Parent / Family Weekend

September 23-25, 2022

Parents and family members are invited to join their student on campus for a weekend of fun, informational sessions, and other opportunities to connect with the Plymouth State community.


Lunch Buddies

We understand that college can be a major adjustment and takes time to get used to. During that transitional time, visiting Prospect Dining Hall can be a daunting adventure if you don’t know who to sit with or how to navigate the dining hall. Lunch Buddies offers a weekly group of students who will meet in the Hartman Union Building (HUB) and walk over to Prospect together to enjoy a meal, these groups are led by past Orientation Leaders to help break the ice and spark conversation.


Parent / Family Podcast

Loved Ones in the Loop is for any loved one of our students. Hosted by Student Life Staff, each episode will bring in one of our campus partners to discuss what is going on with students and how loved ones can support that student, regardless of their location. With new episodes each month, we look forward to partnering with you to help support PSU students!
