In early March, eight seniors from the Snowden International School in Boston and their parents spent the weekend at PSU, touring the campus, visiting with staff from the admissions office and getting a first taste of college life. The students were applicants to PSU, and most said they would seriously consider attending the school in the fall.
Weekend events for the visiting families included a panel discussion led by current PSU students, a walking tour of downtown Plymouth, a bus tour of area attractions and a buffet dinner held at the Common Man Inn, where the parents spent the night. Students spent the night in residence halls, hosted by student admissions representatives.
On Monday, the students ate breakfast at Prospect Dining Hall, then sat in on morning classes while parents attended information sessions on campus academic, residential and financial aid services.
