Question
Choosing to go to Plymouth State was oneEducation
Choosing to go to Plymouth State was one of the best things I did. When I was a freshman I hated it, at first(the surrounding town is very sad looking and not much do do.) I had even thought of transferring...but the more friends I made and the more I became comfortable in my major I loved it and couldn't even think of transferring. I love that it's a smaller school so you have more individual attention in classes and professors know you by name. At a larger school you dont get that. I felt my classes contributed to my sucess in my career today. It was the best four years of my life and i'm glad I chose to go to PSU.

Question
College is essentially what you make of it.Quite BrightPreMed and Medical
College is essentially what you make of it. If I personally could go back and make a different choice, I would choose to go to a more established school, like UVM or Middlebury. I chose Plymouth mainly because I was a classic underachiever in high school, and I had missed the deadlines for the more academically 'respected' schools. I feel like many of the professors here either a) came here out of default (fallback plan), or b) are longtime profs who are too established here to move somewhere else. The faculty here is, in my opinion, hit and miss. We do have some exceptionally intelligent, standout professors, but we also have a good percentage of downright lackeys.

There are few ambitious students here...at least what I would consider to be ambitious. Most students are local new englanders who came here because it was the next logical step after high school (to quote the other reviewer) and have a particular affinity for living a debaucherous, sloppy lifestyle based mainly on drinking, fornicating, and fighting. Granted, that is part of any college, but excessive drinking is really the 'bread and butter' of a typical Plymouth kid.So, in short, if you have high ambitions in the sciences like medical school or getting into a solid grad progam, it would behoove you to seriously consider another school. There have been plymouth alum who have gone on to become doctors and other respected professionals, but these are relatively rare. From what I know meteorology is pretty solid, and the business department as well.
