3.60 Average Rating
i absolutely love everything about salve. the classes you're in are small so your teacher knows who you are and you know your classmates. we go to school in the most beautiful place i think in the world.
Elna from Westbrook, CT
Salve is a great school to attend if you are focused on your academics, seeking a deeper spiritual life (or not), plan to get involved in the community, and wish to be by the ocean.
