Fall is just around the corner—you can already feel it in the air! This is my personal favorite season at Plymouth State. Not only is the campus stunning with the changing leaves, but it’s also filled with TONS of great events. IMHO campus events are the perfect way for new students to get involved on campus and a great way for returning students to stay involved. Many of these events are being hosted by organizations we know and love such as the Office of Community Impact, Plymouth State Athletics, Student Life, and more. Here are four campus events you don’t want to miss!
