Plymouth State Named to Parade Magazine’s College A-List

August 25th, 2010 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.-
A national magazine has named Plymouth State one of the best small schools in the country by including it in their college A-list ranking. In its August 1 issue, Parade magazine enlisted 43 top high school guidance counselors nationwide to choose the best schools in a variety of categories. The guidance counselors “recommend outstanding schools that often fly under the radar,” and PSU is rated as one of the top small state schools.

Rick Barth, PSU’s Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, said the ranking is impressive due to the people responding to the survey.

“I cannot imagine a better group of professionals to be recognized by than guidance
counselors,” said Barth. “By the nature of their positions, guidance counselors truly understand which colleges and universities are committed to student success.”

Plymouth State University is a regional comprehensive university offering a rich, student-focused learning environment with an enrollment of approximately 4000 undergraduate and more than 3,000 graduate students. The 170-acre campus offers a New England classic look combined with state-of-the-art facilities including the Lamson Library and Learning Commons, the Boyd Science Center, and Langdon Woods, a LEED certified, environmentally conscious residence hall.

Founded in 1871 as a teacher training school, Plymouth State University is part of the University System of New Hampshire and accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
