Plymouth State is a very great school, it is just the term "okay" because it is, their is not anything amazing about this school, but this school does not totally stink.

I absolutely LOVE Plymouth State! I believe it is the perfect fit for me! I love the sense of community I feel every day when I walk out my door onto the beautiful campus! Plymouth is such an outdoor school that it turned me onto hiking and just enjoying nature! I also love how much of a personal relationship I have built with each one of my professors! The professors being super personable during my audition into the music department is part of the reason I decided to come to Plymouth! One last great aspect is the fact that I have the ability to take Adventure Ed classes that I will be able to combine with my Music Ed classes to create the best career path for my interests!
