WHAT I LIKED

I like that Salem State University is small and everyone is friendly toward one another. I also like the size of the dorms, they are very spacious and have plenty of room. I also like the small classroom sizes because it's easy to talk to professors and ask for extra help. There are also a lot of job opportunities on campus for students and everything is close together.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food at the dining hall could be better. The buildings where we have classes also are in need of work.
