New Student Center
Following a groundbreaking ceremony that took place on a cold December afternoon in 2012, Salem College is pleased to announce that the dedication event for Salem's first student center will take place Tuesday, May 13, 2014, at noon. This event will celebrate nearly 18 months of construction and the generous contributions of those who are making it possible to offer future students a contemporary facility for collaboration and community life.
This new facility will showcase a vibrant campus and act as a hub for student activity. The student center will feature a café, bookstore, theater, student lounge, meeting rooms and a student organizational workroom. Lambert Architecture + Interiors has designed the project that will be built by Frank L. Blum Construction to be modern and open while reflecting Salem’s historic roots. Located adjacent to Corrin Refectory and Bryant Hall, this will be the first new building erected on Salem’s campus since 1982.
"At Salem, our students are the heart of our mission. We are delighted that the new center will be located in the heart of campus and will provide a hub for student events and gatherings. It is especially appropriate that our newest building will pay tribute to one of our core values--community--and we look forward to generations of students and friends enjoying the new facility in the future,” said Susan Pauly, President of Salem Academy and College.
