What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I love it here. The school truly does care about your well-being and your experience here at Salem State. All schools have their flaws, there's no perfect university. SSU can most definitely improve the dining hall food; I know many students who have gotten sick from the food. However, we did make a change, and ended up having one of the dining halls take our meal swipes for lunch rather than using our Dining Dollars! There's no other university like Salem State, and I'm a proud Viking!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The academics, professors and facilities are really good. The housing is pretty good depending on the building, the freshmen dorms are old. The food could definitely use some work. The location is really cool. It's a short walk from the beach and the park, which is a nice place to go to study and hang out and downtown can be pretty exciting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is great in academics and housing. There isn't a real party scene unless you would like to party in the dorms every weekend. There isn't much to do in Salem period. If you don't have a car then it's kind of a hit or miss. When you come here, try to find places and people you fit in with and put yourself out there or you'll literally be in your dorm or room every weekend of the semester.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a freshman living at home, and i can honestly say i wouldnt have chosen another school. I am very happy i went here, the students are kind, the teachers are kind, and there are so many majors to chose from, and there are about 100 classes i want to take (not possible, unfortunately). Its an affordable school, and the only complaint i have is the food is mediocre, but hey, its college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem State is a good affordable option for commuters in the Salem area as well as for potential nursing students. Unfortunately, that's where the majority of this universities benefits stop. There is virtually no nighlife for the under 21 crowd, the dining halls options are borderline inedible, and a good portion of the professors put in less effort than your high school teachers probably did.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem Sate University is overall a good school. The teachers I've had are committed to helping you succeed, your advisor will work with you to make sure your college plan works, the gen eds are super easy to fulfill since the requirements are broader and more flexible. My only complaint is that the food is a bit meh sometimes and I wish there were places you could cook on campus, but that can be helped with a quick walk downtown or just across the street. The dorms are nice and well maintained.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am very happy with my choice to attend SSU. The food is awful, but most colleges don't have the best food either. I'm pleased with the class sizes, they're intimate and you can actually get to know your professor. The location is great; there are things to do in downtown and Boston is only a short train ride away. Overall, I really do like SSU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem State is just like any other state school. Common core requirements overtake classes students actual want to take. The academic buildings and dorms are nice. The food is awful, but most other colleges do not have the best food either. Some of the professors probably should not be teaching, but most get the job done. Overall, not a bad school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem State University is growing but I feel like I'm paying for the name (they recently upgraded from 'College'). They focus on being a Liberal Arts school and force you to take many pointless courses that keep you at the college for five or six years if you start undeclared. The music department is dedicated and growing rapidly. It has better faculty than any surrounding schools. The faculty are talented, passionate, brilliant, and pass on skills and knowledge applicable to music and to life. My Salem State pride comes from the music department that I am so proud to be a part of.
