What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Salem State University is a fantastic school with amazing people and great opportunities. The small-city atmosphere is perfect for someone who wants a bit of business but grew up in suburbs. The multiple campuses are in walking distance, which makes it a great campus if a student doesn't have a car. There are multiple residence halls, making the community here very involved. The resources on campus are amazing as well, as we have 3 dining halls and plenty of organizations to help student growth.

It’s a good school like any school they need work. Overall they’re not bad for a state school. 4 years go by quick. The professors are caring , they’re available. Some of them are just awful but those are far and few in between. The others are amazing and they’ll really become great mentors.

We will have parking opening up nearby. It's a large lot and a literal 3-minute walk to campus. Please reach out at community@parqyt.com to reserve your space for the semester or year round.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very good academic school. Every professor I have had has really cared about the students and are immensely helpful and available. The biggest complaint I hear is in the food, which is being overhauled this year. Definitely a school to look into if you favor your learning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem State University's strongest suit is diversity, and is among one of the most individualistic cities in the Boston area. This correlation between the multitudes of unique activities and conversational people allows residents to explore themselves, as well as give them the chance to create new incredible experiences to learn and grow from. This school truly is dedicated to giving its students opportunities to enjoy campus life, but the professors on the academic side of things really do push us to be the best we can and encourage us daily, in or out of class, and that takes the cake overall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

great school it is very underrated. This school is a great size, there are many beautiful spots on and off campus. The gym is very nice and free for students. Also, the classes are small with most being around 15-25 students which is very helpful because you are able to have better conversations with your professor and just have a better educational experience in general. Overall this is a really great school possible one of the top state schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really loved the diversity of the student population, it lead to a diverse views and opinions in and out of the classroom. There were a of non-traditional college students and many commuted. That made it challenging for campus life and finding a community of people to hang out with. I really did enjoy my experience there and really appreciate the Campus Educators on Sexual Assault group that did a lot of prevention work too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While Salem State has very bright and hard working students, the biggest flaw of the university is that they do not listen to their students who have historically marginalized identities. Often they express the lack of support they receive from the school and time and time again, they are simply ignore or they pretend to make a change and it never comes to fruition.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem is a decent enough school. Definitely getting what you pay for with the crumbling buildings and sub-par cafeterias. The school needs to dedicate some of its resources to fixing and maintaining old facilities rather than building new ones. I only have experience with the Theatre professors, and they are generally very nice and helpful. Never been turned down when I had questions.
