I chose Salem University because of the environment, people, and one class a month.
Salem is the kind of school that gives every person the opportunity to be whomever they want and do the things they want to do while getting an education.
The staff and faculty do everything to help prepare us students for the “real world”, a great way they do that is by treating us with respect, even though we are students, the students also treat staff and faculty with respect.
I chose to attend Salem University because it gave me an opportunity to focus on one class a month.
The community is what I like most about the university, it’s filled with many wonderful people that make the university lively and fun.
My advice would be to tell prospective students to be themselves, have fun, and don’t let anyone stop them from achieving their goals.
I love the atmosphere at Salem, its like one big happy family.
