I have really enjoyed my time at Plymouth State. During the course of my 4 years there, PSU appointed a new president who has helped create some new initiatives on campus, including the development of clusters and changes in campus/student life. Many of these changes have helped us move towards a more collaborative climate among students and faculty of various academic backgrounds. I am really grateful to have been a part of these changes, and I look forward to seeing what other awesome stuff is to come for PSU!

Plymouth State University is a place where everyone has a place. Everyone is given every opportunity to share their thoughts, ideas, and most importantly share their voice! If I hadn't chosen to come here I would have never discovered my passion for social justice issues. Without Plymouth, I wouldn't have ever thought about standing up for so many issues that need to be talked about. Thanks to Plymouth I'll always have a school that backs me on my choice to step out and speaks up.
Plymouth State University is a beautiful campus located in the heart of New Hampshire at the gateway to the White Mountains and Lakes Region. Graduate programs are offered in a variety of concentrations and levels including Masters, Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS), and Doctorate (EdD and DPT), as well as formats including face-to-face, blended/hybrid, weekend intensive, and fully online. I am currently enrolled in the Masters of Arts in Personal and Organizational Wellness with a concentration in Personal Approaches to Transformation and Healing. The courses in my particular program are offered in a weekend intensive retreat style format which I love. I work full time and am a mother to two school-aged children. The course format enables me to fit pre-work and post-work into my busy schedule and also enjoy the rich interactions during the 3-day weekend course meetings.
