Salem University has done so much for me throughout my time here. This has been a place for that had stepped me out of my comfort zone. Growing up locally, I never truly thought of going to Salem University, but I am glad I did. As I have received a quality education, but more importantly lifelong experiences and relationships along the way. There is no way of paying back all the opportunities that this school has given me!
