    Salem State University is a great place for those students trying to get a quality education on a state school's tuition. Some of the better majors include geography, nursing, and theatre. The academic standards are on the lower side, but there is a lot of opportunity for students who have the ambition to seek out additional opportunities.

    Salem State University has helped me so much through the transitional stages of going to college. I joined a Learning Community, and through that I have learned a lot and I've made a lot of close friends. I would suggest going into a Learning Community at Salem State to anyone I know going into college in the near future.

    Salem State has great professors and helpful staff. They are constantly trying to upgrade the facilities and campus as a whole, but the construction can be a bit frustrating at times. In all, the opportunities they provide are great.
