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.

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.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I almost joined Delta Zeta, (which is only one of three nationally recognized sororities on campus), however, it was way out of my budget. Greek parties are awesome at Plymouth but I personally would not get involved in anything not nationally recognized due to bad hazing stories I have heard.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Plymouth offers a great variety of majors and it is extremely easy to change majors. I am going for Health Education and Plymouth was definitely the school for me.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I enrolled last spring too late for financial aid. I am starting now for next year's aid, so hopefully I will get some help!

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm enjoying the online classes. The experience definitely varies by professor. One professor was very organized with his curriculum, assignments, and tests. One was completely disorganized. Posted "lecture notes" that were cryptic, posted several versions of the same assignments, listed one edition of the text book on moodle, and a different edition in the Syllabus, and had typos in the answer sheets (in formulas!) making it very difficult to follow.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus - I am an online graduate student

4 College Junior

Local Area: Its a good place around here. Nice small city close to white mountain.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are several place in a download where you can get food. They are alright.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life here in campus is great. It is suitable for everyone.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safely and security on this campus is great. There are cops everywhere doing their job to protect students and campus.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Due to off-campus housing being so close there are a lot of places to go and there's a bar scene in town.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many off-campus options that are close to the school it is practically on-campus still but you have so much more freedom and you can live with as many or as little people as you want. Off-campus housing is so unlimited at Plymouth and it is something everyone looks forward to.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is so nice and friendly and there are so many opportunities to meet new people. It is my favorite part of Plymouth.

Campus Housing: The on-campus housing at plymouth is pretty average. The rooms are spacious and it is a small campus so everything is close. But you cannot control who you live with and how people living around you act and live so it can be loud and irritating at time but it is a dorm so you cannot expect too much.
