More than 300 staff, faculty and administrators celebrated the start of a new academic year Friday, September 6 at the President’s Fall Dinner in the HUB multi-purpose room.

University Provost Dr. Julie Bernier introduced the newest staff, faculty and administration, welcoming them to the PSU community.

President Sara Jayne Steen extended her greetings and noted the Fall Dinner is one of the University’s most joyous events.

“This is truly a wonderful event; it’s an opportunity to bring together the PSU community to celebrate our common cause and our common commitment. I am so grateful to all of you for all you do to make what happens here, happen.”

President Steen also shared with the attendees her recent travels around New Hampshire, and hearing many unsolicited compliments about PSU.

Steen also read excerpts of some letters send to the University complimenting the quality of staff and education, including a Health Human Performance alum, class of ’88, who is now a University Athletic Director, who said, “I am continually impressed with the great things happening at Plymouth State, and I’m so proud of whats being accomplished.”
