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 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.”
