Success Stories
The diploma hanging above my desk is what makes me the proud Salem graduate I am today. The experiences I had in each and every class at Salem are unmatched by most, yet coveted by many. Salem took me to Oxford University, where I studied under Vernon Bogdanor, Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Salem supported my research ambitions when my work around poverty correlations was accepted to the National Conference on Undergraduate Research in Ogden, Utah. As a Salem student, I researched the emerging economies of Eastern Europe…in Eastern Europe (Prague, Czech Republic). Experiential learning? Salem gives it an entirely new meaning.
