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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem State University is a welcoming place located in a beautiful campus. There are shops, pharmacies and food places nearby that will facilitate your life as a college student. There are some negative sides to Salem State University, like at every single school, and that includes the dining hall food and how early everything closes around the city. Other than that, the Nursing program has been great and my classes and professors are exactly what I was looking for. The program is truly excellent! I also am very grateful to have found my awesome roommate, and can say that the dorms are a place where you will make friends if you put yourself out there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love my school! I honestly regret not being more involved in previous years, I wish I wasn’t so shy and I wish I had more time to be in all the groups I am interested in! Most of our professors I have taken classes with have amazing availability and truly care about us excelling.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem State University is in the Halloween town of America it is very unique, given its history with the Salem witch trials. The faculty is very direct, and expects the best from you. The groups and communities on campus are very close knit. And where I met most of my friends for life. It is growing in diversity and has its own special charm. It's definitely place that you make it what you want it to be. There is something for everyone but you definitely have to go and put yourself out there or you could find yourself not getting the full experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a great school to get your education. Your explore new things everyday if you are active on campus. Some people claim, Salem State sucks because they do not participate on anything. Therefore they do not really know what they are missing out. When you join on campus activities, you meet new connections everyday, you get to know them, meet new teachers and helps you in the long run.
