Students Return to Plymouth State University

August 27th, 2003 by Adam

Sunday, August 31 is move-in day at Plymouth State University. University Police are preparing for the return of approximately 3,500 students over the Labor Day weekend, and will use the same traffic plan (map) introduced last to better direct University related traffic, and help alleviate congestion in the downtown area.

Electronic signage will be positioned on Interstate 93 just south of Exit 25 directing all University traffic to Exit 26.

• Students moving into White Mountain Student Apartments will be directed south on Main St., then west on to Merrill St.

• Students who will reside in Grafton, Smith, Hall, Mary Lyons or Blair Halls will travel south on Main St. after exiting, and then west on High St.

• Students moving into Pemi and Belknap Halls will follow Rt. 25 west to Highland St., and follow Highland St. east to Langdon St.

University police will be stationed throughout the community to assist drivers.

Additionally, members of PSU’s athletic teams and Greek life will be on hand to help students unload vehicles and move in to on-campus housing. Their assistance will further aid police in maintaining the flow of traffic through the community.

“Our goal is to facilitate a smooth and efficient move-in experience for all students,” says University Police Chief John E. Clark. “We, along with the Plymouth Police Department, will coordinate the flow of traffic on move-in day, keeping local traffic flowing and ensuring roadways are accessible to emergency vehicles.”
