More About Erica

Why did you choose to come to Plymouth State?


“I chose Plymouth State because the University is close to my hometown and I love the look and feel the campus. Plymouth is the perfect size, it has a great business program, which is my major, and I love the surroundings around the campus, the skiing and hiking.”

What do you like best about your major/academic program?


“The thing that I like best about the business department and classes that I take is that a lot of the teachers are very friendly and approachable. Even if I am taking a class in a lecture hall the teachers still get to know you and will recognize you when they see you outside the classroom.”

What activities are you involved in outside of class?


“Outside of class I am a member and the vice president of Women’s rugby, I am a member of MAPS (which stands for Marketing Association of Plymouth State) I am an admission rep (so I give tours of campus) and I work on the Rec. Programs marketing team. At work I work with other students to maintain Rec. Programs Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and we take pictures and videos of all the events and intramural sports that Rec. Programs run.”

How have you changed since you first arrived at PSU?


“I have changed a lot since I started attending PSU. In high school I was very quiet when talking to people and not very outgoing. Since then I have become very outgoing and gained self confidence. Everything that I have done while at Plymouth State has helped to build my self confidence.”

More About Dan

Why did you choose to come to Plymouth State?


“I chose to come to Plymouth State because of its beautiful location at the crest of the White Mountains. The small town and tight community that Plymouth offers also appealed to me! Every time I come back to Plymouth it is as if I can take a step back and be at ease…it’s like coming home.”

What do you like best about your major/academic program?


“I love being a part of the education program at Plymouth State. Since my teachers are teaching us how to teach, I feel that they truly understand the entire student/ teacher dynamics; what works and what does not. For example, it is rare that I ever have to take a formal exam, because my teachers understand the advantages to hands on approaches and the different learning styles of their students.”

How have you changed since you first arrived at PSU?


“I feel that I have fully discovered who I am and the person I strive to be. It was never until I went to Plymouth that I started counting down the days until summer ended!”

More About Adam

If you could choose one favorite thing about going to school here, what would it be?


“I would have to say the student population is my one favorite thing about PSU. I never feel like a number around campus and like that my professors know me by my first name. That was definitely one concern I had when choosing a school and have had no problems so far here at PSU.”

How have you changed since you first arrived @ PSU?


“In the beginning, I was definitely shy and nervous about starting my college career. Going into my second year, I have made some great new friends and am beyond excited to be back. ”
