3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of my professors have been extremely helpful and care about their students, while some just seem to go about their day and just want to get the class over with. I can't say which there is more of, but I've experienced both. All of my nursing professors seem to really love what they do and they are very helpful in getting students to achieve their goals. However, some of my general education professors just seemed like they wanted to get out of there as soon as they could. It really effects how you learn when the professor doesn't seem to care. If the professor doesn't care, why should you? The class sizes are small at SSU, which is awesome. It helps to learn better in a smaller class because you can always see and hear the professor. There are multiple courses offered at SSU, which is great as well. I'm in the honors program, which I enjoy because it gives me more of a challenge.

Overall Experience: The value of a degree at SSU depends on the major, I think. I'm in SSU's nursing school, which has an awesome reputation, and I know that the value of my degree will be pretty good. I can't speak for other majors, because I don't know much about them, but I can say that SSU is pretty easy to get into for other majors. Therefore, I don't see how the value of certain degrees there can be that high. The alumni network for nursing is huge. I have never been to the career center, nor have I tried to get a job through SSU yet, so I can't speak for that aspect.

Health & Safety: The safety problem at SSU doesn't have much to do with the campus, but the area around campus. Salem isn't the most classy or rick town. There are a lot of low income housing options and the crime rate can be pretty high. My campus is surrounded by different areas of Salem, that often have crimes associated with them. Us at school are constantly getting safety alerts and texts messages regarding a burglary or some type of violence occurring at an area near campus. It can be very scary walking back from different campuses at night when you're alone. It's especially scary at night walking back from your car if it's in a far away parking lot (like mine was this year). On campus, I feel relatively safe, but once I step off campus to walk to another campus, I don't feel safe.

Campus Housing: Living on campus can be a drag. Most kids go home on the weekends, so it can get very quiet and boring. The housing options are all over the place, along with the lottery system. The housing gets better for sophomore year, but then worse for junior and senior year, it makes no sense. The lottery system screwed me over sophomore and junior year. Both years I got stuck in the worst dorm possible and it was very upsetting seeming at though I have a high status at school when it comes to grades and credits. I found it extremely unfair, along with the parking pass lottery. I ended up having a parking spot that was ridiculously far away from my dorm and cost me $350. My school tends to the commuters more than it tends to the residents, and it's very unfair.

Greek Life: Greek life almost doesn't exist at my school. There's one fraternity and two sororities. We just recently added the second sorority. Nobody really pays much attention to Greek life. They don't get their own houses or anything like that, so there's no party scene like there is at some schools. Non-Greeks seem to have no interest in how the Greeks act because it's so low key at my school. Greek life doesn't effect my school much at all. There are sometimes fundraisers that are going on at the dining hall or some place, but it's not enough for the whole school to get involved or even know about.

3 College Junior

Athletics: My school is division 3 when it comes to sports. Certain sports are more popular than others, but team spirit are not as big at my school than it is at other schools. I very rarely go to sporting events because they're not as big and fun as I would like. The gym at my school has been partly updated, which is nice, but it could use some more touches.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The diversity of the campus makes it tough to fit in sometimes, but it's nice to meet new people. Most people are very welcoming and happy to be there.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: the professors really care about you succeeding

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Salem State University has been great. This school has allowed me and helped me open so many doors for myself and my future. As a Business major, being a student and having the opportunity to work for the business-side of the school as well as attend the school as an undergraduate is amazing to me. I get to learn important skills for my future inside and outside the classroom. What makes my school unique I believe is the diversity and opportunities my school provides for people of all races, genders, and religions. If I had to do it all over I would choose Salem State University again in a heartbeat!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Salem State has been a great place for me and has really helped me become better in the field that I wish to pursue. All the teachers that I have had have been amazing and really care that their students understand what is going on in the classroom. They have also made the classroom environment very welcoming and accepting, they really made me feel like they actually cared about me and what was going on in my life. Also the school itself creates a welcoming and pleasant community. It is an extremely diverse school which I personally believe is extremely important in school environments because it shows and teaches kids the different cultures, and lifestyle from all over the world. Nobody is looked at or treated weirdly because they are different because as students we are constantly surrounded by people of different backgrounds.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: For many of my professors I have enjoyed fully, however there was this one professor that had made it very difficult and they could not do anything about this professor due to being under the 10 year. However, besides that I have enjoyed all my professors I have had at Salem State University.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel our security on our campus has shown in multiple cases that they have a really well understanding of keeping our community safe. This year alone we have had multiple incidence that has caused out safety to be at risk but our police and security have taken control the situation allowing it to be safe for many on campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: At Salem State greek life is just starting up their is no significance difference between people who are in the greek life and non-greek life. I see Salem State allowing for their greek life to grow and expand allowing students to have that experience at Salem State.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Salem State University has been pretty well.It has allowed me to be able to experience new things that have allowed me to grow in certain avenues. Besides having a road block from graduating this year, going to Salem State has helped me figure out what I want to do with my life.

Athletics: Athletic at our school is very big, the community comes together to cheer on our athletes. Especially, showed this year when our boys hockey team went on to winning the championship of their division and moved on to nationals.The school really rallied together to cheer them on, as well as support our rugby team.
