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 Ava

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


“I love that the professors are so willing to get to know me and help me out in avenues outside of their classroom. They want to see me succeed. Their excitement and energy about the subject matter is contagious.”

What is your favorite place to hang out on campus? Off campus?


“On campus my favorite place is definitely the HUB. There is always something going on there, even in the dead of winter! When I’m off campus I love hiking and with so many hikes close it is hard to pick just one favorite.”

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


“Location: You can’t ask for better east coast skiing. With three mountains so close it is possible to go to class in the morning and head up to the mountain for some afternoon skiing. Every outdoor recreational activity you could possibly want to do is possible in Plymouth, be it hiking, rock climbing, or paddling. Being two hours outside of Boston is also key—it’s nice to have city life close too if you need a weekend escape.”
