4 College Freshman

Athletics: Hockey draws the most fan support. The new ice rink is great. Football draws a good crowd.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: High demand for premium locations. Almost all of them are only a few minute walk from campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: mostly pizza places down town and a few bars. The Lucky Dog is a great bar. Main Street Station has great breakfast and prices are cheap. If you have access to a car there are plenty of places close by.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Certain professors are very strict when it comes to attendance. Even with a legitimate explanation some of them will not cut you any slack. For social infractions, i.e. alcohol, they will give you a warning and after your second warning you have to take a course on the dangers of alcohol. Freshman are cut some slack based on the severity of the infraction. Learn from your mistake and move on.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Typical of most financial aid experiences. Office staff is friendly and offer a lot of information.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Small campus so word travels fast about parties. Off campus events are easy to find and usually easy to get into.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Decent food for campus dining. Menus don't change very often. Very clean facilities. Staff is nice. I wish there were more options with the meal plan. I purchased the basic plan and I don't use it enough.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Clean dorms but could use some updating. Small campus so dorms are close to classes. Bathrooms are clean but could use a few extra showers. Floor meetings encourage interaction with others on the floor. Rules are enforced but it takes a few warnings before anything serious would happen to you.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Decent rooms but need some updating. Bathrooms are always clean. A few more showers would be nice. Floor meetings encourage social interaction. Dorms are close to classes which is nice during the winter. Good value.

2 College Junior

Administration: If you try smoking pot or drinking in a dorm, you will very likely be caught. Professors are also anal about attendance.

College Junior

Scholarships: I do not have any scholarships or anything. I don't know.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: The only thing to do on this campus is drink and do drugs.

Campus Food: I chose to live in an apartment, mainly so I wouldn't have to have a meal plan. There are very few vegetarian options.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms on this campus are mostly awful. The buildings are ugly, the rooms are ugly and have poor lighting. Mary Lyon is very nice but a standalone. There is not much community at all, nor any effort to foster any.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am only a Freshman and have never lived off-campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: If you're looking for fast food, you have to have a car. The only fast food, it is 5 minutes, by car, over the highway just outside of town. For any late-night dining after around 10, you only have two options, if you're lucky. The majority of the restaurants are either Asian-related cuisine, or a classic pizza-and-sub shop. There are a few exceptions.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I love the RD and CAs in my building, they are all super friendly, and there for you when you need an older friend. They are always there to help. I wish they could be even more stringent about noise, particularly outside of the building at night. Noise inside is hard to control since sound travels through the heating pipes, which drives everyone in the building bananas. I've never had a problem with administration, and I understand why they have to be strict on particular policies, and accept that for what it is. To keep us safe, some liberties must be restricted.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I don't really know much about filing for aid, I completed the FAFSA, which was a nightmare with my family, but applied very late to Plymouth and only received $1000 in scholarships from the school.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I chose to not party, and I find those that do tend to be very rude.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I can go into the dining hall with a completely empty stomach, and by the time I have had a few mouthfuls of what I had expected to be decent food, I'll return my dish to go try to scope out some other, seemingly edible food to eat. I always get a cup of water to drink before I go to get food, because I know I will not end up eating very much, and it helps to make my stomach feel more full. Sometimes the pizza is okay, other times it tastes like cardboard with mystery plastic on top. The burgers are usually a good bet, but sometimes they are so salty they are barely palatable. Salad seems like a good bet, but usually what isn't wilted is warm, and the dressings taste awful. The only option they ever have in the vegetarian/gluten free line is nachos with tofu/bean chili. EVERY. NIGHT. Avoid the main entree, unless it looks okay, and even then, be cautious. Usually the "made to order" line is okay, but I had a bad experience with the steak bombs - so much gristle. The sandwich line is okay, but the meats are always very salty - which isn't really Sodexo's fault themselves, I suppose, but it still isn't appealing. The Union Grille and the Cafes are alright, nothing except coffee is made at the cafes and the Union Grille is ridiculously marked-up in price, so you run out of flex cash really quick if you're trying to avoid the dining hall. One meal at the Grille is usually about $10 at least, on average for myself.

Campus Housing: I select bad, because the buildings are not in the best repair. Most of them are older buildings; for example, the dormitory I live in was built in the 1950s, and has been renovated, so I've heard, but in appearance, is still in disrepair. The heat in the individual rooms is ridiculously high, but the hallways and lobbies are freezing. The wifi is awful and only works for five minutes at a time (if you're lucky) before you'll have to troubleshoot and reconnect in some buildings, and the furniture (with the exception of the sofas and stuffed chairs) are in bad shape (in most residence halls). I have no issue with any of the CAs or the RD, they are wonderfully friendly, but the building itself is in awful shape. I also appreciate the people who clean the building, but since they have so much to clean in so little time, I honestly didn't know that they even touched the showers until two weeks into second semester. The showers on my floor have rusted pipes in them, with the paint peeling off, with black mold growing in the grout between the tiles, which is also growing on a pipe above the entrance to both showers. The bathroom itself also has clearly not been revamped since the 70s or 80s, as everything is teal and tan, with darker teal swirls. I have not been very impressed with anything about living on campus. The students on campus are rude and boisterous, constantly screaming outside the dorms from Thursday to Saturday night. Don't even get me started on the food. Sodexo is quite possibly some of the worst food I have eaten, depending on the day. There is a rumor that goes around every so often that they put laxatives in the food to get us to eat more, more frequently, and if you look on the app Yik Yak, there are daily complaints about the food making people sick or warnings about how the food is that day. If you go anywhere other than the dining hall, everything is preposterously marked up in price.

Local Area: PSU is really built right into the heart of the Plymouth community. The townies are a bit sketchy but are very respectful of the college and appreciate what the school gives back to the community.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a very good late night option and most of the restaurants on main street deliver rate to your dorm.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't personally live off-campus but I have been to the apartments and they seem very nice.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Plymouth is very good at giving students and is an inexpensive school to begin with. There are many scholarship opportunities through the school.
