Plymouth State University Reviews
Plymouth State is the most welcoming and excepting university I have ever been to. There's such a diverse student population, there is literally a place for everyone! Not only is it just a beautiful and fun school, the professors are so amazing. They've all been accomplished professionals in their fields and really want their students to do well and accomplish their goals.
Do not go to this school if you value your education. Classes here are an absolute joke. Open note, open book, even open computer "exams" are the norm here. Although most of the professors obviously know their material, many of them have absolutely no idea how to teach. One of my professors constantly gives us assignments that she herself even admits that she can't do, and even goes as far as to tell us that we should find help elsewhere because she can't help us with an assignment that she created. The financial aid office is usually rude and constantly losing important documents. I can honestly say that I got a more valuable education at community college (NHTI) and even at high school than I have at PSU. I could go on but basically the education here is horrible. Don't go here. I wish I hadn't.
As a first semester Freshman I have found Plymouth State to be a great place to go to school. The school really goes out of its way to make sure you are successful, especially in your first semester, you have access to multiple kinds of counselors, and they are very willing to meet according to your schedule. The dining hall isn't great, but its tolerable. The people here are all great, and making friends will be the easiest thing you do here! so far Plymouth State University has been great
