Sandy McGarr

Sandy McGarrHometown:
A little bit of everywhere! Before moving to New Hampshire, I came from Charlotte, North Carolina, Leysin, Switzerland and Yanbu, Saudi Arabia. It really is hard to pinpoint my hometown. I have family and friends from all around the world.

Education:
BS, Business Administration, Lees-McRae College

Why Plymouth?
We moved to the Plymouth area in 2001 to raise three wonderful, crazy kids. The attraction was skiing in the winter and the lakes in the summer. I was fortunate enough to land a job here at PSU in the fall of 2004 doing what I love to do – recruiting and educating students about furthering their education. You will find here at PSU that everyone is genuinely nice. It is a strong, friendly, and caring community – both on and off campus.

Favorite Movie?
Pretty Woman

Favorite Plymouth Eatery?
Six Burner Bistro. The food is really good!

Favorite Spot on Campus?
The Tower Room in Lamson Library. The view is beautiful.

Mac or PC? Mayo or Miracle Whip? Chocolate or vanilla?
Both!! Both!! Vanilla!

Favorite Quote?
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” – Steve Jobs

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!”
