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.

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.

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.

I love Salem state university. I think the professors are very involved and want to see their students succeed. The class sizes are perfect and resources are available everywhere. The food could be better but there are always options. The campus housing is great. The dorms are pretty spacious!

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.
