Here's Plymouth in a nutshell:AverageArt & Design Department
Here's Plymouth in a nutshell:

- Take all the underachievers from your NH high school (the C+ students who never cared about school and only came to college for a job/because they had to).

- Put them in a university consisting of 4000 other underachievers from various high schools in NH and MASS in the middle of nowhere (the closest city with over 10000 people is Laconia which is an hour away by car. Concord is 1.5 hours away. There is nothing to do in either.)

- Leave them with nothing to do on campus but drink and party and fight with each other.
- Watch everything go to hell by the third week of school.I regret not working harder in HS so I wouldn't had to have come here. Next year and I'll be out. The drama at this place is ridiculous and it feels like HS all over again.

To be honest, this place is not forAverageBiology
To be honest, this place is not for the people who dislike the cold, straight up, through and through. I was not a huge skier/snowboarder and i did not come here with that intent and it shows its true colors now that if you do not like that here then you should reconsider.

The thing is was that this school was a lot of fun when i first arrived here in the fall. There were alot of parties around and it wasnt too hard to find one. But that changed, very very fast. Plymouth state got put on Playboy's #9 party school in the nation, there is not a true science to the selection, just a few dbags i guess made a write up about it and it got picked when a couple people voted for it. For a school of only 4,000, in a EastbumF&*^ town like plymouth, New Hampshire, it turns into a big deal for the school. The school cracked down on the partying alot, I have probably been to more parties that have been broken up than not broken up, its pretty annoying and extremely irritating considering there is nothing else to do there other than go to parties.I came to the school with high expectations and as the time has gone I have made some great friends that I can realistically see myself being close with for years to come and for people that love the outdoors and snowboarding, its great and I am not trying to downplay the school like its a prison, its far from it. But i personally can say I have numerous regrets coming here and this is a school that involves alot of thought before going to. Its not a school for everyone.

Aside from the beautiful, mountainous surrounding area, therNot so brightCriminal
Aside from the beautiful, mountainous surrounding area, there is hardly anything redeeming about Plymouth State University. The campus is mediocre, the teaching is passable, and the social life is virtually nonexistent unless you're interested in partying every single night. There is an atmosphere of chaos in the air every single night. If you ever wish to get some sleep, I wouldn't hold your breath.

Students tend to be either party-hard jocks who pound on your doors all night or, alternatively, the type of strange looking, sketchy somebodies who stare at you for uncomfortable amounts of time. The girls are as satisfying to behold as the campus, not a complete eyesore whilst still remaining a trashy disposition.

Here creativity is stifled and the "individual" is virtually nonexistent.
There is one aspect of the school, however, that I am thankful I involved myself in as it provided me with experiences I?m sure I never would have had otherwise. The Outdoor Center offers some really exciting experiences at very low costs. If you are determined to go to PSU, get involved here.
