plymouth NH is a much friendlier and accepting place to be and to thrive as a student. The view is breathtaking and woulnd't change it for the world.
Students who need a degree of luxury should't attend Plymouth State University. The living quarters leave much to be desired and most of the academic buildings haven't changed since the 1950's. Also, those with a higher standard of academic integrity should look elsewhere seeing as classes are not as challenging as other four-year institutions. Students who are looking for shops, restaurants, and other activities outside of school, should steer away from Plymouth State University and seek out a larger college or university.
There really isn't many bad things that I would have to say about the University itself. The location of Plymouth is kind of inconvinient because of the scarce accesibility to big shopping malls. The closest big shopping area is in Tilton, which is 20 minutes away. This doesn't bother a lot of people but girls that love to shop may struggle with this.
I probably brag the most right now about my grades. I have done really well while I have been at Plymouth State. Another thing I frequently talk about with my friends is the discount rates for snowboarding at the local mountain that Plymouth offers.
Everyone is unique and brings something new and interesting to the learning experience.
My school is best known for being a close knit communtiy of educators and students who all work towards a common goal: Getting the student the best education to provide for their futures~ Plymouth State offers many programs to help you reach your goals from study groups, to labs and also offers great recreational activities. Winter sports here are the best!
I wish I had known how hard it would be to be socially active on campus while living at home. Living at home makes it really hard to become involved in many campus activities, and therefore you do not meet as many people.
A person with drive to suceed and excell in their goals.
Not the right fit for me.
I looked at a lot of schools, from online degree programs to going somewhere nearby. I found that Plymouth was able to offer me an online degree that works with my own current employment. I am a teacher seeking an M.Ed. in Adminstration and I will be able to do my internship right in my own building. Plus, I can take most of my classes online. Some of the classes are hybrids, meaning I go to a few classes for the discussions and finish online. In short, the best of both worlds at Plymouth State University!
By far the most frustrating part of school would have to be paying for it. The lack of financial aid available for me as a full time student is extremly displeasing as i am responsible for the entire bill. I beleieve the demand for higher education in today's work force is needed more each year; leading to my decision to stay enrolled in school. With both my parents unable to budget my schooling, more grants, scholarships and "free money" should be given out, especially to students like myself who can adapt and succeed in college.
