What Students Are Saying

3.30 Average Rating
Come check out Salem and stay overnight for fall visit and scholarship weekend. It's an amazing place to be. I love Salem and I know you will too :)
Tiffany from High Point, NC
Definitely prepare yourself for an intense workout just living on campus - the school was built on a steep hill and doesn't tend to believe in elevators!
Katie from Knoxville, TN
Take honors and AP courses, do a lot of community service, write a great essay and get excellent recommendations. Rigorous coursework here, not for students looking to coast or party hearty.
ANASTASIA from Hallandale Beach, FL
Come for Scholarship weekend where you get to stay on campus for the weekend and attend classes that interest you on Monday.
Melina from High Point, NC
Perspective students should go to all the events that are sponsored and they should definitely join clubs and go for leadership positions.
Morgan from Asheboro, NC
Work ahead! The syllabuses are the key to keeping up with work.
Krista from Pilot Mountain, NC
This is a school that you have to see in-person to see if it's a place that you belong.
Catherine from Cape Coral, FL
Be prepared to give your best at Salem. Breathe and have fun so you can work hard when you need to.
Melissa from Lexington, NC
Understand that no college is perfect. There will be things you like and things you dislike about Salem. However, keep an open mind and you'll find it very enjoyable.
