What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good cheap school. You will get a degree without selling your soul. However, there is not a big community here. It is mostly a commuter school so there is little school spirit and the sports do mediocre. Most people just go to class then go home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred to Salem State my sophomore year which gives me the ability to compare it to other schools. The students are very friendly and welcoming though the transfer process offered is not great. The food leaves a lot to be desired while the party scene is more than enough to fill your weekend. The town of Salem is rich with history so there is always something new to do and discover. Salem State has some very interesting clubs and classes though the classes are often hard to get into due to the awful registration process. The professors, in my experience, have been quite smart and passionate about their subject but overall not very eager to go above and beyond to help students. All things considered, I think that Salem State University is a good school with a lot of good people but like anything in life it is not perfect.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like it here at Salem State University and I have a lot of friends who attend here that like it as well. It is one of the better state run universities from what I have heard and I am not ashamed to tell people that it is where I attend. If there is one low point here at Salem , it is definitely the food, but there are plenty of off campus places to eat.

I love it there. The Campus is beautiful, you're a 20 mintue walk from down town Salem. They students and fauilty are friendly and push you do you're best. The foods pretty good. There all something to do whether its on campus, a school event, or off campus. You'll never be bored.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem State can be an enjoyable place for many if they put in the effort. Attending events is very important to gain relationships with other students. If you are a commuter it becomes harder to dive into the culture and gain great life long friends so I suggest staying for events, games and talking to classmates.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Salem State was never at the top of my list. It was one of those schools I shoved in the back of my mind- just incase". When I finally got on campus, however, I was surprised at what I discovered. The SSU community is not one that you find at just any college or university. The individuals- from staff to students- are very welcoming and approachable. Salem State is filled with vibrant students with a yearn to grow more knowledgeable in all aspects of their life. The kind of support and encouragement displayed is remarkable. Salem State is more than just a college. Its a home for students to grow and flourish. Its the foundation for a thriving, successful future. Yes, it has its flaws but overall its truly an amazing experience and a great opportunity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love salem state university, I feel extremely safe there, the people who work there are so nice and if you ever need help with anything they are always available to help you. I spend most of my time in the library and they have a huge variety of books and rooms which you can use to study with your friends.

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.
