Plymouth State University Reviews
Do NOT go here if you identify anywhere within the LGBT community! I am constantly facing harassment and transphobia, even from administration. They keep trying to push minorities out of the way as much as they can by taking away our meeting spaces. The party life is extremely distracting and will affect you if you aren't even involved with it. And the dining hall constantly puts out food that gives students food poisoning and ignores allergy regulations. They throw in random gen-ed's disguised as a "cluster program" to milk you of as much money as possible. There is a reason most people transfer after their freshman year. Save yourself the money. If you want some upsides though, the professors are usually pretty good, especially the theatre department.
Beautiful campus located in the white mountains. Plymouth State was not my first choice but after completing freshman year there I couldn't imagine being a part of any other school community! The staff and professors are super supportive and it being a smaller school students are able to form much more personal relationships with professors to make for a more reliable, unstressful education environment.
The university was welcoming in so many ways and had made the transition from highschool into college quite easy. They have so many opportunities to not only help you get involved whether that may be through your major, joining clubs, or participating in volunteer work on and off-campus. The university isn't the most diverse racially, but they do try and supply resources to accommodate every student's individual needs -culturally, spiritually, financially, and academically. In addition, the faculty on campus strive to meet all student's needs; they are not only mentors but friendly faces on campus ho make you feel seen/heard inside and outside the classrooms.
