PLYMOUTH, N.H.-There may still be snow on the ground, but one sure sign that Spring is just around the corner at Plymouth State is the arrival of Graduates Day.

Typically held on the first Friday in March, Graduates Day is a big step for seniors preparing to take their hard-earned degree out into the ‘real world.’ More than 600 graduating seniors and advanced degree candidates converge on the HUB to pick up their caps and gowns, rain tickets and other valuable information about PSU’s 142nd Commencement ceremony, which is scheduled for May 18. Graduates Day also includes opportunities to speak with staff from Alumni Relations, Financial Aid, Career Services and the College of Graduate Studies offices.
