3 College Freshman

Athletics: There seem to be a good variety of both varsity and intramural sports to choose from. The new gym is absolutely beautiful. Taking SMS classes is very enjoyable.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a commuter student, I have only seen the dorms during orientation, and have only gone into my friends' dorms a few times.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: From the classroom I was in when the stabbing took place on campus, I felt like the situation was handled well. However, after the shelter in place was lifted, I learned that many classrooms did not get the emergency phone call, and did not shelter in place. Also, the students were the ones who received information before the professors did because of social media being updated before the more official pages. However, I usually feel safe when I am on campus, especially when in a group. Walking alone has not given me any problems, the walkways are usually very well lit, unless you are walking down to O'Keefe after dark. Generally a safe place, though.

Transportation: The school shuttle is terribly unreliable and completely unpredictable. As for the Public Shuttle, they tell you they will be there in fifteen minutes, and take an hour and a half to pick you up. The car usually smells of weed.

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If you want to party, look elsewhere.

2 College Freshman

Academics: As an undeclared student, I feel as though there wasn't much assistance in the "finding a major" process

3 College Freshman

Academics: Except for the special few, classes are a joke and teachers are very easy

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: No particular interest. Never was one for greek life.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It's pretty high school on campus. Very clique-y and not much diversity.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are okay. Don't expect to live it up. It's usually quiet. Terrible amenities. (washers and driers are miserable) Certainly not the best of what's around.

1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The cops have the place locked down tight. Don't expect to do much.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: Campus is dead. It's a commuter school. If you are looking just to go to school, then that's it. You won't get a full college experience here. School events are a joke, and no one cares about sports. There's no pulse at Salem.

Off-Campus Housing: I dont really know too much about the off campus living.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Like all schools my school has its cons, however in all I really do enjoy my school. I feel like I am getting good educations and the teachers are very helpful.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Usually I can find parking however there are times where it takes me quite sometime to find parking.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I have only been to a few locations that are not a chain or franchise and my experiences are nothing out of the ordinary. The food is average as is the customer service.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The black kids hangout with usually only the black kids and they look at white kids like we have something wrong with us.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have a lot of sports offered but students don't really go to the events unfortunately.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is not promoted that much and I really wish this was a huge school dedicated to Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Computers and printers are all new it is great. Good speed

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration is stressful and not always explained well. Social work professors are awesome.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe when I'm walking with someone but when I'm alone there's a lot of unlit places.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: People are really clicky here, there's always a group of guys or girls that only really hangout with each other.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not always in the best locations and there is never parking anywhere.
