International Student Visa (F-1) Services
The international atmosphere at Salem is evident not only in the classroom but also on campus. Approximately seven percent of the student body is composed of students from outside the United States. All of Salem's departments, particularly the dean of students' office, help these students share their cultures with the rest of the campus as well as with each other.
Office of International
This office, which comes under
the umbrella of the dean of students, is located in Shober House. The
coordinator of international student services is Esther Gonzalez; she may
be reached via email or at 336/917-5730.
Campus Learning Activities
Throughout the year, Salem
sponsors talks by prominent personalities, movies, cultural workshops
and shows. Events also include "awareness" weeks that focus on specific
cultures and regions as well as conferences that examine global issues.
Other programs expose international students to various aspects of the
American culture, foster community among international students of Salem
and those from other college campuses and assist them in socializing
