The dining hall has a very friendly aptmosphere. When you first walk into the dining hall, the person swiping the student identification cards is always friendly, greeting you with a smile, asking how your day is going, and is very welcoming. When in the dining hall, the variety of food is amazing. There is pizza, tacos, stir fry, hamburgers, cheesburgers, fish, hot foods in a main line with fish, meat, and vegetables. There is also a vegetarian station, deli, pasta line, and salad bar. It is fantastic how all of these options are available to students. We also have gluten free products specific to those with alergies. The staffing is very friendly, the facility is always clean, and there is enough seating for all students. The hours also work very well with student schedules!

Plymouth State University has horrible professors, campus security that could care less about your well-being, sororities that claim to be accepting and then don't let you in for the dumbest reasons, and fraternities that get in trouble for drugging girls. This school has been awful to me and I can't wait to get out of here. I didn't even want to apply or come here but it was all I could afford and I have tried to make the best out of it but it's gotten me no where. Everyone is extremely fake nice and self-centered. DO NOT GO TO PSU!

Everyone at PSU is pretty friendly toward one another, and the school is not so big that you do not see familiar faces when walking to and from classes. There are quite a few events that the school puts on throughout the year, which are definitely worth your time. It's pretty close to ski mountains and it doesn't take very long to walk from one end of campus to the other. Definitely keep in mind that PSU is a party school and there is always something to do on the weekends! You can also have a car there your first year at school which is a plus. When the weather is warm, people really enjoy going to "secret beach" which is not too far away and having bonfires.
