Plymouth State University. The teachers will do anything to help you succeed here... I go here right now... And its a pretty reputable school in New England, its not the best but its not the worst. I know a lot of people say they like plymouth more than Uconn, or UNH because they feel like they can actually connect with their teachers.
Not to mention your 20 minutes from Waterville Valley, 30 from Loon and Cannon, 40 From Gunstock, an hour from Bretton, an hour and a half to cranmore, Jay Peak is a 2 hour drive, and you can hit Sunday River all within a few hours... Lift tickets at Cannon are $7.50 through a school program (just show up to the mountain with your school ID and Drivers license and pay $7.50) You can get a College Pass to Loon and 3 other mountains for $350, and it's easy as hell to get a job at Waterville working the lifts and get a season pass there. (thats what i do.)
It comes and it goes. Get it while it Lasts.
