A Vibrant Community
Summer is often a quiet time on college campuses, but not for the College of Graduate Studies. In fact, our graduate students enroll in more courses during the summer than during any other term. The campus is alive with cultural events, celebrations, and exciting course offerings. I invite you to come to campus and see what Plymouth State has to offer.
It’s not your typical summer school.
Not all our summer classes are held in classrooms—many are ‘out in the field’ or in other appealing locations. Intensive residential classes (weekend or week-long) at Waterville Valley’s Silver Fox Inn immerse participants in discussions, activities, and studies, with comfortable accommodations and top-notch dining experiences. Business, educational leadership, integrated arts, and counseling—all these areas and more now offer Waterville Valley courses in the summer (and at other times of year, too). Check out the summer course schedule to choose your courses today.
Education without frontiers.
For the seventh consecutive year the College of Graduate Studies with support from the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, will host the Pakistani Educational Leadership Project. This year, 40 individuals representing leadership at all levels of the Pakistani educational system were selected for this intensive, month-long institute. For the first time, participants will earn academic graduate credit through a newly-approved Certificate in Intercultural Education and Leadership.
The sounds of music.
The New Hampshire Music Festival is a highlight of summer in Plymouth, and a great reason to spend time here working toward the completion of your program. All performances this year are on campus at Silver Center for the Arts, a minute’s walk from the College of Graduate Studies. Performances are scheduled from now until August 13 and include chamber music, pops, and classical concerts.
Summer will be gone by then, but please save the date.
The annual Homecoming and Family Celebration (September 27–October 3, 2010) will include a Saturday event to commemorate the late Dr. Dennise Maslakowski, former Associate Vice President for the College of Graduate Studies. We will dedicate a newly built space, within the lobby of our Highland Hall offices, to hold mementos of Dennise’s career as well as a lending library made up of her professional book collection, donated by Irv Gordon, her husband. Dennise’s life and work touched a host of PSU students and New Hampshire educators; we hope to welcome you – and many others—at this occasion.
