Salem enjoys a unique picturesque and idyllic campus in the heart of Old Salem. Sturdy brick buildings, carefully placed on a rolling hillside setting in scenic Winston-Salem, North Carolina, have served boldly through generations as classrooms, residence halls and gathering places. Well-built and lovingly maintained, they have supported and welcomed the footsteps of many thousands of young women and girls pursuing higher education.
The brick walkways of the campus are a hallmark reminder of Salem’s excellence in educating women. These bricks remain firm beneath the feet of Salem students as they aim high and explore unfamiliar skills and concepts. These bricks echo the determination of young women as they click along the crisscross paths that lead to knowledge in the sciences, mathematics, arts, dance, music, writing, teaching and so much more. These bricks teach humility with each graceful tumble. As foundations in the May Dell, these bricks are imprinted with the pride of each graduating class. And we stand in awe, remembering others who have walked the same paths for more than 240 years.
