Salem College is a very nice school, however there are some things that need serious work such as better quality food that doesn't give us food poisoning constantly near the end of spring term.
Maybe more transparency as to where our money goes, if not to better wifi and upkeep on all the dorms?
Better policies towards students of color and those who are LGBTQ+ .
We have these classes called REST, which is when students can learn about important topics such as Race and Ethnicity, Ethics, and the like. And we wish it was required so that some of our students (who very much need them).
The campus is beautiful, and the people are typically nice save for the few bad apples who don't like POC or immigrants. Professors are super helpful (typically), and most students have great relationships with them.
Overall, on the surface the school is great, however like any school it has its own deep dark secrets.
Salem College is a women's college in which there is a focus on preparing women to enter their desired career field with the best resume possible. There is a heavy emphasis on academics here and students are encouraged to go beyond average. Professors, faculty and staff all support each student and are willing to help them in any way. Salem also encourages its students to develop well-rounded resumes through involvement in extra curricular activities. Upon graduation, Salem students are fully prepared to take the next step whether it be graduate school, medical school, or seeking employment in a career of their dreams. Salem is a place where young women come to become distinguished professionals.
Thoughout my four years of being a student here, I've not only had the opportunity to engage in intellectual conversation in the classroom, but I've done so outside of the classroom . Whether it be open discussion with classmates and professors or in your room with friends, there is always a space where we are challenged to think and analyze what goes on in our daily lives. No this is not to say that every single thing we do is academic, but this is to say that Salem is a place that prepares students for the world. I can truly say that I have be pushed to think for myself and I've become more open hearing and respecting the different views that others may have. In doing so, I can truly say that Salem has been a huge help in my personal growth and I am glad that I made the decision to come here.
I will be attending this fall however my sister graduated a few years back and the school is everything she said it was. The people are all super nice and more than welcoming, the teachers and students I have meet so far are really caring and want you to get involved with all the activities and clubs and the campus itself is beautiful, it reminds me of a scene from a Disney classic.

Take Facebook with a large grain of salt. What you see on there is what people want you to see. Social media lies.
If it doesn’t work out it's alright. Everything you encounter is a learning experience. You can always try something new.
Don't rely on other people for your happiness. The only way to carry happiness with you throughout life is to find it in yourself. Focus on the things that give you joy.
Be the person who points out the good. The more positive energy you emit, the more positive energy you will absorb. And you'll like being around yourself a lot more.
Don't let comparison rob you of joy. All comparison has negative intentions. You and your experiences are completely different from everyone else’s.
Remember to take time to breath every day. Good, intentioned inhalations and exhalations.
Bring more hangers than you think you’ll need.
Write in lists because you (and I) are fond of lists.
My classmates are far less mature than I expected to find in college.
That there is more emphasis given to traditional students wellfare than the "adult" (over 23, even by one day) students. If you are an adult student who is looking to participate in on-campus activities you are on your own. However, with a bit of hard work, you can wiggle your way into nearly every student organization the Trads manage.
A person who is eager to learn and likes an enviroment with low teacher/student ratios. A person who truly wants to better themselves.
My school is unique in that it is much smaller than the other schools I considered, therefore, the interaction between teacher and student is more evident. A closer connection is made and this eventually leads to doing better in classes because the teachers really help.
If your going to go to school be serious about it because there is alot of studying involved.
What I love about Salem College is the fact the classes are so small . The teachers and staff are all so eager to help you succeed.
A small, antiquated historical school stuck in its old ways.
One of the worst aspects of Salem College is the administration's use of funds. As a historical college and tourist attraction, Salem spends much of its money on tending to the appearance of the buildings and grounds. As a student with great financial need, I feel that much of the funds spent on cosmetics for the campus could go toward scholarship awards. Money spent on repainting the shutters every year could go toward financial aid. I wish the school would invest more money in its students rather than the appearance of its campus.
A liberal arts college formed in 1772, Salem is one of the first women's institution in the United States. Salem is known for her moravian roots, diverse student body and strong academics that offer a great encouraging campus for the young women attending. Another important aspect of Salem is the strong sisterhood providing a warm environment with support and success.
A person that is looking for a large campus with large class structures. A person seeking a school that offers a football or basetball team. A person that desires a campus in a really large metropolitan area.
Salem College's acedemic world, I won't lie, is tough. After taking AP classes in high school, I thought college classes would be a breeze..I was wrong. Salem professors know how to push students to their brink, whether that be testing our knowledge or showing us how much we still have to learn. Class size is less than 30 students per class which allows one on one meetings with her professor. This is such a big help, and it's not something you could get from a public school!
The really cool thing about Salem is that we appreciate all activities and respect all types of groups. I wouldn't say that some are necessarily more popular than others; it all depends on personal preference.
Salem is the best decision I have ever made. In the three years that I've been here, I've grown as an individual and I've learned so many transferable and relevant life-skills. I can truly say that the experience here is indescribable and irreplaceable. I wouldn't trade my school for the world!
Most people ask Salem students if we are lesbians. Although some of our student body identifies as lesbian, the majority of our students will say, "Uh, no. I've have a boyfriend at Wake Forest University" (or something close to that!). This stereotype follows all women's colleges around, and has for decades. But, it is in fact false.
Sometimes since the classes are so small, you are called on in class. And I dont like to be called on.
