Posted on: March 29th, 2017 by Rebecca

Join us at the Museum of the White Mountains (34 Highland Street) for Climate Change and Water Impact: The Boston Experience, Tuesday, April 4 from 3:30-4:30. This event is free and open to all!

Boston is the fourth most vulnerable city in the U.S. to future climate change impacts.  Over the last several years, the city has been engaged in deep planning to remain vibrant, growing, and safe in the face of the expected changes. This presentation will explain how Boston is preparing for expected climate impacts over the next several decades, especially sea level rise and extreme precipitation.  The city is expected to experience 3-5 feet of sea level rise by 2100, and it will require a dramatic reshaping of the urban form adapt to this new reality.  This process will play out over multiple decades and will present difficult challenges as well as terrific opportunities to reinvent urban life.

Presented by John Cleveland, the Executive Director for the Boston Green Ribbon Commission (www.greenribboncommission.org), a network of business and civic leaders supporting the implementation of the City of Boston Climate Action Plan.

2016-2017 PSU Ski Package Information

Posted on: November 18th, 2016 by Nicole

PSU Community,

Each year the student government works to secure a deal with a local mountain for discounted tickets for the PSU community. This year, three mountains submitted bids and nearly 1,200 students voted. By popular vote the student body selected the package offered by Waterville Valley Resort for our 2016-2017 PSU Ski Package.

(NOTE: Please save this email or bookmark the link below, as it contains all pertinent information regarding the PSU Ski Package at Waterville Valley for the 2016-2017 season.)

Waterville Valley will be announcing their opening day on their webpage soon; you can watch their snow report for more information.

The complete details of the ski package may be found at: www.plymouth.edu/student-government/ski-package/.

Prior to heading to the mountain, please check the eligibility list found on myPlymouth. You can do this by logging in to myPlymouth, selecting the “Services” tab at the top of the page, and looking for the lists under the “General Resources” sub-header. These lists include all undergraduate and graduate students who are currently enrolled in classes, and all faculty and staff currently employed by the University. These lists will change through the season; please be sure to check if your status changes. Lists will be posted and updated by Thanksgiving, before the mountain opens. Any questions regarding the lists can be directed to the Student Activities Office at Student.Activities@Plymouth.edu.

Please be advised that you will not be able to purchase a ticket without TWO forms of photo ID. One of the ID’s MUST be a current Plymouth State University ID. If you do not have a current valid PSU ID, please see the Print Shop/ID Center in the HUB during normal business hours. (M-F 8am-4:30pm)

As a current member of the PSU community, the benefits of the ski package are only applicable to you, but you may purchase a discounted guest ticket. Allowing another person to use your ID to purchase a discounted ticket or misuse of the ski package discounted ticket is against policy and can result in being removed from accessing the benefits of the ski package for the entire ski season. Please see the details of the ski package at the above link for complete details.

Our thanks to the nearly 1,200 students who took the time to vote on the 2016-2017 ski package survey. We hope that you’ll visit our neighbors to the north at Waterville Valley and take advantage of the great snow and affordably priced alpine skiing, nordic skiing, snow boarding, and snow tubing this season.

Mark your calendars for Winter Carnival at Ski Day on Wednesday, February 15, 2017. It’s an annual campus holiday that will be filled with a variety of winter activities this year for everyone to enjoy, as we celebrate the day together as a campus at the mountain.

On behalf of the Student Senate, enjoy the snow!
