The academics were not bad, but certainly nothing to rave about. I had some really incredible teachers, and some that were really boring or unhelpful. Boring I can deal with, everyone has a lecture or two that is painful to sit through. What I can't deal with is a teacher who is annoyed when you ask questions and is uninterested in helping you to accell. Thankfully I only had a few of these teachers, but they still really left a bad impression. There are some really good programs, like meteorology, and adventure education. I started out as an adventure education student, and while I really liked my classes, it didn't seem like a substantial enough degree for what we were paying. I ended up attempting to design my own major, which went really well at first, my advisers were really helpful, but unfortunately I had placed a large emphasis of the program on philosophy. The philosophy courses were cancelled semester after semester because I was one of only 3 students who would sign up for them. So I ended up leaving Plymouth in my junior year. If you're a huge ski/snowboard bum, then this is your mecca. I've skied since I was a child, but I've never been that enthused by it, and I don't love the cold.A little bit about the dorms quick. I'm told that freshman dorms at college are never ideal, but I think that other universities must have had better options. They accepted too many incoming freshman the year I started so I was stuck in a triple in a room made for 2. Students were not remotely respectful of the living space, so janitors didn't care that much about cleaning up after them. I remember there was vomit on one of the walls in the stairwell for about 2 months before it was cleaned. I was so sick that semester from how gross the dorm was and living in cramped quarters that I had to drop 2 of my classes. I ended up getting a doctor's note the second semester to move into the upperclassmen dorms so that I would be healthy enough for my studies. I loved Langdon Woods. The new LEED certified building was great, and I had my own bedroom in a 4 bedroom suite. My roommates were super mellow too, not big partiers which was helpful.
