Why Plymouth?
My question is why not?! There are so many reasons I love Plymouth. When I came here for my interview, I felt the same sense of belonging as when I stepped foot on the campus of my alma mater. Plymouth feels like home to me. I love the quaint, small-town setting; that everyone smiles when you pass them on campus; and the great sense of community and stewardship here.

Favorite Movie?
I’m going to have to go with Good Will Hunting.

Favorite Plymouth Eatery?
Burrito Me. I love Mexican food, and Burrito Me offers a great, fresh, quick meal at a reasonable price.

Favorite Spot on Campus?
Prospect Dining Hall.  They have bottomless Diet Cokes, and it’s a great spot for people watching!

Favorite Pro Sports Team?
New.England.Patriots. Hands down.

Mac or PC? Mayo or Miracle Whip? Chocolate or Vanilla?
Judging by my MacBook, iMac, iPhone and iPad, I’d say Mac. Definitely Mayo. Vanilla for sure.

Favorite Quote?
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

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.”
