What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first got Salem State I felt like it was a little hard to get involved. I do love it because everyone is so sweet, but I do think that they need to be more open about the opportunities that are available. I absolutely love my roommates and have grown very close to them however some of the dorms are exactly what I would have thought they would’ve been like. Be current one that I am living in is decently old, and dirty. However you do get used to it. My favorite part of Salem State is the gym. They have an absolutely beautiful gym which I love working out in, not only that but they offer several classes to take part in. Another beautiful part of Salem State is the library, it is rather large and has absolutely everything you’re looking for. I do love my college even though some parts of it are all that beautiful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In short, Salem State University is a well-respected educational facility that prides itself on its campus resources and knowledgeable professors. While campus life for current residents could be improved on, including first-year dormitories and quality of meals at dining facilities, the location itself, being the Halloween capital of the world, makes up for it. Salem State is the perfect university for someone looking for a well-rounded education at a rather small school. Salem State feels smaller in population than it actually is, giving it a wholesome community feel.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is my first semester and I love it here. The people are nice for the most part, I have great professors and once you get used to it, it isn't as sketchy at night. I have a 4.0 and I don't dread going to my classes. The only thing that could be better is the food.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem State has a lot to work on. The campus is nice, some good people here and there, but they really need to work on making the minority feel safe and welcomed in the school. The food is just terrible, but sometimes its good rarely though. They are good at announcing events happening around campus. They really need to work on keeping promises made to the students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good cheap school. You will get a degree without selling your soul. However, there is not a big community here. It is mostly a commuter school so there is little school spirit and the sports do mediocre. Most people just go to class then go home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred to Salem State my sophomore year which gives me the ability to compare it to other schools. The students are very friendly and welcoming though the transfer process offered is not great. The food leaves a lot to be desired while the party scene is more than enough to fill your weekend. The town of Salem is rich with history so there is always something new to do and discover. Salem State has some very interesting clubs and classes though the classes are often hard to get into due to the awful registration process. The professors, in my experience, have been quite smart and passionate about their subject but overall not very eager to go above and beyond to help students. All things considered, I think that Salem State University is a good school with a lot of good people but like anything in life it is not perfect.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like it here at Salem State University and I have a lot of friends who attend here that like it as well. It is one of the better state run universities from what I have heard and I am not ashamed to tell people that it is where I attend. If there is one low point here at Salem , it is definitely the food, but there are plenty of off campus places to eat.
