Do alot of research and make sure you know what school is right for you. College isnt light on the wallet so make sure your choice is something you can enjoy and embrace the next 4+ years of your life.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

That its not easy for commuters considering its a commuter school. Everyone has trouble parking in the mornings, the food is horrible on campus, no one ever stays on the weekends. There are alot of better state schools in Massachusetts.

Someone who is open minded and wants to meet people. Someone who enjoys school and will focus on their schoolwork.

People who commute to school and have their own seperate live at home, and are unwilling to make friends or be friendly to classmates.

Visit the schools you are thinking about attending during the time students are there to really see what campus is like. LIVE ON CAMPUS!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about Salem State College is that there is no social aspect of school. Looking in the cafeteria more people are sitting alone than are sitting with friends. People come to this school just to do work, and go home.

I want to encourage parents and students to put their heart towards finding what college is best for them. I know I have. Don't lose focus and remember how rewarding it will be in the end. Get involved, study hard, persue your dream, and don't let such a wonderful oppurtunity past you by. It's your life, your future, and your success, make the best of it!

I love how the school is near the coast, and that you can smell the ocean. I love how pretty it is when the leaves change color. However, it is most unique because of the Salem witch trials which happened in the 1600s. Everyone comes to visit around Halloween. I have even seen people with California plates. Even people from different countries come to visit around that time of year.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit all the schools your child is interested in. Make sure your child is 100% happy with his or choice .

Salem State College is a mixing pot. There are so many things to do. If you work hard you can learn whatever you want and will do well.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It is very difficult to look at college as something else other than a money game. However, if you go to a school that specializes in your major and are passionate about you as a student ? the money is worth it. So instead of going to the cheapest school or the school closest to home, consider your future or your son/daughter?s future. A good education will always pay off. A good education requires a student to be active in their education, study hard, and be organized. Ask questions, get involved, and enjoy life. If you don?t enjoy your classes then you are less likely to do well. As we all know, failing a class means wasting money. If you are going to your dream school and are paying for it why would you want to waste thousands of dollars? So - find the right school that will allow you to accomplish your dreams, be actively involved in your studies, and always try your best. Best of luck to all too all students and parents and welcome to college!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I'm a BFA design major and my professors are amazing. They are passionate and really know their craft. We have the best professors ever!
