Plymouth State University is a school that hasBrightCriminal
Plymouth State University is a school that has come a long way from what it used to be. The staff is knowledgeable, but there are a few teachers that don't really know what they are talking about. This, you can find at any University. There are always going to be good and bad teachers. I am a freshman enrolled in the Criminal Justice Program, and have had a total of ten teachers, and only one of the ten would be considered unsatisfactory. The criminal justice program has been awesome so far, and I do feel that I have learned quite a bit from my classes. As for the campus, they have a bunch of programs and activities to do. You just have to look for them, and that shouldn't be hard for a college student to do. As for the people who told you to come here for the skiing/snowboarding, the "hot" chicks, and awesome parties: they lose all accreditation of their reviews. Yes, the town lacks exciting things to do and I do feel that it should add other editions besides a bar because it can get a little boring. Plymouth is overall a good school, and if you choose to go here then make the best out of it. If you really don't like it, then just transfer. If you look past all the ignorant and stupid students you will see that there are highly intelligent people here, trying to get an education. Most of the students that get in don't even last a semester because they were not truly committed or serious about getting an education. Which then leaves all the other students who care and strive to do well and succeed. If you are looking at Plymouth, don't disregard it from all the uneducated and misinformed information from the other comments. If you are serious about getting an education then it doesn't really matter where you go, as long as you make the best of it.

I am the first to admit that IQuite BrightOther
I am the first to admit that I didn't want to go to PSU. However, I have to say that choosing to go here was one of the best decisions I ever made.

The school has a great sense of community; people hold doors open for the students behind them, everyone smiles at everyone and it is very easy to get involved since the student organizations (there are over 100) are so open to welcoming new members in. There is also a very approachable faculty. I have had many teachers give out cell phone numbers to call if students are having trouble with assignments. I have also had teachers offer to go get coffee at the local coffee shop to discuss an assignment, class, career paths, or life in general.

In addition, there is a very accessible administration. The dean of students, and the vp of student affairs can frequently be found in the dining hall eating and talking with students. There is at least one member of the administration at every student senate meeting ranging from the president to the provost to the various vice presidents. The president's cabinet meets with the senate executive board once a month. This is a school and administration that truly care about and listen to their student body.

PSU is also very involved in community service, both locally and worldwide. There are many organizations devoted to this including Alternative Spring Break, PSU Volunteers, Habitat for Humanity, and Ending Genocide Around the World. There are also many students not directly involved in these organizations who volunteer down at the Pemi Youth Center, or who help with construction of the local Habitat houses. I have had both challenging and easy courses here at PSU like any other school. I truly believe that what you get out of your education is what you put into it. I have loved my last three years at PSU and have grown as a student, member of the global community, and most importantly as a person.
