Plymouth State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
I am an educator who attended Plymouth's summer M.Ed (counseling) program in my late 30's. My classmates were bright, experienced educators who brought a lot to our classes. With one glaring exception, the professors were both engaged and engaging, and all were helpful and supportive. The work was challenging but not overwhelming. I met great people, learned a fair amount, and earned a degree which helped me go on to some terrific college and university administrative positions. I have recommended Plymouth often.
I initially thought this would be a great school for my daughter, but Ive discovered otherwise. Unless you want your kid to graduate with an alcohol or drug problem, consider another school. Drinking is rampant on this campus, even in broad daylight. This school does not have a reputation as a party school for nothing. There is a culture of drinking. My daughter told me that someone walked right down the hallway of her dorm smoking pot, was caught doing it, and was not even issued a warning. I think the culture of no consequences spills into other bad behavior too. Kids get drunk and do stupid things like jump out of third story windows and through doors. To make matters worse, individuals on campus stole from my daughter and despite sufficient proof were not given any consequences for their actions. This school is in a beautiful location but dont be deceived. Think twice about sending your kid there. I am not being nave when I say its over the top, and not in a good way.
Plymouth State University is a great small town college with a close knit Psychology department. I always felt supported by my peers and professors. The support didnt end when I graduated, since graduation I've been able to maintain communication with professors from my program. I'd highly recommend Plymouth State for any educational program, as the support and sense of community can be seen across all programs.
Plymouth State University offered an individualized education that I would not have been able to find at another school. The class sizes were small, which allowed for tailored instruction by the professors, and you knew that they cared about you as an individual. The close-knit nature of the school, especially in the Music Theater Dance department, resulted in a supportive and caring family who still communicates and encourages each other after graduation.
