Plymouth State University operates within the higher education system of NH. We have the lowest state support in the United States. We compete with four other universities for the same funding and students. We have a declining population and a very low unemployment rate, which drives down college applications as students are able to get work without a degree.
Plymouth has one of the longest continual stream gage data set in the United States. We have a great history of environmental involvement and activism.
Plymouth is a very safe community and the connection between the town and University is very positive. The town welcomes students and student and faculty involvement in the elementary schools, local businesses, and local events.
